    ICC Teams and Player Rankings watch for 2020

    Australia batsman Marnus Labuschagne has grabbed a career-best third place in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after a match-winning double-century against New Zealand in Sydney.

    The 25-year-old has moved up one slot after scores of 215 and 59 that not only made him the ‘player of the match’ but also helped him clinch the ‘player of the series’ award. He was the highest scorer in the series with 549 runs, while his five previous Tests that include two at home against Pakistan, have seen him amass 896 runs.

    Labuschagne was ranked 110th at the beginning of last year but is now only behind India captain Virat Kohli and compatriot Steve Smith. There are now three Australia batsmen in the top five with opener David Warner gaining two slots after scoring 297 runs in the series.

    Meanwhile, Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc has equaled his career-best fifth position that he previously achieved in March 2018. He finished with 15 wickets in the series that included four in Sydney. Spinner Nathan Lyon’s 10-wicket haul has helped him advance five places to joint-14th.

    For New Zealand, all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme has been a notable gainer. He has moved from 47th to 39th among batsmen and from 36th to 34th among bowlers. Matt Henry has moved up three places to 66th among bowlers.

    England all-rounder Ben Stokes, ‘player of the match’ in Cape Town, has made it into the top 10 for batsmen for the second time in his career after scores of 47 and 72. He has moved from 15th to 10th, while his best was ninth, achieved in November last year. He has also caught up with compatriot Moeen Ali at 27th place among bowlers.

    Dom Sibley’s maiden Test century has lifted him 87 places to 80th while fast bowler James Anderson’s record 28th five-wicket haul in the first innings sees him back in the top 10 for bowlers.

    Opener Dean Elgar (up three places to 19th) and Aiden Markram (up one place to 22nd) among batsmen and Anrich Nortje (up 34 places to 62nd) are the notable gainers for South Africa.

    Sri Lanka’s Angelo Mathews is back among the top 20 batsmen in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after helping his side win by 10 wickets in Harare to take a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series against Zimbabwe.

    Pope advances 52 places; Stokes, Broad, Raza also move up in latest rankings update

    In the latest rankings update that also includes the Port Elizabeth Test, which England won by an innings and 53 runs to go 2-1 ahead in the four-Test series, Mathews has advanced eight places to reach 16th position after his unbeaten 200 in Harare.

    The former Sri Lanka captain’s best ranking was third, achieved in August 2014, while he has also been among the top 10 among batsmen in ODIs.

    Other Sri Lanka batsmen to progress in the rankings are Kusal Mendis (30th to 26th) and Dhananjaya de Silva (39th to 37th) while Suranga Lakmal (26th to 22nd) and Lahiru Kumara (32nd to 30th) have moved up the list for bowlers.

    Ben Stokes has equaled his career-best second ranking among all-rounders after his knock of 120. He has moved back to the spot he had occupied in August last year while he is presently ranked 10th among batsmen and 29th among bowlers.

    Off-spinner Dominic Bess’s five-wicket haul in the first innings has lifted him 49 places to 62nd, while Curran, Jack Leach and Stuart Broad have gained one slot each in the bowlers’ list.

    England’s Mark Wood and South Africa’s Quinton de Kock have made notable gains in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after the final Test in Johannesburg, which England won by 191 runs to take the series 3-1.
    Sikandar Raza, Kusal Mendis among others to move up in latest update

    Philander retires as fifth-ranked all-rounder after a career which saw him reach top position among bowlers and all-rounders
    Wood, who was adjudged Player of the Match at Wanderers, has moved up 19 places to 38th position among bowlers after his haul of nine for 100. He has also progressed to 142nd from 151st among batsmen after scores of 35 not out and 18 in his 15th Test.

    England batsmen Ollie Pope (up six places to 55th) and Dom Sibley (up nine places to 67th) are among others to advance in the latest update, which also takes into account the drawn Harare Test featuring Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. Ben Stokes has gained two slots to reach 27th among bowlers.

    For South Africa, Quinton de Kock has moved back towards the top 10 for batsmen after scores of 76 and 39, advancing two places to reach 11th place. His teammate Anrich Nortje has gained 20 places to reach 53rd position among bowlers.

    Meanwhile, South Africa’s Vernon Philander has retired as the fifth-ranked all-rounder and 11th among bowlers after a decade-long career that saw him topping both these lists.

    He spent 11 Tests as the top-ranked Test bowler between December 2013 and February 2014. He took over from Dale Steyn after taking four for 61 and three for 68 against India at Johannesburg in December 2013. That performance took him to 912 points, which is the joint-seventh best of all time, and the best ever for South Africa.

    In Harare, Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza’s Player of the Match effort has helped him advance in the rankings. His eight wickets, which included a seven-wicket haul in the first innings, have lifted him 21 places to 51st among bowlers. Knocks of 72 and 34 see him progress to 57th among batsmen. Brendan Taylor has moved up to 22nd and Sean Williams to 61st.

    Kusal Mendis’s fighting 116 has taken him to 23rd position from 26th before the match.

    Currently India #1 in Tests, #2 in ODIs and #4 in T20s.
    Truly commendable from kohli and team.

    Hope ODI points difference with England will be decreased with new Zealand and South Africa series win.

    After IPL we have
    June - July - 3 ODIs in Sri Lanka
    July - August - 3 ODIs in Zimbabwe
    October - 3 ODIs home series with England.

    By this time, India should be #1 in ODIs if we defeat England in India. Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe should be cake walk for us.

    Coming to T20s,

    June - July - 3 T20s in Sri Lanka. ( Easy win)
    September - Asia cup ( ODIs changed to T20 matches by Pakistan )
    October - 3 T20 home series with England.
    October: 3 T20 Away series in Australia
    October-November: ICC World Twenty20

    T20 games are always upsets. Very tough to predict. Indians are stronger to win against Sri Lanka away series and Asia cup.
    Pakistan is in danger of losing #1 position in T20s. Only one point difference with Australia.

    Win of T20 world Cup by India will sure gets #1 position.

    Hope this year happy to see India in #1 in both ODIs and T20s. Anyway In tests we are unreachable.

