Veteran off spinner R. Ashwin has become the Number one ranked bowler in men’s tests for a staggering sixth time on the back of a nine wicket haul in the fifth and final test against the three lions in Dharamsala.  Australian speedster Josh Hazelwood has reached his career best ranking- No.2- following his six-fer in the Christchurch Test win against the Black Caps. 

India’s Jasprit Bumrah fell from No.1 to No.3 in the Test Bowling Rankings, while Kuldeep Yadav has moved up by 15 places to a career best 16th place after picking up seven wickets in the Dharamsala Test.   

In the men’s rankings for  Test batters India skipper Rohit Sharma has ascended five places to sixth, Yashasvi Jaiswal has moved up by two spots to eighth, while Shubman has achieved a career best No. 20. After playing only tests, Jaiswal has an aggregate of 740 rating points; only Don Braman (752) and Mike Hussey (741) have earned more according to the International Cricket Board. 

Ireland batter Harry Tector has occupied the fourth place in the men’s ODI batting rankings after scoring 141 runs in the three matches against Afghanistan in Sharjah. Pakistan's former skipper Babar Azam still leads the rankings with Gill and Virat Kohli at Nos.2 and 3, and Rohit at No. 5. 

Kane Williamson, Joe Root and Babar Azam are at first, second and third in the men’s test batting rankings, while Suryakumar Yadav leads the chart followed by Phil Salt  and Mohammad Rizwan at Nos. 2 and 3. 

Keshav Maharaj, Hazlewood and Adam Zampa form the top three in men’s ODI, while Adil Rashid, Wanindu Hasaranga and Akeal Hosein are the top ranked bowlers in T20 internationals. Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammad Nabi and Shakib Al Hasan are the top three all rounders in men’s tests, ODIs and T20 internationals respectively. 

India are the Number 1 side across the three formats, while Australia and England are No.2 and 3 in Tests; Australia and Proteas are No.2 and 3 in ODIs; and England and Australia take up the second and third spots in T20 internationals.
