World Snooker Order of Merit - The updated ranking list following the 2016 World Championship

Mark Selby celebrates potting frame ball (credit:)

Mark Selby has retained his world number one status after landing his World Snooker Championship title at the Crucible.

The Leicester ace, who defeated Ding Junhui 18-14 for a second Crucible crown in the space of three attempts, consolidates his lead over 2015 World Champion Stuart Bingham at the top of the Order of Merit.

With the rankings operating on a two-year rolling system, only victory in Sheffield would have been sufficient for Selby to remain at the summit, and he duly delivered by defending the £300,000 he picked up in the 2014 event.

Selby remains only the eleventh player in snooker history to have held down the world number one ranking position.



Ding's dream run to the final sees him climb eight places to ninth, having been required to qualify for the Crucible after dropping out of the world's top 16 at the cut off for the tournament.

Runs to the Semi-Final for Marco Fu and Alan McManus see them climb to 12th and 20th respectively, with the latter enjoying his best World Championship campaign for 23 years.

Judd Trump now occupies the world number three slot after winning the China Open in early April, while Ronnie O'Sullivan's second round exit sees him drop to tenth.

Kyren Wilson, who picked up his maiden ranking title at last September's Shanghai Masters, enjoyed a superb run to the Quarter-Finals in Sheffield to move him into the elite top 16 for the first time.

Stephen Maguire subsequently drops out of the top 16, as does Welsh ace Michael White - with both suffering first round defeats in the sport's show-piece.

Other notable movers include Sam Baird, who climbs to 46th, and Scotland's Anthony McGill, whose second Crucible campaign lifts him to 28th.

Players relegated from the tour after the 2015/16 season include Malta's Tony Drago, China's Cao Yupeng, Ireland's David Morris and youngsters Michael Wasley and Joel Walker.
