Shakib regains test all-rounders top spot

Bangladesh’s Shakib al Hasan has regained top spot in the ICC’s Test all-rounders’ ranking.
Shakib has displaced Ashwin from the top rank in the list of all-rounders after the two players inter-changed positions two times last week.

The Bangladeshi all-rounder took six wickets in Colombo test against Sri Lanka which helped tigers to won the 100th test.

Bangladesh test captain Mushfiqur Rahim (28th) also attain career-best rannking.

Apart from that, Australia’s Peter Handscomb (35th) and New Zealand batsmen Jeet Raval (43rd) and Henry Nicholls (45th) have also achieved career-best rankings, according to ICC’s media release.

Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has whizzed ahead of India spin-twin Ravichandran Ashwin to take the sole top spot in the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for Test Bowlers after grabbing nine wickets in the drawn third Test against Australia which puts the four-match series interestingly poised at 1-1.

Meanwhile, the race for the second spot in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings has become interesting as Australia and South Africa compete ahead of the cut-off date of 1 April, on which India is assured of finishing first and a cash award of $1 million.

Australia will finish second and get a cash award $ 500,000 with at least a draw in the last Test in Dharamsala while South Africa can finish second if Australia loses and South Africa either wins or draws the last match against New Zealand in Hamilton.
