Kane Willamson has found himself at the top with 883 rating points. England star Joe Root’s position declined following scores of 10 and 18 against Australia.

It is the first time Kane Williamson has reached the No.1 ranking since August 2021. The Kiwi batter first rose to the top back in November 2015. Meanwhile, Australian batters now occupy four of the top seven places on the Test batter rankings. Marnus Labuschagne (third), Travis Head (fourth), and Usman Khawaja (seventh) are all within striking distance of the No.1 spot ahead of the third Ashes Test against England this week at Headingley.

The Ashes also affected Pakistan captain Babar Azam, who slipped to the sixth position with 862 rating points.
