World Snooker rankings: The updated Order of Merit following the 2017 Players Championship

Day makes a timely return to the top 16 (credit:)

Judd Trump has climbed to second in the world rankings following his victory at the Players Championship, while Ryan Day has returned to the top 16 at the expense of Joe Perry.

Trump continued his rich vein of form by reaching his fifth ranking event final of the season and capturing a second title at Venue Cymru - beating Marco Fu 10-8 in the final to claim the top prize of £125,000.

The Ace moves up to second behind runaway number one Mark Selby on the Order of Merit as a result and displaces Stuart Bingham, who drops to third following his first-round exit at the hands of Anthony Hamilton.

That victory means that German Masters champion Hamilton is now up to 25th in the latest revision of the world rankings, as he continues his resurgence having almost fell off the tour just 12 months ago.

Two years on from his victory at the Players Championship, Perry has fallen out of the top 16 after failing to qualify for the 2017 event, and now needs to reach at least the Semi-Finals of the upcoming China Open to displace Day before the seeding cut-off point for the Crucible.

Elsewhere, Ding Junhui climbs to fourth after reaching the semi-finals in Llandudno with Gibraltar Open winner Shaun Murphy up to fifth, while John Higgins drops a place to sixth after his first-round exit in Wales.

Fu goes eighth after his run to the final - moving above Neil Robertson, who falls to ninth - as Ali Carter climbs back into the top 10 following his venture to the Last Four and could rise to seventh by going all the way in Beijing later this month.

Meanwhile, two-time World champion Mark Williams has dropped to 22nd and needs to win the China Open at the start of April to have any chance of being seeded straight through in Sheffield.
