    England and Zimbabwe cricketers surge in the latest ICC Menís Test Player Rankings

    England and Zimbabwe cricketers have surged in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Menís Test Player Rankings, which were released on Saturday morning and incorporates player performances from the Galle and Sylhet Tests.

    The England duo of Keaton Jennings and Ben Foakes are the biggest gainers in the batting chart.

    Jennings, who scored 46 and 146 not out in his sideís 211-run victory over Sri Lanka, has vaulted 41 places to claim 46th position, while Foakes has entered the rankings in 69th spot following his 107 and 37, that also earned him the Player of the Match award.

    Sam Curran and Ben Stokes have also made upward movements among batters. Curran has moved up nine places to a career-high 35th position following his 48 in the first innings, while Stokes has moved up three places to 28th after scoring seven and 62.

    In the bowling table, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid have headed in the right direction. Aliís eight for 137 in the match has moved him up four places to 27th, while Rashidís three wickets have lifted him three places to 41st.

    The biggest mover in the latest bowling table from the Galle Test was Dilruwan Perera, who has returned to the top-20 in 19th position after jumping five places following his figures of five for 75 and two for 94.

    Sri Lankaís left-arm spinner Rangana Herath has retired in eighth position after slipping one place. He took one for 78 and two for 59. Herath finished his career with 433 wickets in 93 Tests.

    A number of Zimbabwe cricketers, led by captain Hamilton Masakadza, have been rewarded for their outstanding performances in the Sylhet Test in which they beat Bangladesh by 151 runs.

    Masakadza, who has now become the longest-serving Test cricketer with the retirement of Herath, scored 52 and 48 and, as such, he earned a gain of 12 places to claim 34th position in the batting table. Sean Williams, who was declared Player of the Match for his 88 and 20, has risen 17 places to 77th position. Peter Moor is the other notable mover, gaining six places to sit in 86th position following his contribution of 63 not out in the first innings.

    In the bowlersí list, fast bowler Kyle Jarvis has achieved a career-high ranking of 60th after his three wickets lifted him 13 places, while Sikandar Raza has gained five places and is now on a career-best 70th spot following his six wickets. Brandon Mavutaís four wickets in the second innings have helped him enter the rankings in 81st position.

    The only consolation for Bangladesh was the gains made by Taijul Islam, who has leaped five places to 31st position. Taijul had figures of six for 108 and five for 62.

    Virat Kohli of India leads the batting chart, while Englandís James Anderson is the number-one ranked Test bowler.

    There was a fair bit of movement on both the batsmen’s and bowlers’ charts following the Test matches in Sylhet and Galle.

    It happens rarely, teams coming from far away and winning Test matches – quite comfortably at that – in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. That’s what Zimbabwe and England have just done, beating Bangladesh and Sri Lanka respectively in their first Test contests.

    Taijul Islam was Bangladesh's best performer, picking up 11 wickets in the Test Taijul Islam was Bangladesh's best performer, picking up 11 wickets in the Test

    Rangana Herath, the iconic Sri Lankan left-arm spinner, finished his international career in Galle, and didn’t have one of his great outings. He picked up just three wickets over two innings, and that saw him slip from No.7 to No.8 in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for bowlers.

    Returning to Sylhet, for the Test match that finished first, at the end of Zimbabwe’s 151-run win over Bangladesh, the noteworthy performers from Zimbabwe were rewarded.

    Hamilton Masakadza, the Zimbabwe captain, hit 52 and 48 on a tough pitch, and that helped him gain 12 spots to move up to No.34 with a career-high 568 points, while the other batting star for the team, Sean Williams, who scored 88 and 20, also earned a career-high 429 points and got to a career-best No.77, a jump of 17 places.

    From Bangladesh’s point of view, the standout performer was Taijul Islam, the left-arm spinner, who had 11 wickets in the match. Islam’s feat took him up five positions to No.31, his best ever, with a career-high points tally of 569.

    Across in Galle, where England won by 211 runs, Keaton Jennings and Ben Foakes were the big performers with the bat and Moeen Ali and Jack Leach with the ball.

    Jennings, who scored 46 and 146* jumped a remarkable 41 places to No.46 with 518 points – his best ever, while Foakes, a centurion in his first Test innings, entered the rankings at No.69.

    Ali moved up four places to No.27 after picking up eight wickets in the game, while Leach achieved a career-best ranking of No.74 – up 38 spots – with career-best points after returning five wickets in the game.

    For Sri Lanka, the only player with a performance of note was off-spinner Dilruwan Perera, who picked up seven wickets in the game. He gained five spots to be joint No.19 with Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan.
