Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj was replaced by South African spinner Keshav Maharaj as the world's number-one ODI bowler on Tuesday. Siraj's reign as the numero uno in ODIs lasted barely a week.

It was on November 8 that Indian Mohammed Siraj reclaimed the number one position from Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi. Since November 1, Keshav Maharaj has taken seven wickets in three matches in the World Cup, reported news agency PTI. This included a four-for versus New Zealand in Pune.

However, the difference between the two players is marginal, as they are separated by just three rating points.

Siraj is India's fifth-highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far, claiming 12 in nine fixtures, with best figures of 3/16.

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah and spinner Kuldeep Yadav are ranked fourth and fifth respectively.

While seamer Mohammad Shami is at the 12th spot in the latest rankings, spinner Ravindra Jadeja is at 19th.

Meanwhile, Shubman Gill maintains the top spot among batters
