Sri Lanka fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera has moved up by 27 places to get to a best-ever 33rd spot in the ODI bowlers' rankings after his career-best 5 for 16 in the third ODI against Bangladesh in Dhaka. That capped a fine tour for Chameera, who topped the wicket-takers' list with nine strikes at an average of 11.00, even though Sri Lanka went down 2-1.
New Sri Lanka limited-overs captain Kusal Perera, who scored his sixth ODI century in the same match, advanced by 13 spots to 42nd in the batters' list. That's just one spot away from his career-best of 41, achieved in June 2016.
Dhananjaya de Silva was another Sri Lankan to gain, after hitting 55 in the final ODI. He moved up by ten spots to 85th in the batters' list. He gained two spots in the bowling table too, to No. 79, and seven spots to No. 24 among allrounders.
It wasn't a great day for Bangladesh, who finished on 189 after Sri Lanka had put up 286 for 6, but their half-centuries meant that Mosaddek Hossain and Mahmudullah moved up in the batters' table. Hossain scored 51 in 72 balls from No. 5, and that took him 12 spots up to No. 113, while Mahmudullah's 63-ball 53 from No. 6 lifted him two slots to 36th.
Taskin Ahmed, who kept the Sri Lanka batters in check with returns of 4 for 46, progressed 12 places to No. 88 among bowlers.
The 2-1 scoreline put Bangladesh on top of the World Cup Super League table, with 50 points from nine matches, while Sri Lanka have recorded only one win in six outings and are way down.
