Former Afghanistan captain Mohammad Nabi has ended Bangladesh's skipper Shakib Al Hasan's reins on top of the ICC ODI All-Rounders Rankings after clinching the number one spot in the latest update. 

Nabi, who attained No.1 rankings in the ICC T20I All-Rounders list earlier, dethroned Hasan, who ruled the charts for 1,739 days (since 7 May 2019), to become the oldest player ever to gain a top rank in the all-rounder's category.

The 39-year-old struck an excellent 136 against Sri Lanka, assisting Azmatullah Omarzai play one of his finest knocks in the first ODI at Pallekele, which Afghanistan lost by 42 runs.

In 158 ODIs, Nabi has slammed 3,345 runs with two centuries, and 16 half-centuries, apart from clinching 136 wickets. 

Notably, Nabi is the third Afghan player to top an ICC Ranking chart after Rashid Khan (ODI and T20I Bowlers, and ODI All-Rounder), and Mujeeb Ur Rahman (T20I Bowling).

The top five ODI All-Rounder Rankings consists of Nabi, Hasan, Zimbabwe's Sikandar Raza, Rashid, and Papua New Guinea's Assad Vala. 

Hasan, in totality remained No.1 ranked ODI All-Rounder for 4,279 days, which is equal to 11 and a half years, only ahead of former India captain Kapil Dev, who had two stints in the top position for 1,379 and 1,375 days. 

Nabi is currently in action in the third and final ongoing ODI at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, which hosts Sri Lanka lead 2-0. Both teams played a one-off Test prior to the ODIs, and will feature in a three-match T20Is from February 17.
