With 15 wickets from the New Zealand series, Mishra was also selected as the Man of the Series, who had shared the 12th place in the bowlers rankings with South African Dale Steyn.
Other Indian bowlers who have progressed in the bowling chart include fast bowler Umesh Yadav and young player Jaspreet Bumrah. In the series, Yadav's eight wickets brought him to 35th place, while Bumrahah climbed 29 places to earn the career-best 57th position.
New Zealand fast bowler Trent Boult continued to lead the bowlers 'rankings, followed by West Indies' Sunil Narine and South African Imran Tahir in third place.
While Indian bowlers have enjoyed an increase in their shares, the matter is not so with their batsmen. India's openers Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane are in ninth place and 20th in both places. Although with 358 runs, leading batsman Virat Kohli has remained second behind AB de Villiers, he has cut South Africa's lead by 48 to 13 points.
In addition, India, led by MS Dhoni, has reduced its three digit gap with New Zealand to just one point after winning the series 3-2, but retained at the third and fourth positions, respectively. Australia remains the leading ODI team after South Africa with 118 points.
