Glenn Maxwell's recent return to form has paid off handsomely in the updated ODI rankings, with the enigmatic allrounder jumping into 17th position among the world's best 50-over batsmen.
Maxwell moved 19 places after his superb 95 in yesterday's Carlton ODI Tri-Series final, an innings that negotiated Australia out of control and into a position of dominance that they never relinquished.
Incumbent No.3 Steve Smith has also made a considerable leap on the same list, moving 16 places into 30th spot after his third ODI century - against England in Hobart - and scores of 37, 40 and 47 throughout the tri-series.
Allrounder James Faulkner climbed 14 places into a career-high 21st position after his stunning unbeaten 50 from just 24 balls against England in the final, although the Tasmanian is currently awaiting an update on a side injury that resulted in him leaving the field.

Among the bowlers, Mitchell Starc's Player-of-the-Series effort has been rewarded with a shift of five places, up to No.7 in the world - making him the second-highest-ranked Australian bowler behind fellow left-arm quick Mitchell Johnson.
Following their unbeaten tri-series triumph, Australia will begin the ICC World Cup as the world's No.1 ODI team, having moved six points clear of India at the top of the tree.
