Kane Williamson, Ben Stokes reach career-high ODI ranking points

"Yeah, in a heartbeat," Kane Williamson said when asked if he'd swap his Player of the Series trophy for one extra run at the end of the greatest World Cup final in history. He might have to keep that line handy again as the ICC announced another individual milestone for the New Zealand captain.

Williamson hit a career-high 799 points on the ODI batsmen's rankings after the semi-final against India and is currently at No. 6 on the table. Scoring only 30 runs against England, though, has brought his tally down to 796, but he remains one of only two New Zealanders in the top ten, Ross Taylor above him with 817 points.

Ben Stokes, the Player of the Final, rose five places to No. 20 after not one but two amazing innings - first to keep England's chase alive on a remarkably tough pitch and later to lift them in the Super Over while virtually running on empty. Jason Roy, whose power at the top helped England recover from a hiccup in the group stages of the World Cup, is in the top 10 batsmen's rankings.

There was another allrounder who made a giant leap on the batsmen's rankings too. Ravindra Jadeja, who was nearly unstoppable in the semi-final against New Zealand, has leapt 24 places to occupy the 108th spot.

Chris Woakes, whose opening spells were vital to England's title run, has gone up to No. 7 in the bowler's rankings. He took seven wickets in the first Powerplay at the World Cup - the joint second-highest - while the topper of that list, Matt Henry, also broke into the top ten. Jofra Archer, playing his first World Cup, finished not only as England's highest wicket-taker but also one of the ICC's top 30 bowlers in the world.

England remain the top-ranked team in the world, while India are at No. 2 and New Zealand at No. 3. Shakib Al Hasan, who produced the most remarkable all-round show ever seen in a World Cup, retains dominance in the allrounders' ratings.
