India’s best seamer, Jasprit Bumrah, enjoyed a significant climb in his ICC rankings after another outstanding performance against Sri Lanka. Bumrah, who was previously ranked tenth, has surged six places to fourth. In the Day/Night Test in Bengaluru, which India won by 238 runs, Bumrah took a total of eight wickets. In the Test rankings for bowlers, he surpassed Shaheen Afridi, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, James Anderson, Neil Wagner, and Josh Hazlewood. Captain Rohit Sharma, who had a poor series against Sri Lanka, scoring only 90 runs in two Tests, remained in sixth place in the batting rankings, the highest-placed Indian.

Rishabh Pant, the Player of the Series, remains in 10th place. Virat Kohli, on the other side, has slipped four places and is currently ranked ninth. Kohli scored 45 in the first Test against Pakistan in Mohali, then 23 and 13 in the second. Since his 136 against Bangladesh in November 2019, he has been unable to hit a century. Ravindra Jadeja, who scored the most runs and took ten wickets, lost his spot as the top-ranked all-rounder. Jason Holder of the West Indies has recovered the top place in the all-rounder rankings. Shreyas lyer’s match-winning 92 and 67 against Sri Lanka were rewarded with a 40-place jump in the batting rankings, putting him in 37th place overall. After a valiant 107 in the innings in Bangalore, Sri Lanka Test skipper Dimuth Karunaratne climbed to a career-high No 3 position. In the all-rounders’ ranking, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shakib Al Hasan, and Ben Stokes rounded out the top five.

Mohammed Shami moved up a notch in the bowlers’ rankings, displacing fellow countryman Ravindra Jadeja to 17th. Pat Cummins, R Ashwin, and Kagiso Rabada are the top three bowlers in the world.
