Rashid dethrones Shakib from top ODI all-rounder

Sports Reporter

Bangladesh premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was dethroned by Rashid Khan from the high echelon of the ICC ODI all-rounders’ rankings after his jaw-dropping performance in the just-concluded Asia Cup in UAE.

After losing his top spots in Twenty20 and then ODI rankings, Shakib remains on top only in ICC Test all-rounder rankings.

Rashid becomes the first cricketer from his country and 32nd overall to reach to position in the credible list with a jump of six places.

Afghanistan in-form leg-spinner, who shone in with both ball and bat, grabbed 10 wickets from five-match road string and scored 87 runs at an average of 43.50. His batting exploits included an unbeaten 57 against Bangladesh in Group phase outing.

The success he made especially with the ball saw him cross the 800-point mark during the tournament.

In contrary, Shakib Al Hasan though claimed seven wickets in four matches was unable to contribute much with his bat. Because of his injury on little left finger, he could not play the last Super Four match against Pakistan coupled with final against India.

With acute pains and swelling finger he returned home from UAE immediately, keeping Asia Cup incomplete. After his arrival, his injury deteriorated. Not to see any option, he approached to doctors at Apollo Hospitals in where his operation was done on last Friday.

Afghanistan opener Mohammad Shahaz gained 19 slots to place 36th position, his highest in two years, while leg-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman earned 15 slots to reach eighth position.

For Bangladesh, wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim attained a career-best 16th position, while Liton Kumar Das advanced 107 positions to reach 116th rank after his sublime century in the final meltdown.

Cutter-master Mustafizur Rahman moved up four places to take 12th position among the bowlers following his jaw-dropping performance. He chalked up his best bowling rating points of 651 and moved up the ranks at 12 in ODI bowling rankings.

Opener Tamim Iqbal held his position in 14 in batting ranking.
