Sri Lanka fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera and captain Kusal Perera have made considerable gains in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings weekly update.

Sri Lanka fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera and captain Kusal Perera have made considerable gains in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings after starring in a 97-run victory over Bangladesh in the final match of their ICC Men’s cricket World Cup Super League series.

Chameera’s career-best haul of five for 16, which won him the Player of the Match award, has also helped him advance 27 slots to a career-best 33rd position.

The 29-year-old had started the series in 72nd position and moved up last week with a three-wicket haul in the second match.

Perera’s sixth ODI century has lifted him 13 places to 42nd place in the weekly update to the men’s rankings, which is carried out on Wednesdays.—AFP
