Mohammed Nabi Becomes Oldest Player to Top ICC ODI All-Rounder Rankings

Afghanistan’s veteran all-rounder Mohammed Nabi has become the oldest player to claim the top spot in the ICC ODI all-rounders’ list, ending Shakib Al Hasan’s long-standing reign.

Meanwhile, there’s little change in the Test rankings, with India’s Jasprit Bumrah maintaining his position as the leading bowler. Ravindra Jadeja continues to dominate the Test all-rounders’ rankings as he gears up for his return in the third Test against England starting Thursday.

Nabi’s remarkable performance during Afghanistan’s ODI series opener against Sri Lanka, where he scored 136 runs and picked up a wicket, propelled him to the No.1 spot in the ODI all-rounders’ list. At 39 years and 1 month, Nabi surpassed Tillakaratne Dilshan’s record to become the oldest player to achieve this feat.

Shakib Al Hasan, who held the top position for an impressive 1739 days, was dethroned due to an ongoing injury concern and Nabi’s recent good form. In other rankings updates, South Africa’s Keshav Maharaj remains at the helm of the ODI bowlers’ list, while Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga and Dilshan Madushanka made significant advancements.
