New Delhi:

Indian captain Virat Kohli slipped to the third spot in the latest ICC rankings for ODI batsmen but his predecessor Mahendra Singh Dhoni climbed up the ladder to the 13th place in the latest rankings list issued on Friday.

Rohit Sharma slipped three places to claim the 12th spot, while Shikhar Dhawan was in the joint 14th spot with Englishman Jos Butler.

Among the bowlers, no Indian found a place in the top-10 with Akshar Patel being the highest placed at 12th, a drop of three positions. Following him closely was Amit Mishra at the joint 14th position.

The Indian team was unchanged at the third position in the team rankings. Meanwhile, Australia opener David Warner wrested the top spot rankings for ODI Batsmen.

The attacking left-hander has attained the top ranking for the first time, leapfrogging South Africa's AB de Villiers and Kohli after amassing 367 runs in the five-match home series against Pakistan which his side won 4-1.

There were other batsmen to gain too after India's 2-1 win over England in a series that ended on Sunday.

England batsman Jason Roy's three half-centuries have taken him into the top 20 for the first time as he has gained 23 slots to reach 17th. For India, Kedar Jadhav's 232 runs have helped him gain 57 slots to reach 47th ranking.
