Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has become the new ICC No.1 Test Bowler in the ICC Test rankings as James Anderson’s stay at the top comes to an end.

Ashwin’s six-wicket against Australia in the second Border-Gavaskar trophy helped him rise to the top of the bowler’s rankings. On the other hand, England’s 1-run loss at the hand of Nez Zealand was one of the reasons for James Anderson’s fall from the top.

Ashwin had picked up three wickets in the first inning of the Delhi test as Marnus Labuschange, Steve Smith and Alex Carey fell to his trap. He was again at it in the second inning as he picked up three more wickets.

After the first test against New Zealand in Mount Maunganui, James Anderson became the new No.1 ranked Test bowler at the age of 40. But since then he was dropped seven points in the ICC Test Rankings and is now 5 points behind Ravi Ashwin.

Along with them, Australian captain Pat Cummins is still among the top three test bowlers in the world. He is at number 3 with 858 points. Indian spinner Ravindra Jadeja has come up one spot after his back-to-back player of the match performances in the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Jadeja is at No.8 with 763 points.

With two more tests against Australia, both Jadeja and Ashwin will have the opportunity to get more points in the points table. Ashwin will have the opportunity to make his stay at the top longer while Jadeja will aim to break into the top 5 of the ICC Rankings.
