Trott makes his move
Jonathan Trott has climbed into the upper echelons of the International Cricket Council one-day rankings on the back of a splendid tour of Australia.
England may have lost the Commonwealth Bank Series 6-1, but Trott followed up his fine Ashes campaign by scoring 375 runs at an average of 62.50 in the seven-match series.
His tally - unsurpassed by any player on either side - included 102 in England’s win at Adelaide and a stunning 137 in a losing cause in the penultimate match at Sydney.
He now averages 53.62 after 18 ODIs, and his reward is a jump of 23 places to a career-best 19th in the ICC batting rankings.
Hashim Amla tops the standings ahead of South Africa team-mate AB de Villiers and India’s Virat Kohli.
Daniel Vettori remains the leading one-day bowler in the world, according to the statistics, with Morne Morkel rising to second on the back of an impressive series against India. Bangladesh’s Abdur Razzaq sits third.
England’s Paul Collingwood, meanwhile, has moved into fifth position in the all-rounder rankings after ending the Commonwealth Bank Series as the most economical bowler on either side.
He conceded just 3.32 runs an over - no other bowler managed an economy rate of less than four - as well as taking four wickets in 25 overs.
Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan remains top of the all-rounder's pile.