    On merit we are no#1 in t20. Defeated England in England, absolutely decimated NZ in NZ. While the present no 1 ranked team got destroyed by SL at home. Current T20 teams ranking is a joke.

    We earned 5 points against New Zealand t20 win.

    Regarding Pakistan losing SL is because batsmen were not able to play Spin.

    This year T20 is taken seriously because of world Cup in Oct - November.

    England captain Eoin Morgan and South Africa left-arm wristspinner Tabraiz Shamsi have entered the top 10 T20I Rankings for batsmen and bowlers respectively, after their superlative performances in the three-match series between the two sides.

    Morgan scored 136 runs from three innings at a strike-rate of 170 and was the only batsman to register two fifty-plus scores in the series. He went past India captain Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma to claim the ninth position in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Batting Rankings. Quinton de Kock, Morgan's opposite number, climbed as many as 10 spots to occupy the 16th position, after having registered scores of 31, 65 and 35.

    Temba Bavuma, de Kock's opening partner, rose a staggering 127 spots to take the 52nd position, after aggregating 123 runs from three innings at a strike-rate of 153.75. Jonny Bairstow and Rassie Van der Dussen, too, jumped up 15 and and 21 spots respectively to claim their career-best ratings and occupy the 23rd and 37th position respectively. Dawid Malan dropped down a position but is still England's best-ranked batsman, occupying the sixth position in the standings.

    As for the bowlers, Tabraiz Shamsi broke into the top 10, climbing up nine positions to occupy the eighth spot, while Adil Rashid replaced Andile Phehlukwayo in the sixth position. Tom Curran, who bagged five wickets and bowled the decisive last over in the second T20I to give his side a two-run victory, rose 28 spots to break into the top 30.

    Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi currently occupy the top position among bowlers and all-rounders respectively in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I RankingsRashid Khan (left) and Mohammad Nabi currently occupy the top position among bowlers and all-rounders respectively in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Rankings
    As for the all-rounders, Dwaine Pretorius was the only notable gainer, climbing up 39 spots to take the 46th position, while Ben Stokes achieved a career-high rating to take the 30th spot.

    Babar Azam is currently the top-ranked batsman, followed by KL Rahul and Australia captain Aaron Finch, while the bowling and the all-rounders charts are led by Afghanistan's Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi respectively.

    England have retained their third position in the team rankings and their series win has taken them within two points of second-placed Australia.

    Smith back as top-ranked Test batsman

    Australia’s Steve Smith is back on top of the list of batsmen in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after India captain Virat Kohli could manage only 21 runs in his two innings in the first Test against New Zealand in Wellington, which his side lost by 10 wickets to concede a 1-0 lead in the two-match series.

    This is the eighth time that Smith is on top of the rankings after first occupying the top position in June 2015. The last batsman apart from Smith and Kohli to be No. 1 is New Zealand’s Kane Williamson, for an eight-day period in December 2015.

    In the latest update, that also includes the one-off Test between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in Mirpur, which the home side won by an innings and 106 runs, Williamson has gained 31 points after his innings of 89 due to the low team scores in the match and the highly-rated India attack, facts considered in the calculation of rating points. India opener Mayank Agarwal is back at a career-best 10th position with his highest aggregate points tally.

    New Zealand’s Ross Taylor and Colin Grandhomme have moved up the batsmen’s list while fast bowlers Tim Southee and Trent Boult have made big gains after finishing with nine and five wickets, respectively. Southee has advanced eight spots to take sixth position, which is his highest since a career-best fifth place in June 2014. Boult has moved up four slots to take joint-13th position.

    Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim has risen five places to return to the top 20 after his double-century in Mirpur while captain Mominul Haque has moved up five places to 39th after a score of 132. Nayeem Hasan is the big news for the team with his nine wickets lifting him 29 places to 38th position among bowlers. Abu Jayed has moved up 11 places to 46th.

    Craig Ervine top-scored in both innings for Zimbabwe to progress 15 places. He is one place behind his best of 41st achieved in July 2017.

    In the ICC World Test Championship, New Zealand are on 120 points after gaining 60 points for the Wellington victory. They had won 60 points in a 1-1 draw against Sri Lanka while this is the first match that top-placed India have lost.

    Blundell, Jamieson gain big in ICC rankings after successful India series

    New Zealand opener Tom Blundell and his Indian counterpart Prithvi Shaw and debutant paceman Kyle Jamieson were among the biggest movers in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Test player rankings, released on Tuesday, 3 March.

    Blundell had a successful series against India, scoring 117 runs in four innings, with one half-century, which put him among the top two run-scorers in the series. The performance meant he was rewarded with a jump of 27 places to No.46. Shaw, who returned for his first series since his Test debut against West Indies in 2018, and made a punchy 54 in the first innings of the Christchurch Test, rose 17 places to No.76.

    There were few changes elsewhere. Australia’s Steve Smith retained his top spot, holding a 25-point advantage over Virat Kohli. Smith’s apprentice Marnus Labuschagne jumped one spot to round off the top three, taking the place of New Zealand captain Kane Williamson. England all-rounder Ben Stokes and India opener Mayank Agarwal moved a spot each and swapped places to break into and fall out of the top 10 respectively.

    Among bowlers, Tim Southee’s Player of the Series winning performance against India took him into the top five, with a jump of two places to No.4, while Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult returned to the top 10, gaining four places each to occupy the seventh and ninth positions respectively. But the biggest gainer was Jamieson, who rose from No.80 to 43.

    There was only one change in the top ten among all-rounders, with Southee dropping a spot to No.10 and team-mate Neil Wagner falling out of the top 10 with a drop of four spots. As with the bowling rankings, Jamieson, who frustrated India with handy lower order runs, gained big on the allrounders’ table, rising 26 places to No.22.

    Captains Jason Holder of the West Indies and Ben Stokes of England head into the opening match of their three-Test series as the top two all-rounders in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings, as well as the top-ranked batsmen from their respective sides.

