Ravindra Jadeja continues to jointly head the bowlers' list, while Virat Kohli is the highest-ranked Indian batsman at fourth in the latest ICC ODI rankings.

India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is unchanged at seventh in the batsmen's list, followed by Suresh Raina at a distant joint-16th. 

In the bowling chart, R Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar held on to 18th and joint 20th positions respectively.

Jointly heading the list with West Indian Sunil Narine, Jadeja, however, slipped a rung to fourth in the all-rounder's list.

Meanwhile, Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson moved back into the top-10 of the bowlers' rankings after rising six places to eighth.

The latest rankings were released after Australia beat England by 49 runs in the fifth and final ODI at the Rose Bowl, in Southampton, on Monday, to claim the series 2-1. 

Johnson picked five wickets in the series against England and returned to the top 10 for the first time since October 2011, when he was ranked fourth.

Outside the top 20, Boyd Rankin in 25th (up by 21), George Dockrell in 34th (up by five), Majid Haq in 56th (up by six), Kevin O'Brien in 63rd (up by three) and Ravi Bopara in 66th (up by nine) are the other bowlers to move in the right direction.

Shane Watson, player of the match for his knock of 143 in the fifth and final ODI against England, ended the series with a run tally of 187 and is back in the top 10 of the batting table after moving up a place to 10th.

Watson was last ranked in the top ten in June, at ninth. 

Watson's effort with the bat and his three wickets in the series also helped him move up two places to third in the rankings for ODI all-rounders, still headed by Mohammad Hafeez, with Shakib Al Hasan in second place.
