    Pakistan's ODI captain Azhar Ali has been given a one-match suspension by the ICC for his side's slow over rate during the fifth ODI against Australia in Adelaide on Sunday. Azhar will miss Pakistan's next ODI, on the tour of West Indies in April.

    Australia batsman David Warner has leapt to the top spot in the ICC ODI rankings, a result of a sensational run in the format since the start of 2016. Warner has scored 1755 runs in 28 ODIs since early last year at an average of 65 and a strike-rate of 106.94, including nine hundreds and four fifties. Warner became the No. 1 ODI batsman for the first time in his career, overtaking AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli.

    Men's cricket could return to the Commonwealth Games in 2026 if Birmingham wins the bid to be the host city.
    While women's cricket will feature in the 2022 Games in Durban, men's cricket has appeared only once. On that occasion, in Malaysia in 1998, the format was 50 overs per side (South Africa defeated Australia in the final). This time it would be played in the T20 format.
