Bumrah, Stokes soar in ICC Test rankings

Jasprit Bumrah has broken into the top 10 of the ICC Test rankings for bowlers, climbing nine places to occupy the No.7 spot with a career-high 774 points.

Bumrah, who currently leads the rankings for bowlers in ODIs, dismantled the West Indies batting line-up in the second innings of the first Test managing to take five wickets for merely seven runs.

Meanwhile, Ben Stokes' stupendous batting display in England's miraculous win in the third Ashes Test at Headingley has seen him rise 13 spots in the rankings for batsmen to No.13, surpassing his previous highest 19th position.

His incredible 135 not out and four wickets in the Test helped him advance two places in the rankings for all-rounders to No.2, just 22 points behind the No.1 ranked Jason Holder.

He is the second-highest run-scorer in the ongoing five-match Ashes series with 327 runs in six innings at a stellar average of 81.75.

England skipper Joe Root's significant contribution of 77 runs in the hosts' chase of the target of 359 has landed him on the No.7 spot.

Ace paceman Jofra Archer rose to the 43rd position after scalping eight wickets in the Headingley encounter - just his second game in Test cricket.

In line with the trend of pacers progressing in the rankings, Trent Boult has now made it into the top five as West Indies pacer Kemar Roach is slotted at number eight following an improvement of three places.

While Virat Kohli has maintained his hold over the number one ranking, Tom Latham's match-winning century against Sri Lanka has seen him move up eight spots to eighth position.

Sri Lankan skipper Dimuth Karunaratne's fighting fifty brought him a promotion to No.6.
