India pacer Jasprit Bumrah and Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne have made significant gains in the latest ICC Test Rankings, following their brilliance in the recently concluded India-Sri Lanka Test series. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli dropped four places to slip from fifth to ninth among batters.

Jasprit Bumrah, who bagged eight wickets, including his maiden Test five-for at home in the 2nd India vs Sri Lanka Test in Bangalore, jumped up six spots to attain fourth ranking in the ICC Test Rankings for bowlers. The Indian speedster leapfrogged Shaheen Afridi, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, James Anderson, Neil Wagner, and Josh Hazlewood at the table.

Mohammed Shami climbed up a spot to displace fellow countryman Ravindra Jadeja to 17th. Meanwhile, Lasith Embuldeniya and Praveen Jayawickrama jumped up five positions each to 32nd and 45th slot respectively. Pat Cummins, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Kagiso Rabada have retained the top three spots.

Nkrumah Bonner and Shreyas Iyer took giant laps. Bonner scored 123 runs and an unbeaten 38 in the first drawn Test against England in Antigua last week. However, Iyer was rewarded for his match-winning 92 and 67 runs against Sri Lanka. Zak Crawley's 121 in the second innings against West Indies saw him jump 13 spots to 49th.

In the all-rounders' table, Jason Holder has reclaimed the top spot, replacing Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja had risen to No.1 after his 175* and nine wickets in the Mohali Test earlier this month. Ravichandran Ashwin, Shakib Al Hasan, and Ben Stokes round off the top five.
