India's explosive wicket keeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni slipped one place to the joint fourth place and Irfan Pathan moved up one place to fourth among all-rounders, even as India retained the fourth place in team rankings in the latest ICC ODI listings.
Dhoni's previous third position was taken by South Africa captain Graeme Smith, who moved up four places following his brilliant run in the current five-match ODI series against Australia at home.
Yuvraj Singh (9th) and Rahul Dravid (10th) retain their places, while Sachin Tendulkar gained two places to move up to 15th, in the Aussie dominated batsmen's list.
Following his 64 against the Proteas in the third ODI on Sunday, Ponting swapped places with his vice-captain Adam Gilchrist at the top of the table, with Andrew Symonds (6th), Mike Hussey (7th) and Michael Clarke (8th) following him.
Meanwhile, former South Africa captain Shaun Pollock tops both the bowling and all-rounder lists, riding on his 2-45 and 69 from 74 balls against Australia at Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
Pollock was already in top of the bowling chart, maintaining that position ahead of Glenn McGrath, but he now has also overtaken England's Andrew Flintoff in the all-rounder list, which has India's Irfan Pathan in the fourth place just behind Andrew Symonds of Australia.
Australian old warhorse McGrath is in second place in the bowling lists while team-mate Brett Lee is in third and Kiwis Shane Bond and Daniel Vettori are fourth and fifth.
