Kohli consolidates top position in Test rankings

Kohli, Test rankings

India captain Virat Kohli, who struck 139 in India's massive win in the first Test against the West Indies, on Friday consolidated his position at the top of the Test rankings, moving within one point of his highest rating point of 937. Kohli had achieved his highest rating after the Southampton Test against England earlier this year.

Spinner Kuldeep Yadav's six wickets in the match, including a haul of five for 57 in the second innings, has lifted him 16 places to 52nd position. Ravindra Jadeja's 100 not out has lifted him six places to 51st among batsmen, and with him also claiming four wickets in the match, he has bridged the gap with top-ranked Shakib Al Hasan to three points in the list of all-rounders. For the West Indies, Roston Chase has moved up four places to 41st position and Kieran Powell has advanced five slots to 54th position.

Young Indian batsman Prithvi Shaw, who made an impressive debut in the Rajkot Test, has made fine entry into the Test rankings - entering the list of batsmen at the 73rd position. Australian debutant Aaron Finch, who slammed 62 and 49 in Dubai, was at number 72. Meanwhile, Australia opener Usman Khawaja has moved into the top 10 for the first time, after his dogged century helped his side salvage a draw against Pakistan. PTI