    They are the top two all-rounders in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings and also the top-ranked batsmen from their respective sides going into the Southampton Test

    Chance for England to move up in the ICC World Test Championship while the West Indies look for opening points
    Holder, only the second West Indies player after Sir Garry Sobers to hold the top spot among Test all-rounders, has a career best 473 points going into the Southampton Test. The 28-year-old from Barbados has been at the top since January 2019.

    Stokes, who is skipper for the opening match as Joe Root will be away for the birth of his second child, is on 407 points. Stokes would be looking to work his way up in the points aggregate during the series and emulate compatriot Andrew Flintoff, the last England player at the top of the Test all-rounders’ list, in May 2006.

    Holder is in 35th position among batsmen with Shane Dowrich, Roston Chase and Kraigg Brathwaite ranked from 44th to 52nd places. Shai Hope, currently in 64th position, would be hoping to move up by striking the kind of form that saw him score twin centuries to win the Leeds Test three years ago. Holder is also their leading bowler, in third position, with fast bowlers Kemar Roach (11th) and Shannon Gabriel (19th) others in the top 20.

    Tenth-ranked Stokes is England’s leading batsman in the absence of Root, while their next highest ranked batsman is Rory Burns in 33rd position – back after injuring himself playing football. Formerly top-ranked James Anderson leads the bowlers in eighth position with Chris Woakes (23rd) and Stokes (26th) just outside the top 20.

    ICC World Test Championship: England, currently on 146 points, would be aiming to overtake New Zealand (180) to third position in the ICC World Test Championship points table while the West Indies would be hoping to garner their opening points having previously lost 2-0 to table leaders India. England drew a five-Test series 2-2 against Australia and won a four-match series 3-1 against South Africa.

    Each series of the WTC is worth 120 points, distributed evenly over the number of matches in a series. The points range from 60 points for each match of a two-Test series to 24 for each match of a five-Test series. The top two teams at the end of the league will play the final to decide the champion.

    l'd like to pay more attention to these rankings once things ease in the world, there is already fears of a second spike in the UK and another lockdown which could lead to cancellation of cricket yet again, I hope it doesn't come to that

    Jason Holder and Ben Stokes make career-high gains in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men's Test Player Rankings, following the conclusion of the first England v West Indies Test.

    • Jason Holder attains best rating points for a West Indies bowler in two decades even as race with Ben Stokes for top spot among all-rounders promises to gain momentum

    Captain Jason Holder has attained the highest points tally by any West Indies bowler in 20 years, reaching a career-best second place in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings after playing a crucial role in his side’s four-wicket victory over England in Southampton that helped take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

    Holder, who picked seven wickets including a haul of six for 42 in the first innings, is now on a career-best 862 points, the best for any West Indies bowler since Courtney Walsh’s tally of 866 in August 2000.

    Holder retained 35th position among batsmen after the first Test and has also reached a career-best tally of 485 points at the top of the all-rounders’ list. The competition at the top promises to gain momentum as number-two Ben Stokes has also made huge gains to attain a career-best tally of 431 points, narrowing the lead from 66 to 54 points.

    Stokes, leading the side in the absence of Joe Root, has equaled his career-high ninth position among batsmen that he achieved last November, after scores of 43 and 46 at the Ageas Bowl. He is now only one place behind Root. Stokes has also risen three places in the bowlers’ list to 23rd position with six wickets in the match.

    Other England players to move up the rankings include left-handed opener Rory Burns, who is in the top 30 for the first time after scores of 30 and 42, while middle-order batsman Zak Crawley is in the top 100 after accumulating 86 runs in the match.

    For the visiting side, Shannon Gabriel has gained 46 points to reach a tally of 726 with a player-of-the-match effort of nine wickets, but risen only one place to 18th owing to the wide gap between him and Ravindra Jadeja (722) before the match.

    Jermaine Blackwood’s superb second-innings knock of 95 has helped him advance 14 slots to 58th position among batsmen while Shane Dowrich is at a career-best 37th position after scores of 61 and 20.

    The win for the West Indies earned them 40 points in the ICC World Test Championship after a 2-0 loss to India in their only previous series of the championship.

    England remain on 146 points and fourth place in the list led by India with 360 points. Australia are second with 296 points while New Zealand are third at 180.

    Each series of the WTC is worth 120 points, distributed evenly over the number of matches in a series. The points range from 60 points for each match of a two-Test series to 24 for each match of a five-Test series. More on the WTC is available here.

    Stokes replaces Holder as top-ranked all-rounder

    England star Ben Stokes has outdone West Indies captain Jason Holder to become the world’s top-ranked Test all-rounder while also attaining a career-best third position among batsmen in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings, after a match-winning performance at Old Trafford.

    Stokes, who trailed Holder by 54 rating points going into the second Test in Manchester, enjoys a lead of 38 points after his memorable knocks of 176 and 78 and a match haul of three wickets helped England win by 113 runs and level the three-match series 1-1.

    Stokes ended Holder’s 18-month reign at the top, becoming the first from England at the summit since Andrew Flintoff in May 2006. His tall of 497 rating points is the highest by any Test all-rounder since Jacques Kallis aggregated 517 in April 2008.

    Among batsmen, Stokes is joint-third with Marnus Labuschagne, only behind Steve Smith and Virat Kohli and with specialist batsmen like Kane Williamson and Babar Azam below him in the list. His captain Joe Root is ninth while opener Dom Sibley has advanced 29 places to a career-best 35th position after a sturdy first innings 120.

    Stuart Broad, who was not picked for the opening Test, returned to the top 10 after claiming three wickets in each innings. He is now England’s top-ranked bowler, one slot ahead of James Anderson, who dropped to 11th after being rested for the match. Chris Woakes, who scalped five in the match to reach the 100-wicket mark, is in 21st position, his highest since late 2016.

    For the West Indies, Shamarh Brooks has moved up 27 places to a career-best 45th position after scores of 68 and 62. He is now just four slots behind Holder, who remains the top-ranked West Indies batsman in 41st position despite slipping four places. Holder has also dropped a slot among bowlers to take third place, behind Pat Cummins and Neil Wagner. Roston Chase has gained two places in the bowlers’ list after a five-wicket haul in the first innings.

