Ravindra Jadeja regained his first place in the International Cricket Council Test rankings, reports betraja.in. The 32-year-old Ravindra has become the number one all-rounder.
The Indian all-rounder has pushed Jason Holder out of first place according to the latest update on Wednesday by ICC. Please check out the latest rankings.
Ravindra Judaja overran Jason Holder and has scored 386 points while Jason Holder scored only 384.
The former West Indian team captain has struggled with the bat, with just 34 injuries in four innings against South Africa at home. His bowling performance was much better, with Jason Holder averaging six wickets in two events.
Ravindra Jadeja is the only player to have climbed to the top 10 of the International Cricket Council rankings, with Jason Holder and Ben Stokes at the bottom of the podium. Good results in a series of tests allowed Tim Southey to progress, and the Kiwi Ace was close to entering the top ten but finished in 11th place.
Ravindra Jadeja and Ben Stokes will compete for first place in International Cricket Council in the near future
While Ravindra Jadeja’s number one status now looks secure, he will likely win the Ben Stokes competition soon.
India and England are meeting in a five-game test in August-September. While Ravindra Jadeja is already on the Indian team, Ben Stokes also is likely to play, as the all-rounder has recovered from his injury.
Ben Stokes scored 377 points, which is just nine points less than Ravindra Jadeji (386). Thanks to the strong result of the English star, he has all chances to take Ravindra Jadeja out of the top spot in the upcoming months.
Ravichandran Ashwin could become an outside leader in all-rounder International Cricket Council test rankings. He is currently placed fourth in the ICC rankings scoring 353 points but is slightly behind the top three all-rounders in Test cricket.
