Dubai, Feb 2: Virat Kohli's poor form in the just concluded tri-series has seen him slip one spot in the latest ICC Rankings for ODI batsmen.

Kohli failed with the bat, scoring just 24 runs in 4 innings (9, 4, 3* and 8). India also disappointed as they did not win a single match in the tournament that also involved Australia and England. Hosts Australia won the title yesterday, defeating Eoin Morgan's side by 112 runs.