    ICC World Test Championship: The win at Old Trafford has lifted England to third position in the ICC World Test Championship points table. They are now on 186 points, six more than New Zealand. India lead with 360 points while Australia are second at 296. The West Indies remain on 40 points.

    Each series of the WTC is worth 120 points, distributed evenly over the number of matches in a series. The points range from 60 for each match of a two-Test series to 24 for each match of a five-Test series. More on the WTC is available here.

    He isn't in the top 10, with Tim Southee even there. I'm guessing he misses out via some qualification criteria. His last rating was 397.

    England’s Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow will be in the focus from the rankings perspective as the reigning World Cup champions kick off the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League with their three-match home series against Ireland on Thursday.

    • Spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali lead England’s bowling attack in the absence of premier fast bowlers

    • Stirling and McBrine lead the batting and bowling rankings, respectively for Ireland

    England’s Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow will be in the focus from the rankings perspective as the reigning World Cup champions kick off the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League with their three-match home series against Ireland on Thursday.

    Opener Roy and wicketkeeper-batsman Bairstow, who are currently ranked 11th and 14th, respectively, in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings, could work their way back into the top 10, having both enjoyed personal best rankings of ninth position in the past. Roy was in ninth place in July last year and Bairstow in October 2018.

    World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, who is the third best-ranked batsman from his side in 23rd position, will be leading against a side for whom he scored 99 on ODI debut against Scotland 14 years ago.

    With none of the England players featuring in their Test series against the West Indies named for the ODIs, England will be missing their premier fast bowlers and will be led by spin twins Adil Rashid (29th) and vice-captain Moeen Ali (44th).


    For Ireland, skipper Andy Balbirnie, who took over from long-time skipper William Porterfield last November and has only led in a three-ODI series in the Caribbean in January, is ranked 46th among batsmen. Paul Stirling remains their top-ranked batsman in 27th position, having held a career-high position of seventh in 2013.

    Off-spinner Andy McBrine (31st) and paceman Boyd Rankin (joint-40th) are their leading bowlers according to the rankings.

    Start of ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League: The series marks the start of the much-awaited Super League that will see 13 teams vie for direct qualifying places in the next ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India in 2023.

    India and seven other teams will make it directly from the league with the remaining five getting a second chance through a Qualifier. Teams will be awarded 10 points for a win, five for a tie, no-result or abandoned match and none for a loss.

    Stuart Broad has progressed seven places to reach third position among bowlers in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings after a stellar show in the final Test against the West Indies.

    • Notable progress for Burns, Pope and Woakes after fine performances in Manchester Test

    • Hope and Roach also register upward movement in latest rankings update

    Stuart Broad has progressed seven places to reach third position among bowlers in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings after a stellar show in the final Test against the West Indies, which England won by 269 runs to clinch the three-match series 2-1.

    The formerly top-ranked bowler, who finished with a match haul of 10 for 67 during which he touched the milestone of 500 Test wickets, has reached his best since August 2016 when too he was third.

    Broad has also gained seven places with the bat after his 62 off 45 balls in the first innings, the joint-third fastest for England in Test history, and risen three places among all-rounders to 11th. Another England bowler to advance is Chris Woakes, whose five-wicket haul in the second innings has lifted him to 20th position and a career-best rating points tally of 654.

    England opener Rory Burns has also gained in the latest update, gaining 13 spots to reach 17th position after scores of 57 and 90 at Old Trafford, the first time the 29-year-old left-hander has moved into the top 20.

    Ollie Pope is at a career-best 46th position, gaining 24 slots on the back of his 91 in his only innings of the match, while Jos Buttler’s knock of 67 has lifted him from 50th to 44th.

    For the West Indies, Shai Hope has gained two slots to reach 68th position while fast Kemar Roach has gained one slot to reach 15th place after grabbing four wickets in England’s first innings.

    Captain Andrew Balbirnie’s 113 in the final match against England helped him move up four places to 42nd in the ICC Men’s ODI Rankings for batsmen, while his deputy Paul Stirling’s 142 lifted him one slot to 26th.

    Morgan and Bairstow also move up among batsmen; Willey, Young reap benefits of successful series with the ball

    Ireland batsmen Andy Balbirnie and Paul Stirling have advanced in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings after figuring in a record 214-run partnership that helped win the final match of their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series against England in Southampton on Tuesday.

    Captain Balbirnie’s innings of 113 in the final match and an aggregate of 131 runs helped him move up four places to 42nd position while his deputy Stirling’s score of 142 and a total of 156 runs lifted him one slot to 26th in the list led by India skipper Virat Kohli.

    Rookie Curtis Campher’s impressive first series, which saw him score half-centuries both times he batted, has helped him make a noteworthy entry into the batsmen’s list in 191st position, and the Ireland bowlers too registered upward movement in the latest rankings update.

    Fast bowler Craig Young’s six wickets in the series have lifted him 40 places to a career-best 89th position while Mark Adair (up six places to 138th) and Joshua Little (up 38 places to 146th) are the others to move up after the series, which ended 2-1 in England’s favour.

    England captain Eoin Morgan, another centurion from Tuesday’s match, has gained one place and is 22nd while Jonny Bairstow has moved up a slot to 13th position, thanks to his knock of 82 in the second match. Sam Billings has re-entered the rankings at 146nd position after aggregating 132 runs.

    Among their bowlers, leg-spinner Adil Rashid has advanced from 29th to 25th with five wickets in the series, while left-arm fast bowler David Willey’s eight wickets, including a haul of five for 30 in the opening match, not only won him the player of the series award but has also lifted him six places to 51st position.

    England’s series win got them 20 points in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, which sees 13 teams vie for direct qualifying places in the next ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India in 2023. Ireland are on 10 points.

    India and seven other teams will make it directly from the league with the remaining two getting a second chance through a Qualifier.

