Default Dhoni stays atop ODI batting chart, Yuvraj at six

Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni [Images] extended his stay at the top of the ICC [Images] ODI Rankings for the batsmen, which has his flamboyant teammate Yuvraj Singh [Images] at the number six position.
According to the latest chart issued today, Dhoni has 779 points and is closely followed by Australian Mike Hussey [Images], who is just three points adrift of the Jharkhand marauder.
Yuvraj has 744 rating points for his sixth place and the next best Indian in the ranking chart is Sachin Tendulkar [Images], who stands 12th with 708 points.
Among the Indian bowlers, paceman Zaheer Khan [Images] (660) and spin spearhead Harbhajan Singh [Images] (617) feature in top 20 at 11th and 20th positions respectively.
India (119) remains third in the ODI ranking for the teams, behind table-toppers Australia [Images] (131) and South Africa [Images] (119).
Meanwhile, New Zealand [Images] can now rise to the fourth place but could slip to as low as eighth, depending on the outcome of their five-match series against West Indies [Images].
Daniel Vettori's [Images] side currently sits in fifth place on 113 ratings points and a 5-0 series win will put it ahead of Pakistan in fourth place on 118 points.
However, a reversal would mean Kiwis conceding 11 ratings points to the West Indies. This will put both the teams level on 102 ratings points but Chris Gayle's [Images] side will be placed higher than the Black Caps in seventh place when ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point.
