Bangladesh offspinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz has risen to second place in the ICC’s rankings for bowlers in ODIs, becoming only the third bowler from his country to be ranked in the top two in the format.

Miraz rose three spots, having returned figures of 4 for 30 and 3 for 28 in the first two ODIs against Sri Lanka.

Before Miraz, only allrounder Shakib Al Hasan and left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak have been placed inside the top two from Bangladesh, with Hasan achieving the No. 1 rank in 2009 and Razzak climbing up to No. 2 the following year.
