India’s Ravindra Jadeja reclaimed the top spot from West Indies’ Jason Holder in the latest ICC Test rankings for all-rounders released on Wednesday. Jadeja had risen to No. 1 after his 175 not out and nine wickets in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Mohali earlier this month. However, he had lost the place to Holder last week. But the two players have once again interchanged places with Jadeja back on top with 385 rating points. Jadeja’s compatriot Ravichandran Ashwin held on to his third place among all-rounders and continued to be second in the bowlers’ chart.
Indian pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, who had jumped six spots last week, remained static on fourth in the bowling list.
India skipper Rohit Sharma, the country’s top-ranked batter, fell a spot down to seventh in the latest Test rankings for batters.
Meanwhile, former India skipper Virat Kohli and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant remained static on the ninth and 10th places respectively.
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam, who was at his glorious best against Australia during the second Test of the series in Karachi, gained three spots to move up to No.5 in the rankings chart.
Other star performers with the bat from the same match – Mohammad Rizwan and Usman Khawaja – have also taken a massive leap.
Rizwan has moved up six spots, to be joint No.11 alongside David Warner after his unbeaten knock of 104 in the second innings. Khawaja, who scored 160 and 44* in Karachi, moved up eleven spots to No. 13.
