DUBAI: India’s left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja has lost his top spot after sliding a place to be at the second position in the ICC Test bowlers rankings, released on Sunday.
Jadeja’s teammate Ravichandran Ashwin, meanwhile, retained his third spot in the table, which is now headed by England pacer James Anderson.
Anderson has climbed to the top of the chart, owing to his superb effort in the third and final Test at Lord’s, which England won by nine wickets to seal the series 2-1 over the West Indies.
In the batsmen’s list, Cheteshwar Pujara continues to be the top-ranked Indian at No. 4, followed by captain Virat Kohli at No.6.
Both K L Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane climbed up the ladder by a place each to be at ninth and 10th positions, respectively.
Australia’s Steve Smith continues to be the No. 1 batsman in the rankings chart.
In the all-rounders table, spin duo Jadeja and Ashwin have retained their second and third places respectively.
