ICC latest ranking updates have good news for the Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc and Englishman James Anderson. Both fast bowlers made significant improvements in the ICC Test rankings with their exquisite performances of late. Starc and Anderson moved up 2 and 5 places in the ICC rankings respectively.
Mitchell Starc enjoyed a fabulous summer for Australia with a slightly altered action. He had a phenomenal outing against Pakistan in the Test series followed by his wickets’ fest against New Zealand. After having an ordinary start to the last season, the 29-year old proved his credentials with his prolific comeback performances.
Anderson’s injury woes could not stop him from doing an incredible job for England in Test cricket. He continued to tumble records even at the age of 37 as he grabbed the most fifers for England in Test matches (28). He has also picked up 9 wickets in the ongoing Test series against South Africa.