    Masood, Woakes and Buttler move up in Test rankings

    Pakistan opener Shan Masood’s solid first-innings century and crucial second innings knocks by the England pair of Chris Woakes and Jos Buttler reflect in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings, which were updated on Sunday after the first Test in Manchester.

    Left-hander Masood’s knock of 156, which helped Pakistan take a 107-run first innings lead, has lifted him 14 places to a career-best 19th position, making him the second highest ranked Test batsman from his side after sixth-placed Babar Azam. Masood’s previous best was 32nd position in February this year.

    Player of the Match Woakes has progressed 18 places to 78th position after figuring in a 139-run sixth-wicket stand with Buttler that guided England to a three-wicket win. Woakes, who scored 19 and 84 in the match, has also jumped to seventh position in the list of all-rounders. Buttler’s innings of 38 and 75 have lifted him from 44th to 30th while Ollie Pope has attained a career-best 36th position after scoring 62 and seven.

    In the bowlers’ list, Pakistan leg-spinners Yasir Shah and Shadab Khan have made notable gains. Shah, a formerly top-ranked bowler, has moved up two places to 22nd place after finishing with eight wickets in the match. Shadab has re-entered the rankings at a career-best 69th position.

    For England, Stuart Broad remains in third position after taking six wickets in the match, but has closed the gap with New Zealand bowler Neil Wagner to seven points. Jofra Archer’s four wickets have helped him advance two places to 37th in the list.

    In the ICC World Test Championship points table, England have moved to 266 points, within 30 points of second-placed Australia. India lead the table with 360 points, New Zealand are fourth with 180 points and Pakistan fifth at 140.

    In the batsmen’s list, Babar Azam is back at a career-best fifth position, which he had attained in February 2020.

    • Babar at career best-equalling fifth position, Abid and Rizwan attain career bests

    Formerly top-ranked fast bowlers Stuart Broad and James Anderson of England have advanced in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings after some fine bowling in the drawn second Test against Pakistan in Southampton.

    Broad has moved up one slot to second position in the bowlers’ list after a haul of 4/56 while Anderson has moved up two slots to 14th with figures of 3/60, as the pair helped dismiss Pakistan for 236 in their only innings of the match.

    Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Abbas took 2/28 in England’s score of 110/4 declared, gaining two places to reach eighth position, but is still away from his career-best ranking of third in October 2018.

    In the batsmen’s list, Babar Azam is back at a career-best fifth position, which he had attained in February 2020. His knock of 47 helped him gain one place while his compatriots Abid Ali (up to 49th) and Mohammad Rizwan (up to 75th) have also attained career-best rankings after knocking up half-centuries.


    For England, Zak Crawley has moved to a career-best 81st place after a score of 53, even as all-rounder Ben Stokes and captain Joe Root have retained their seventh and ninth positions, respectively.

    In the ICC World Test Championship points table, England remain in third position with 279 points while Pakistan are fifth with 153. The list is led by India with 360 points and Australia are second at 296.

    Each series of the WTC is worth 120 points, distributed evenly over the number of matches in a series. The points range from 60 for each match of a two-Test series to 24 for each match of a five-Test series

    CRAWLEY, ANDERSON SOAR UP AFTER MEMORABLE PERFORMANCES


    England batsman Zak Crawley’s massive 267 and fast bowler James Anderson’s match haul of seven wickets see the duo shoot up in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings after the drawn final Test against Pakistan in Southampton.

    Crawley has ascended 53 spots to reach a career-best 28th position after recording the 10th highest individual score for England and their second highest maiden Test century. He had started the series in 95th position but his 320-run aggregate has made him the fourth best ranked England batsman after only eight Tests, behind Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Jos Buttler.

    Anderson has moved back to the top-10 after briefly dropping out of it since the preceding home series against the West Indies. The formerly top-ranked bowler has gained six spots to reach eighth position after a Test that saw him grab his 29th five-wicket haul in the first innings and become the first fast bowler to 600 wickets with Azhar Ali’s scalp in the second innings.

    Buttler is another England player to make notable progress in the latest rankings update after scoring a fine 152 in his side’s only innings of the Test. He has reached a career-best 637 rating points and 21st position, three off his best of 18th achieved in November 2018.

    All-rounder Ben Stokes has ceded the top spot for all-rounders to Jason Holder after missing two Test matches, dropping one point behind the West Indies captain. For each Test missed, players lose one per cent each of their batting and bowling points with a cumulative effect of about two per cent on a player’s all-round rating.

    For Pakistan, captain Azhar’s return to form with a solid 141 in the first innings has seen him gain 11 places and reach 23rd position, while wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan has gained three slots to reach 72nd position after a fighting half-century in the first innings.

    Part-time spinners Fawad Alam and Asad Shafiq are in the top 100 for bowlers. Fawad has gained 22 slots to reach 94th position while Asad has moved up nine places to 100th place.

    Australia have reclaimed the top spot in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings after briefly conceding it to England during the three-match series in Southampton, which the visiting side lost 2-1.

    Australia had started the series at 278 points, 10 ahead of second-placed England, but were overtaken by their rivals after losing the first two matches. Australia and England were both on 273 points at that stage with England marginally ahead on decimal points.

    Australia, who were number one for the first time in this format at the time of the annual update on 1 May this year, return to the top within two days of being overtaken by England.

    They are now on 275 points and England on 271. India, who host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup next year, are third with 266 points and Pakistan fourth with 261.

    Dawid Malan has jumped four spots to claim the No.1 position in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men's T20I Player Rankings for batting.


    • Bairstow, Buttler, Rashid, Richardson and Starc also gain in latest rankings update

    England batsman Dawid Malan has seized the No.1 position in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings after a fruitful home series against Australia, which England won 2-1.

    The 33-year-old left-hander has progressed four places after a series-topping run aggregate of 129, which included a player of the match effort of 66 in the first fixture. Malan, whose previous best ranking was second in November last year, is now eight rating points ahead of Pakistan’s Babar Azam.

    Malan’s teammates Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler have also made headway in Wednesday’s update. Bairstow has gained three slots to reach a career-best 19th position after scoring 72 runs in the series while Buttler has moved from 40th to 28th after scoring 121 runs in two matches, which also won him the player of the series award.

