Amir lost 595 points for not playing for 6 years. He was no 8 in the bowling rankings with 658 and when he came back it was down at 86th with 63 points

I wouldn't pick any of the top 10 over Buttler.

I agree.

We are blessed to have one of the best 5 all rounders in the world though aren't we?

Doesn't Buttler not being in the top 10 batsmen make you doubt the validity of these rankings ?

I think that the ODI rankings are probably more misleading than the test ones, because the ODI game has been changing very fast in recent years (largely under the influence of T20) and yet the rankings are based on performance over quite a long period of time.

Is there anyone in the top 10 who doesn't bat top 4? Root obtained his ranking largely batting at 3, I think Taylor is the only one who bats below that. Far easier in ODI's for batsmen to score big runs batting at the top of the innings. It is hard for Buttler to make a real game changing innings unless those above him (like yesterday) have all failed.

A 40 ball 50 coming in at 6 should have the same credibility as a 90 ball ton at the top, but I bet it doesn't.
