ICC ODI Rankings | Muralitharan drops out of top 10

Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan has slipped out of the top 10 bowlers in the ICC rankings for the first time in over a decade.

Muralitharan, who skipped the series which the West Indies won 2-0, has now slipped below Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi who occupies 10th position. Muralitharan, who leads the rankings for Test bowlers, was last out of the top 10 ODI bowlers in July 1997. The iconic spinner will now have a wait for a couple of months before attempting a return when the Asia Cup gets underway in Pakistan on 24 June.