    For Australia, captain Aaron Finch’s 125 runs in the series have helped him retain third position. Glenn Maxwell also holds on to his sixth position among batsmen while gaining one slot to reach second position in the list of all-rounders led by Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi.

    England leg-spinner Adil Rashid has gained two slots to reach seventh position after finishing as the most successful bowler in the series with six wickets, while Australia left-arm spinner Ashton Agar’s five wickets have enabled him retain third position, behind the Afghanistan spin pair of Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman.

    Australia fast bowler Kane Richardson has moved into the top 10 for the first time in his career after taking three wickets in the series while his compatriot Mitchell Starc (up seven places to 18th) and England’s Mark Wood (up 41 places to 79th) have also made notable gains.

    Meanwhile, Australia have reclaimed the top spot in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings after briefly conceding it to England during the series.

    Australia started the series 10 points ahead of their rivals at 278, but were overtaken after losing the first two matches, when both were on 273 points, with England ahead on decimal points. Australia, who were number one for the first time in this format at the time of the annual update on 1 May this year, are now on 275 points and England on 271.

    Reigning World champions England will be up against formidable opposition Australia in a three-match ODI series in Manchester from Friday as both teams look for important ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League points.

    England played at home in the only series of the Super League so far, winning 2-1 against Ireland, while five-time World Cup winners Australia will look to make a bright start to their campaign for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 against the defending champions.

    The Super League, introduced to bring context to ODI cricket, will determine qualification for 2023, with the top seven teams booking their spots along with hosts India.

    Featuring 13 teams, the 12 ICC Full Members and the Netherlands, who qualified by winning the ICC World Cricket League Championship 2015-17, the Super League will see each side play four home and four away three-match series. The sides failing to qualify directly will get a second shot through a Qualifier.

    Each team gets 10 points for a win, five for a tie/no result/abandonment and none for a loss.
Teams will be ranked according to total points earned across the eight series.

    The England-Australia series will also feature many leading players in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings including formerly top-ranked Australia players David Warner (presently ranked sixth), Mitchell Starc (10th) and Josh Hazlewood (15th). Among other Australia players to watch are captain Aaron Finch (seventh) among batsmen and fast bowler Pat Cummins (fourth), who too have enjoyed higher rankings in the past.

    For England, Joe Root is the highest ranked batsman in ninth place. The Test captain would be looking to claw back towards the second rank he enjoyed two years ago, while Jonny Bairstow (13th) and Jason Roy (14th) have a chance to return to the top 10. Chris Woakes is seventh among bowlers and fifth among all-rounders.

    Carey, all of whom slammed centuries in the final match of their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series in Manchester, have made remarkable gains in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings.

    Woakes reaches career-best fourth position among bowlers and second among all-roundersArcher, Zampa and Labuschagne attain career bests after ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series

    Bairstow topped the series aggregate with 196 runs after his 126-ball 112 in the final match to make a return to the top 10. The previous best for the 30-year-old Yorkshire player was ninth position in October 2018. He is now within 23 points of his career-best rating points of 777.

    Maxwell and Carey, who were involved in a 212-run fifth-wicket stand that helped Australia complete a thrilling three-wicket victory and take the series 2-1, are next to each other in the rankings table led by the India pair of captain Virat Kohli and opener Rohit Sharma.

    Maxwell has gained five places to take joint 26th position along with Paul Stirling of Ireland after scoring 186 runs in the series, while Carey comes in next after his total of 152 runs elevated him 11 places to a career-best 28th position.

    Others to move up in the list include Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne (up 20 places to a career-best 63rd) and Sam Billings of England, who scored 118 in the first match to finish with 183 runs in the series, only behind Bairstow and Maxwell, making it to the top 100 for the first time.

    England all-rounder Chris Woakes is a major gainer in the rankings for bowlers, advancing three places to a career-best fourth position after finishing with six wickets in the series. Woakes is now second in the list of all-rounders after also notching 89 runs in the series. His compatriot Ben Stokes is among those he has overtaken to reach within 20 points of Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi.

    Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has returned to the top 10 for the first time in nearly two years, his player of the match performance of 3/34 in the first match the highlight of a four-wicket tally. He has moved up from 15th to eighth position.

    England fast bowler Jofra Archer has gained 18 slots to reach a career-best 10th place after finishing with seven wickets in the series including a player of the match effort of 3/34 in the second match.

    Australia leg-spinner Adam Zampa’s series-topping 10 wickets have lifted him to 21st position.

    Five-time World champions Australia collected 20 points from their first series of the Super League, introduced to add context to bilateral ODI series. The top seven teams from the Super League and hosts India book direct spots for the 2023 World Cup.

    England lead the points table with 30 points but are the only team to have played two series, winning 2-1 at home against Ireland early on in the championship.

    Pakistan has actually lost points and are now at 100 points and deservedly so after losing to Zimbabwe. The updated rankings are on cricinfo, not what you see above.

    Interesting as ICC is also showing updated on Nov 3 with 35 matches for Pak and Cricinfo is also showing the same but different points. However, I think possibly you are right.

    Pakistan bowler Shaheen Afridi, who picked up 5/49 in the first ODI against Zimbabwe, has shot up eight places to break into the top 20 for the first time.

    Babar gains valuable rating points to move closer to leading Indian pair of Kohli and Sharma; Taylor, Williams and Raza gain in latest rankings update

    Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has achieved a career-best 16th position in the ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings after a notable performance in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series against Zimbabwe that they won 2-1.

    Shaheen, who shot into international prominence in the ICC Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup 2018 in New Zealand, has gained eight places to move into the top 20 for the first time in his career with a match-winning haul of 5/49 in the opening ODI of the series.

    Wahab Riaz, also a left-arm fast bowler like Shaheen, is another one to gain in the latest rankings update. He has moved up six places to 60th position, grabbing five wickets in two matches, including a haul of 4/41 in the second match of the series.

