Yousuf Youhana enters ODI top ten

Wisden CricInfo staff

Yousuf Youhana is the biggest beneficiary of Pakistan's 5-0 defeat of Bangladesh, climbing ten places to 7th in the latest PwC one-day ratings.

Among the bowlers, Mohammad Sami (31st) and Shoaib Malik (34th) are both at career-best ratings, but the inexperience of Pakistan's one-day team is demonstrated by Abdul Razzaq, at 27th, being the highest-rated bowler in the country.

For Bangladesh, Alok Kapali has become the first batsmen to enter the one-day top 50.
