Hope who scored 470 runs against both teams jumped five places to number 4 in the rankings with a career best points tally of 808 rating points. The Barbadian is behind India's Virat Kohli who leads the list with 890 while his teammate Rohit Sharma is second.  

New Zeland's Ross Taylor is third while Quinton de Kock rounds out the top five. The next best West Indian in the ranking is Shimron Hetmyer at 29, while Chris Gayle is the only other batter in the top 50 at 46.
