By Jatin Sharma -

ICC revealed their latest rankings and it has some big news for Indian fans. Though India managed to retain their no.1 ranking in Tests, their batsmen have seen some slide in their rankings. Cheteshwar Pujara, who had attained the no.2 slot in the rankings, has now slipped to no.4, while Captain Virat Kohli moved one spot down to no.5.

Australian captain Steve Smith remains the numero uno in Test rankings thanks to his century in the 4th Test at Dharamshala. The new no.2 in rankings is Kiwi captain Kane Williamson, whose brilliant century against South Africa helped him leapfrog other batsmen. Joe Root sits at no.3 and Quinton de Kock moves up to no.5 spot. David Warner has slipped down to no.9 due to his horror run against India.

Ajinkya Rahane moved up to no.14 and KL Rahul moved to no.11 thanks to his 6 fifties in seven innings. This means India has four batsmen in top 15 in the rankings.

Ravindra Jadeja stays at the top spot with 898 points in the Test bowler rankings and he is followed by Ravichandran Ashwin at no.2 with 865 points. The biggest gain came for pacer Umesh Yadav who has climbed to 21st spot. Rangana Herath, Josh Hazlewood and James Anderson retained their 3rd,4th and 5th spot in the rankings.

However, Kagiso Rabada jumped to 7th place, above the injured Dale Steyn to become the highest ranked Proteas bowler. Shakib Al Hasan remains the no.1 all-rounder, while Jadeja replaces Ashwin at the no.2 spot.
