Following a century in the Dominica Test, India captain Rohit Sharma is back in the top ten of the ICC’s Test batting rankings. Rohit, who made 103 in India’s massive innings win over West Indies, is now the the highest ranked Indian on the table, having pushed his team-mate Rishabh Pant down a place into 11th. Pant has not played any cricket in 2023, as he is still recovering from the injuries sustained in a serious car accident on December 30.
Virat Kohli remained static at No. 14 in the latest update to the rankings. Kane Williamson, himself recovering from knee surgery after rupturing his ACL ligament during the IPL in March, remains at the top of the Test batters’ list.
Rohit’s Dominica century had come in an opening stand of 229 with debutant Yashasvi Jaiswal, who made 171 to be named Player of the Match. That performance saw Jaiswal enter the rankings at 73rd spot.
On the bowling front, Ravindra Jadeja, who took five in the match, moved up three places to No. 7. He remains No. 1 in the allrounders’ rankings, while his spin partner R Ashwin firmed up his spot at No. 1 in the bowling list with a match haul of 12 for 131 (his fourth-best match figures overall).
