ICC Test Ranking Update: Good news has come for India on the sixth reserve day of the final of the World Test Championship being played between India and New Zealand. Indian team all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has become the world’s number one Test all-rounder. Shortly before now, the ranking of Test players has been released by the ICC. Ravindra Jadeja has overtaken Jason Holder of West Indies and has occupied the number one chair. This ranking has come when Ravindra Jadeja has neither batted nor got a chance to bowl in the second innings of the WTC final.
The final of the ICC World Test Championship was to end on June 22, but rain disrupted the match and not a single ball was played on the first and fourth days. Therefore, according to the rules of the ICC, the match is being played on the sixth day as well. It is difficult to say who will be in possession of this trophy. Indian team can win, New Zealand team can also win, while there is every possibility of a draw. Meanwhile, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has become number one in the ICC Test rankings. Ravindra Jadeja now has 386 rating points. On the other hand, Jason Holder has now slipped to second place with 384 points. England’s Ben Stokes is at number three, while India’s Ravichandran Ashwin is at number four.
On the other hand, if we talk about the list of batsmen, then Steve Smith remains at number one, he has 891 rating points. Kane Williamson is at number two, Marnus Labuschagne is at number three, while Indian captain Virat Kohli is at number four. Virat Kohli has 814 rating points. Pat Cummins is number one among bowlers, Ravichandran Ashwin of India has come at number two. Tim Southee still remains at number three.
