India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni continued to top the ODI batsmen ranking while his deputy Yuvraj Singh has managed to clung on to his second position in the ICC ODI Players Ranking issued on Wednesday.
Dhoni held on to his numero uno status with 828 rating points while Yuvraj, who had achieved his career-best ranking earlier this month, has 784 points in his kitty. Australian Mike Hussey is third with 767 points.
The only other Indian to feature in top 10 is Virender Sehwag in the seventh spot, while master blaster Sachin Tendulkar is way behind in the 15th position and Gautam Gambhir in 19th place.
However, no Indian finds a place in the top 10 ODI bowlers list which is being headed by Sri Lankan Nuwan Kulasekara, followed by Kiwi Kyle Mills and spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan.
India's lone entry in the chart is pacer Zaheer Khan who is at the 16th place.
India also doesn't find a place in the ICC ODI all-rounders table, which is being led by Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh.
England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, who is retiring from Test cricket after the on-going Ashes, is at the second spot, followed by Pakistani duo of Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik.
