AB de Viliers battles for no.1 batsman

South African cricket captain AB de Villiers is battling for the number one ODI batsmen against India's Virat Kohli.

Upcoming fixtures offer both players an opportunity to either retain or reclaim the top spot on the ICC player rankings.

Only eight rating points separate the No.1 ranked Kohli from de Villiers.

India plays the West Indies in a three-match series from November 21 in Kochi and South Africa plays host to Pakistan in a three-match series from November 24.

This means both Kohli and de Villiers can potentially make the most of the home conditions in their quest.

Kohli replaced Hashim Amla as the top batsman earlier in November.
