    Following their fine form against West Indies this month, Australia bowlers Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc have leaped up the ODI Bowling Rankings.

    Hazlewood, who took five wickets at 5.80 with an economy of 2.07 an over, moved five places to second place.

    Starc, who took 11 wickets at 10.63 climbed 10 spots to eighth – the highest he has sat on the rankings since early 2020.

    Meanwhile, Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga, who sat third among T20I bowlers before this week’s update, has moved to second.

    He took 2/28 in the series opener against India on Sunday.

    Trent Boult remains at the top of the rankings with 737 rating points.
