Afghanistan's veteran all-rounder Mohammed Nabi made history by becoming the oldest player to claim the top spot in the ICC ODI all-rounders' rankings, dethroning Shakib Al Hasan after his long reign. Nabi reached the No.1 spot following his 136 during the opening match of Afghanistan's three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka.

Nabi, aged 39 years and 1 month, surpassed Tillakaratne Dilshan's record to become the oldest player to claim the top spot in the ICC ODI all-rounders' table. Additionally, the Afghanistan star's performance in the same match, where he also secured a wicket, propelled him to seventh place in the latest ICC rankings for ODI bowlers.

Shakib's remarkable reign of 1739 days ended due to persistent injury concerns, compounded by Nabi's recent strong performances.
