Ashwin, Jadeja jointly ranked number one in ICC Test rankings
The Indian duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja today became the first set of spinners to be jointly ranked number one in the ICC Test rankings for bowlers.
Jadeja caught up with Ashwin in the rankings after the second Test against Australia in Bengaluru which India won yesterday. Jadeja’s seven wickets in the match, which included crucial six wickets in the first innings, have helped him move up one rank to reach the top position for the first time in his career, the ICC said in a statement.
The last time two bowlers shared the top spot was in April 2008, when Dale Steyn and Muttiah Muralidaran were at the top.
Among batsmen, India captain Virat Kohli conceded the second rank to England’s Joe Root after managing only 27 runs in the match and 40 in the series so far. Root is now one point ahead of Kohli at 848 points.
Cheteshwar Pujara’s innings of 17 and 92 lifted him up five places to sixth rank, while Ajinkya Rahane has moved up two places to 15th rank. Player of the match Lokesh Rahul has gained 23 places to reach 23rd spot.
