South Africa batsman AB de Villiers has once again grabbed the top position in the International Cricket Council rankings for ODI batsmen. An astonishing knock of 176 by AB de Villiers in the second ODI against Bangladesh in Paarl, which consisted of 15 fours and seven sixes and came off only 104 balls, has also helped South Africa edge India at the top of the ICC ODI Team Rankings by taking a 2-0 winning lead in the three-match series. De Villiers, who has leapfrogged Australian David Warner and India captain Virat Kohli, had first attained top position on 30 May 2010 and the number of days he has spent at the top is second most after retired Windies great Vivian Richards. De Villiers has now been at the top for 2,124 days while Richards was number one for 2,306 days. (Video: Cricket South Africa)
