Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has replaced West Indies cricketer Jason Holder at the top of the ICC Men’s Test Rankings for an all-rounder. The 33-year-old showed his tremendous form in the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka a few days ago.
Jadeja was 175 not out during the first Test in Mohali and had a record of 5/41 & 4/46 with the ball. However, in the second game at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, the left-hander had recorded just 4 and 22 runs and 0/15 and 1/48 with the ball. He has the highest Test rating of 438 and the latest Test rating of 385.
Jason Holder is playing for his country in the three-match Test series against England in the West Indies and has dropped to number 2 after struggling in the game in Barbados. Meanwhile, he only scored 12 runs and took just one wicket in that game.
Three Indian batsmen continue to be amongst the top 10 batters: Rohit Sharma, going down from 6th to 7th, Virat Kohli at 9th, and Rishabh Pant at the 10th spot.
