Ravindra Jadeja back as No. 1 all-rounder in ICC Test Rankings

Written by Vishwas Gupta

Ravindra Jadeja has replaced West Indies star Jason Holder as the No. 1 all-rounder in ICC Test Rankings. Jadeja moved up one spot in the latest rankings list updated on June 23 after the conclusion of the 2-match Test series between South Africa and West Indies in St Lucia.

Ravindra Jadeja returns to the top spot after having topped both the bowling and the all-rounders’ charts in the ICC Test Rankings in 2017. Jason Holder was on top of the all-rounders’ list with 412 points but he dropped as many as 28 points after an ordinary series against South Africa at home.

Jadeja now has 386 points at the top of the all-rounders’ list, 2 more than Holder. England all-rounder Ben Stokes is third on the list while India off-spinner R Ashwin is at the 4th spot.

Jadeja is also at the 16th spot on the ICC Test Bowling Rankings while his spin partner Ashwin is second, one spot behind leader Pat Cummins.

Jadeja is currently playing in the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final versus New Zealand in Southampton. He scored 15 runs in the first innings and castled Tim Southee to end New Zealand’s first innings on 249. He is expected to play a key role for India on the Reserve Day which will decide the fate of the historic match.
