Leach, Mitchell and Blundell achieve career best Test rankings
New Zealand all rounder Daryl Mitchell and wicket keeper batsman Tom Blundell notable performances in the recently concluded test series against England have earned them career best test rankings of 12 and 20 respectively. In the bowling department Jack Leach moved up at 25.
England’s wicket keeper batsman Johnny Bairstow rushed up 20 places at 21 following his heroics against the Kiwis.
Mitchell, who amassed 538 runs at a staggering average of 107.6 has now become only the second batsman after Don Bradman to score a century in each match of the test series. The 31 year old gained 4 spots to move up to 12. His teammate Tom Blundell scored 383 runs, rose 11 places to 20.
Jack Leach who before the series faced a lot of criticism for his underwhelming show with ball in hand answered his critics in fine fashion. The classical left arm spinner took a 10 wicket haul in the third and final test at Headingley. Leach climbed 13 spots in the test rankings at 25 within the bowling front.
Bairstow registered scores of 136, 162 and an unbeaten 71 in consecutive innings across Trent Bridge and Headingley Tests. During the dream spell, he also notched up England’s second fastest test hundred, 150 and 50 respectively.
The test rankings continue to be dominated by Joe Root (batting), Pat Cummins (bowling) and Ravindra Jadeja (all rounders).