    In the batting rankings, all-rounder Imad Wasim has gained three spots to reach 49th position even as captain Babar Azam has bridged the gap a little with the Indian pair of captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Babar’s 221 runs, which include a knock of 125 in the third match, see him gain eight points though he remains in third position.

    For Zimbabwe, Brendan Taylor and Sean Williams have advanced among batters after slamming fine centuries in the series. Taylor has progressed nine slots to 42nd position after scoring 204 runs including a knock of 112 in the first match. Williams has advanced 12 places to 46th position with 197 runs including an unbeaten 118 in the final match. Among bowlers, Sikandar Raza has moved up to 66th place and Donald Tiripano to 90th.

    Meanwhile, Zimbabwe’s Super Over win in the final ODI has helped them gain 10 points while Pakistan got 20 points, remaining ahead of Australia on net run rate. England lead with 30 points after playing two series of the Super League, introduced to bring context to ODI cricket and to decide the seven direct qualifiers for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 along with hosts India.

    Malan deserves his position on the T20I Batting Rankings, a good strike rate, and remarkable consistency.

    Not a big deal if Babar isn't No.1 Ranked Batsman, as long as he's doing his job at the top of the order, I doubt we can have any objections.

    Need to see better all-rounders in Pakistan. We desperately need to convert one of Shadab or Imad into a very powerful striker of the ball, almost a Pandya to get us runs quickly in the death.

    Pakistan vs South Africa series will be interesting to see, both are turbulent teams in the recent past, to say the least.

    Dawid Malan has attained the highest-ever rating points for batsmen in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings after a terrific run saw him top the series aggregate with 173 runs and help England blank South Africa 3-0.

    The 33-year-old left-hander has reached 915 points, the first to cross the 900-point mark after Australian Aaron Finch’s 900-point achievement in July 2018. Malan now enjoys a 44-point lead over Pakistan’s Babar Azam, whom he overtook to become number one in September this year.

    Malan’s player of the series performance included a match-winning 99 not out in the final match and helped England leapfrog Australia to take top position in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings.

    England, who had started the series at 271 points, are now level with Australia at 275 points but ahead on decimal points. South Africa and New Zealand retain their fifth and sixth positions while the West Indies have slipped behind Afghanistan to 10th place after losing 2-0 to New Zealand in another series, performances of which are also included in Wednesday’s rankings update.

    England’s Jos Buttler has gained seven spots to reach 21st position while South Africa’s Rassie van der Dussen’s continued good form, which saw him score 136 runs in the series, has lifted him 17 places to a career-best fifth position. Faf du Plessis’s return to form, with an aggregate of 121 runs, has pushed him into the top 20.

    Among the bowlers, England’s leg-spinner Adil Rashid is back to the 700-point mark, gaining three places to reach number 4. He is just one spot below his career-best third position achieved in November 2018. The top seven bowlers are all spinners, with Tabraiz Shamsi, South Africa’s top ranked bowler in 5th place.

    Chris Jordan, who became England’s leading T20I wicket-taker in the third match against South Africa with his 66th wicket, has gained one place to reach 12th rank.

    Fast bowler Lungi Ngidi makes an entry into the top 50 bowlers for the first time after taking four wickets in the series. His previous best was 67th in September this year.

    The series in New Zealand saw the home side’s Lockie Ferguson leap 45 slots to 32nd position after finishing as the most successful bowler in the series with seven wickets, which included a player of the match effort of five for 21 in the first match.

    Glenn Phillips celebrated his recall to the New Zealand T20I side for the first time in two years by smashing a century in the second match and climbing into the top 100 batsmen for the first time – ending the series in 86th place.

    Kieron Pollard was the West Indian star of the series, scoring 103 runs at a strike rate of 198. That was good enough to take him up 18 places to the 57th rank with the bat and up to seventh place in the all-rounders’ table.

    AUSTRALIA MOVE TO THE TOP OF THE ICC MEN'S CRICKET WORLD CUP SUPER LEAGUE TABLE


    The Aaron Finch-led Australia side has moved to the top of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League points table following their 2-1 victory over India.

    Hosts Australia beat India for a 2-1 series win and have jumped to No.1 in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League with 40 points. India won the last game of the series and are placed at the No.6 position with 9 points.

    Aaron Finch-led Australia were clinical in their approach with stellar performances in all departments, defeating Virat Kohli-led India in the first two games of the series. In the third ODI at Canberra today, debutant T Natarajan from India dismissed Marnus Labuschagne to pick up his maiden international wicket after half-centuries from Virat Kohli, all-rounder Hardik Pandya (92*) and Ravindra Jadeja (66*). The performances helped India to a 13-run win.

    Australia had defeated England 2-1 in their previous series of the 13-team championship, which was introduced this year to bring context to ODI cricket and also to decide the seven direct qualifiers for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. India, though assured of a berth as hosts, were to use the opportunity for long-term preparation.

    Reigning World Cup winners England are second in the points table with 30 points. They defeated Ireland 2-1 in the opening series of the championship before losing by the same margin to five-time world champions Australia.

    Pakistan are also on 20 points after a 2-1 series win over Zimbabwe, who secured 10 points for their Super Over win in the final ODI played in Rawalpindi.

    KANE WILLIAMSON RISES TO SECOND POSITION IN MRF TYRES ICC TEST PLAYER RANKINGS


    • His innings of 251 was the ninth-highest individual score in New Zealand’s Test history and took him from fourth to second position

    Kane Williamson’s massive 251 against the West Indies in Hamilton catapulted him into second place in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings, a position he now shares with team India captain, Virat Kohli. With his recent performance, he gained 74 points, moving from 812 to 886. His compatriot, Tom Latham, garnered his career-best points tally of 733 and tenth place on the table, thanks to his innings of 86.

    From the West Indies camp, Jermaine Blackwood continued the good form he showed on the tour of England earlier in the year, scoring his second Test century. The knock shot him up 17 places to 41st, his best position since reaching 40th in August 2017.

    Alzarri Joseph’s unlikely 86 in the West Indies second innings rocketed him up 31 places to rank 123 with a career-best of 219 points.

