India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is all set to lose his numero uno status in the ICC rankings for ODI batsmen after deciding to skip the triangular series in Zimbabwe starting on Friday.

A player loses half a per cent of his ratings points for every ODI missed and Dhoni, who currently leads Michael Hussey by just eight rating points, will slip behind the Australian when the rankings are released after the Zimbabwe tri-series.

Dhoni had regained the top spot from Hussey in February after the Australian scored 23 against New Zealand in the fourth ODI and didn’t play in the fifth.

Sachin Tendulkar (fourth), Kumar Sangakkara (10th), Virender Sehwag (11th), Yuvraj Singh (14th), Gautam Gambhir (23rd) and Mahela Jayawardena (29th) are all likely to slip in the rankings after opting out of the May 28-June 9 series.

India and Sri Lanka have rested their top players for the low-profile Zimbabwe tri-series and it will give a chance to the players who have gone for the tour to increase their ranking.

Stand-in captains Tillakaratne Dilshan (13th) of Sri Lanka and India’s Suresh Raina (16th) along with Virat Kohli (21st) will get good opportunities to move up the table.
