India’s spinner Ravichandran Ashwin surpasses James Anderson in the ICC rankings for the top bowler’s position. Ashwin bagged an aggregate of 25 wickets in the Border- Gavaskar trophy. He sits at the top with 869 standing points while Anderson is second, 10 standing points behind the Indian off-spinner.
Former India captain Virat Kohli also made big earnings in the Test rankings for batters, jumping an aggregate of seven places to find himself at the 13th spot on the maps.
Ashwin has been an ever-harmonious player for India in test cricket. Kohli ended his 1205-day failure without a Test ton to reach the triadic- number score in the drawn Ahmedabad Test against Australia. He scored 186 runs in the first innings but missed out on a double-hundred. Kohli is nearby teammates Rishabh Pant(ninth), and Rohit Sharma(10th) as the only Indian batters ahead of him on the Test batsman rankings.
Axar Patel also had a memorable series, especially with the club, as he moved up eight places to 44th on the list for batters. He has gained one place to find himself at the fourth spot overall on the list for all-rounders following and adding up a whopping 264 runs over the 4 matches.
Ashwin and Jadeja were the principal lyricists for India in the series. With the former taking 25 wickets and the latter 22. Read More: The next FIFA World cup for 2026 will have 104 game program
For some reason, Jadeja fell a spot from 8th to 9th in the Test bowlers’ ICC rankings. There were elevations for Australian cricketers too in the rearmost rankings update. Opener Usman Khawaja of Australia grew two places to climb up to the 7th spot on the Test batting rankings next series-high 333 runs.
All-rounder Cameron Green, who only featured in the Ahmedabad Test, jumped an aggregate of 11 places to be placed 26th.