    Neil Wagner’s six wickets in the match edged him ahead of England’s Stuart Broad back into second place in the bowlers’ rankings, equaling his career-best position, which he first achieved back in December 2019. Tim Southee made his Test debut back in March 2008, but his current tally of 817 points is his highest taking him to 4th.

    West Indies Captain, Jason Holder dropped from fifth to seventh having not taken any wickets. Holder has also lost the top spot in the all-rounders table. He was top by one point from England’s Ben Stokes, but Stokes now has a twelve-point advantage. Stokes briefly held the top spot during the summer, snatching it from Holder after the second Test with the West Indies, before Holder reclaimed it.

    With Kane expected to lose a few points due to paternal leave and Kohli playing one game (pink ball) and departing its a golden opportunity for Babar to break into the top 3! what a proud moment that will be for all of us

    Surprised to see Rohit still trailing Kohli in ODI rankings and only 5 points ahead of Babar after what he did at the World Cup last year. The players ranking system can be really weird at times.

    Rohit is comfortably the best ODI batsman in the world right now and deserves a rating of 900+.

    Agreed. Needs to be greater weighting given to World Cup games for one compared to bilaterals. I will also attach greater weight to ICC knockout games than a typical game - not sure if thatís already taken into consideration in ICCís calculations.

    The difference is Rohit has a bad series against the West Indies in West Indies, then only had two good games (which were particularly fantastic) across two series against Windies in India and Australia in India.

    He then missed all the ODIs against New Zealand and Australia. So itís fair to drop him down in the rankings despite the mammoth world cup.

    India captain, Virat Kohli’s two half-centuries in the recently concluded Australia vs India ODI series have cemented his spot at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings for batsmen. Despite missing the ODI series owing to a hamstring injury, his compatriot Rohit Sharma remains at number two, five points ahead of Babar Azam who is on third.

    During the first ODI of India’s tour of Australia in Sydney, India batsman Hardik Pandya missed out closely from becoming the third batsman to score a century in the match following the likes of Australia captain Aaron Finch and batsman Steven Smith. Playing his first ODI since the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Pandya struck 90 in the first game and 92 not out in the third to make his first appearance in the top 50 batsmen at 49th place with a career-best of 553 points.

    From the Australian camp, captain Aaron Finch’s innings of 114 in the first Australia vs India ODI, followed by 60 and 75 helped him up to a career-best tally of 791 points and fifth place, just behind his best of fourth achieved earlier June 2019. Steve Smith’s pair of 62-ball centuries in the first two matches enabled him to move back into the ODI to 20 batsmen for the first time since 2018. He is currently at number fifteen with 707 points. Glenn Maxwell’s 167 runs in the series came at a strike rate of 194.18 and featured two half-centuries, to push him back up to 20th rank. This is the first time he has been in the top 20 since February 2017.

    In a series dominated by batsmen, Adam Zampa made the big impact with the ball, enabling him an entry in the top 20 ODI bowlers for the very first time. Zampa’s seven wickets at 23 took him to the fourteenth position with a career-best 623 points. Josh Hazlewood took six wickets and moved up a place to the sixth rank.

    VIRAT KOHLI MANAGED TO CLOSE THE GAP ON STEVE SMITH AT THE TOP OF THE MRF ICC MEN'S TEST BATTING RANKINGS


    After the recently concluded Australia vs India Test in Adelaide, despite India’s capitulation, Virat Kohli managed to fractionally close the gap on Steve Smith at the top of the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings from 25 points to 13 points. Kohli’s first innings of 74 enabled him to gain two points, whereas Smith’s 1 & 1* lost him 10 points in the table.

    Marnus Labuschagne’s innings of 47 & 6 in such a low-scoring match have pushed him to a career-best 839 points. Whereas, Captain Tim Paine’s player-of-the-match innings of 73 not out has lifted him with a career best of 33rd place with 592 points. His previous best was 45th in December of 2018. Further down, Joe Burns unbeaten 51 saw him move into 48th place, the first time he has been in the top 50 since 2016.

    With the ball, Pat Cummins took seven wickets in the match to gain six points and move from 904 to 910, which is a comfortable lead over Stuart Broad in second place. Australian pacer, Josh Hazelwood’s astonishing figures of 5/8 in India’s second innings helped him gain four spots and move back into the top five with 805 points, the first time since March 2018. With four wickets in Australia’s first innings, India’s R Ashwin has overtaken Jasprit Bumrah as India’s top ranked bowler, currently in the ninth place.

    New Zealand opener Tim Seifert and fast bowler Tim Southee have attained career-best positions after playing important roles in a 2-1 series win over Pakistan.

    Seifert has advanced 24 slots to a career-best ninth position after a fine run in the home series saw him top the aggregate with 176 runs while Southee’s six wickets in the series have lifted him from 13th to seventh position.

    Seifert, who was named player of the series with the high point being a career-best 84 not out off 63 balls in the second match in Hamilton, had a previous highest ranking of 32nd in August this year.
    Southee’s six wickets, which included a haul of four for 21 in the second match, enabled him to better his previous best of 10th position accomplished in November last year. Southee has thus reached the top 10 in all three formats during his career, having career-bests of fourth in Tests and ninth in ODIs.

    Devon Conway (up 10 places to 62nd) and Glenn Phillips (up 15 places to a career-best 72nd) are the other New Zealand players to move up in the batting list while fast bowler Scott Kuggeleijn has progressed from 134th to 92nd place after finishing with five wickets in the series.

    For Pakistan, Mohammad Hafeez’s 140 runs, which included an unbeaten 99 in the second match, see him gain 14 places to reach 33rd position. Mohammad Rizwan’s 158 runs, including a match-winning 89 in the final game, have lifted him 152 places to 158th position.

    Pakistan’s bowlers had more to cheer about, with Faheem Ashraf moving up 22 places to 13th position, Shaheen Afridi gaining 11 ranks to reach a career-best 16th position and Harif Rauf’s five wickets in the series helping him climb 42 places to 67th on the chart.
