Tendulkar drops in one-day ranks

Naved-ul-Hasan climbed the rankings while Tendulkar dropped
Batsman Sachin Tendulkar has dropped out of the top 10 in the LG ICC Player Rankings after India's one-day series defeat to arch-rivals Pakistan.
Tendulkar hit 123 in the high-scoring fourth match of the series, which Pakistan won by three wickets.

But he was dismissed in single figures four times, and dropped 10 spots in the tightly-packed batting ratings to 13th.

Naved-ul-Hasan's 15 wickets saw him climbed 30 places to 12th, becoming the highest ranked bowler of either side.

But there was no change in the top five among the bowlers.

WoW. A drop of 10 spots after 1 series. It is true thought that he is playing poorly. I am hoping he gets back on track and scores his 35th test century.

He did score a century in this series, but he also scored four single digit scores. So it's fair enough. I'm a bit suprised to see Sarwan on number two... and Inzamam isn't even in the top ten.

I never knew Sarwan was number 2 in ODIs.. Well he does average a mammoth 47 in ODIs with 2 centuries and 15 half centuries in 79 matches. His highest score is still only 104 not out.

Yeah... but averages aren't everything.
