Cape Town - The Proteas duo of Kagiso Rabada and AB de Villiers are set to lose their respective No 1 world rankings after a disappointing ICC Champions Trophy.

Rabada had gone to the top of the world bowling rankings in ODI cricket just before the tournament started while De Villiers has enjoyed an extended run atop the batting pile, but after South Africa's dismal showing in England both are set to be replaced. 

The Proteas were eliminated in the group stages when they were thrashed by eight wickets by India on Sunday. 

According to the ICC website, India's Virat Kohli moves to the top of the batting charts while Australian seamer Josh Hazlewood replaces Rabada. 

De Villiers moves down to No 3 behind David Warner, while Quinton de Kock (6th) and Faf du Plessis (7th) are the other South African batsman in the top 10. Hashim Amla has moved down to 11th. 

Rabada has slipped sown top No 4 in the bowling rankings while Imran Tahir remains second with Australian Mitchell Starc in third. 

The Proteas have, for the time being, held onto their position as the No 1 side in ODI cricket.
