Wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock, who scored 300 runs in the series including an innings of 178 off 113 balls in the opening ODI at Centurion for what was the second-highest individual score for South Africa, has moved up five places to fourth in the ICC rankings for ODI batsmen.

AB de Villiers, who missed the Australia series with injury, still sits atop the list.

Rilee Rossouw’s 311 runs in the series also saw him move up 30 slots to a career-best 33rd rank, while David Miller gained three slots to reach 35th rank.

Australia's star in the South Africa series, David Warner, surged to a career-best third position. He gained nine positions and moved into the top 10 for the first time after accumulating 386 runs during the series, including a fighting 173 in the final match in Cape Town which Australia lost by 31 runs.

Meanwhile, in the ICC rankings for ODI bowlers, Proteas leg-spinner Imran Tahir moved up two spots to reach third position.

New Zealand’s Trent Boult tops the list, followed by West Indies’ Sunil Narine.
