Vettori slips off top of one day bowling rankings

7:06 am on 16 January 2009

The Black Caps captain Daniel Vettori has lost his place at the top of international cricket's one day bowling rankings only days after he reclaimed the title.

Australian paceman Nathan Bracken hasn't had to bowl a ball to take back the number one spot as Vettori paid the price for a wicketless outing in the final one-dayer against the West Indies in their recently completed series.

Jacob Oram remains the world's leading allrounder despite injury ruling him out for most of the series against the Windies.
