Mumbai: India skipper Virat Kohli and K.L. Rahul, who starred with the bat in the just-concluded T20I series against West Indies which the hosts won 2-1, have moved upwards in the ICC Rankings for batsmen.

In the latest rankings released on Thursday, Rahul has jumped by three spots to number six while Kohli has made a jump of five spots to enter the top 10.
