Dubai: India captain Virat Kohli has moved up a spot to be fifth in th latest ICC Test rankings for batsmen while teammate Ravindra Jadeja has slipped a place to be third in the bowlers’ standings.

Kohli has edged Warner to take fifth position after completing his 50th international century in the first match of a three-Test series against Sri Lanka in Kolkata. Kohli, who is top-ranked in both ODIs and T20s, knocked up a fine 104 not out on day five before the game ended in a draw.

 

Opener Shikhar Dhawan has gained two places to reach 28th position while among India’s bowlers, pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has gained eight places to reach a career-best 29th position and Mohammad Shami has moved up one slot to 18th position.

Jadeja, who started the Sri Lanka series with the opportunity to reclaim the top bowling and all-rounder rankings, could not work towards the objective in Kolkata as all Sri Lanka batsmen fell to pace bowlers. He has slipped to third among bowlers and also lost 20 points in the all-rounders list, but still has a lot to look forward to in the remaining matches.
