The right-handed batsman has gained two slots and crossed the 800-point mark for the first time after leading India to a 2-1 ODI series victory against Sri Lanka. The 30-year-old had earlier enjoyed a career-high ranking of being on the third spot in February. He reached a personal high of 825 points after the second match in Mohali when he struck an unbeaten 208 to record his third ODI double-century. He ended the series with 816 points. 
Rohit’s opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, who was named player of the series, too, has gained one slot to reach 14th position after aggregating 168 runs including an unbeaten 100 in Visakhapatnam. Dhawan had slammed 68 in the second match, figuring in a 115-run opening stand with Sharma. Among the bowlers, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has moved up 23 places.
