A day after his stellar performance in the final One Day International against New Zealand, Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Monday took the top spot in the latest ODI rankings. Much to the cheers of his fans, Kohli broke batting legend Sachin Tendulkar’s record with 889 ranking points, the highest of his career. ICC, in a statement, said, “The previous highest points tally of 887 was managed by Sachin Tendulkar in 1998 and by Kohli earlier this year.” Further, Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has reached a career-best third after taking six wickets in the series against New Zealand.
Youngster Shardul Thakur made his international debut for India in the fourth ODI match against Sri Lanka wearing the famous No. 10 jersey which was once donned by Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday at Colombo. Sachin's fans were disappointed with BCCI's decision to offer Sachin's jersey no. to the speedster.

Bangladesh fans trolled Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar as he called Bangladesh's Test victory over Australia an 'upset'. Notably, Bangladesh registered a historic win over Australia on Wednesday.
