    Default Hussey replaces Dhoni as number-one ODI batsman

    Hussey replaces Dhoni as number-one ODI batsman

    Australia's Michael Hussey has replaced India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the top of the Reliance Mobile ICC Player Rankings for ODI batsmen after an outstanding series against Pakistan which concluded on Sunday.

    Hussey scored 220 runs at an average of 73.33 which not only helped Australia make a clean sweep of the five-match series but also put him ahead of Dhoni in the latest rankings which were released on Monday.

    Hussey had started the series trailing Dhoni by 21 points and he now leads the Indian captain by three points with a chance to extend the advantage when he and Australia takes on the West Indies in a five-match ODI series which starts in Melbourne on February 7.

    The 34-year-old Western Australian had first occupied the top spot after the ODI against the West Indies in Kuala Lumpur in September 2006 before slipping down the order during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 in the West Indies.

    In contrast, it is the first time since January 2009 that Dhoni has conceded his top spot which he had first achieved in Jamshedpur in April 2006. However, Dhoni too will have an opportunity to regain the coveted number-one position when he leads India in the three-match ODI series against South Africa which starts in Jaipur from February 21.

    Besides Hussey, Australia vice-captain Michael Clarke has also gained two places and has jumped from 18th position to 16th spot after scoring 173 runs in the series.

    ICC ODI Championship as of 1 February 2010:
    Rank Team Rating
    1 Australia 133
    2 India 121
    3 South Africa 119
    4 New Zealand 112
    5 England 109
    6 Sri Lanka 108
    7 Pakistan 104
    8 West Indies 76
    9 Bangladesh 55
    10 Zimbabwe 26
    11 Ireland 25
    12 Kenya 2

    Ranking has become so important....infact sometimes more important than the match itself....
