There is no change in the top 10 of the all-rounders' list. Pakistan's Mohammed Hafeez continues to head this table with Shakib Al Hasan and Watson in second and third places respectively.

In the latest ICC ODI Championship Table, the top half is so closely bunched that just 12 ratings points separate India from sixth-placed Pakistan.

For the West Indies, the 0-5 series loss against Australia saw it drop four ratings points to 84 even as it continued to retain seventh place.
