The 22-year-old from Madhya Pradesh, who had clinched the National championship and also reached the finals of Hong Kong Super Series last year, now has 40,462 points. The best-placed Indian men's shuttler is Ajay Jayaram at the 19th spot while H S Prannoy is at the 21st spot after improving two places.

Saina Nehwal, who clinched the Malaysia Masters to start the season on a wining note, slipped a place to stay at the 10th place, while PV Sindhu is static at the fifth spot in women's singles ranking.

Mixed doubles combination of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy were placed at the 13th spot, while Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy were at the 23rd spot after gaining a place in men's doubles.

Sameer has been in terrific form lately and a good All England Open campaign will allow him to make his name in the top 10 of the BWF men's ranking.
