Rabada took six wickets in four matches and climbed one place to slot in at No 8.

22-year-old Lungi Ngidi was South Africa's leading wicket-taker in the series with 10 scalps from four clashes and was rewarded for his efforts with a 57-place surge - to 88th - on the bowlers' ranking charts.

Left-arm wrist-spinner Tabraiz Shamsi's, who grabbed six wickets in three matches, climbed 47 places to 100th while Andile Phehlukwayo's nine wickets from five matches helped him climb six places to 52nd.

Meanwhile, in the batting department, all-rounder JP Duminy rose 11 spots to 40th after accumulating 227 runs at 56.75.

Although he managed just two wickets with his part-time off-spin, Duminy shot up 10 places to 23rd on the table for all-rounders.

Proteas stand-in skipper for the final two ODIs, Quinton de Kock, who was South Africa's second-highest run-getter with 213 runs in the series, retained his seventh position in the rankings.

However, the experienced duo of Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla endured difficult series' and that was reflected in the rankings.

Du Plessis, who picked up an injury mid-way through the series, slipped three spots, to fall out of the Top 10 batting rankings, to 11th, while Amla dropped two places to 14th.
