As far as the batsman rankings go, Virat Kohli and David Warner round off the top three along with De Villiers.

ODI bowlers' table is topped by Pakistan's Hasan Ali, who has moved up as many as six places to become the fifth bowler at the No. 1 place of the ODI rankings this year. De Villiers has now been at the top for 2,124 days while Richards was number one for 2,306 days, ICC said.

Babar Azam of Pakistan is at fourth place.

India lost their top ODI spot to South Africa in the latest team rankings released by International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday.

With South Africa having already won the one-day series, 19-year-old all-rounder Wiaan Mulder also looks likely to make his debut, with captain Faf du Plessis having stated after Wednesday's series-clinching win in Paarl that South Africa were "looking to give a few guys opportunities" in the dead rubber game.

Martin Keown reveals what's being said about Jack Wilshere at Arsenal
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has claimed that Troy Deeney's comments on the character of the Gunners were "not justified". That is according to pundit and former Arsenal star Martin Keown. "About what was said, I spoke with him and it is finished".

Among the allrounders, Hafeez toppled Shakib Al Hasan soon after he was reported for a suspect bowling action for the third time in his career. But after facing a defeat in the first match, they had no other way but to win the rest two ODI matches.

India had claimed the top rank in the ICC rankings as a result of its 4-1 win over Australia.

If India win that match, they too will be on 121 points but ahead on a decimal-point calculation.

But India have a chance to reclaim their top spot as they host New Zealand in a three-match ODI series, scheduled to begin in Mumbai on October 22.
