Hashim Amla has displaced his team mate, AB de Villiers, as the No 1 batsman on the latest Reliance Mobile ICC Player Rankings for ODI batsmen after another outstanding series against Pakistan which ended in Dubai on Monday.

Amla was the leading run-getter in the series with 291 runs, including one century and two half-centuries. As such, he earned 40 ratings points which were enough to put him ahead of De Villiers.

De Villiers had started the series in the No. 1position on 817 ratings points and finished in second place on 809 ratings points after scoring 209 runs in the series with two half-centuries.

Also on the rise are South Africa captain Graeme Smith and left-handed batsman JP Duminy. Smith has moved up one place to 15th position after scoring 124 runs in three matches while Duminy has improved his ranking by five places and he now occupies 23rd position.

In the rankings for bowlers Morne Morkel has achieved a career-best ranking to date. Morkel has vaulted 13 places to 12th position after bagging eight wickets in the series.

Morkel now becomes South Africa’s highest-ranked bowler, leap-frogging off-spinner Johan Botha (14th) and Dale Steyn (17th).

Also moving in the right direction is Lonwabo Tsotsobe in 50th (up by 12 places).

In the rankings for all-rounders, Jacques Kallis has moved up one place to fourth spot.
