India’s front-line pacer Jasprit Bumrah has claimed the 4th spot in the latest ICC Test Rankings.

He took a total of eight wickets in the second Test match against Sri Lanka at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

He moved up six spots after his performance and has gone past the likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, James Anderson, Neil Wagner and Josh Hazelwood.

Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne’s fighting 107 in the fourth innings in the second Test gave him a rise of three spots to clinch his best ever 5th spot in the Test rankings.

West Indies Jason Holder has once again become the top-allrounder in Tests after he was replaced briefly by India’s Ravindra Jadeja.

Jadeja’s 175 not out and 9 wickets in the first Test at Mohali had pushed him up to the numero uno spot.

But, Holder’s recent heroics against England at home helped him reclaim the spot once again. He contributed with three wickets and made scores of 45 and 37 not out helped the hosts to manage a draw against England in the first Test at Antigua.

Nkrumah Bonner has also moved up 22 spots in the rankings to take up the 22nd position in the table.

Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer too has jumped up 40 spots to claim the 37th position in the rankings.
