The ICC has released its Test batting rankings on Saturday. India’s batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has reached the sixth position in this list. India’s test deputy Ajinkya Rahane has also moved up one place.
Cheteshwar Pujara leapfrogged Pakistan captain Babar Azam to finish sixth. Pujara batted like a warrior in the fourth Test against Australia at The Gabba. Pujara stood tall, beating the Australian bowlers, who were looking for a chance to break into the Indian lower order. Apart from Pujara, Rahane played the role of captain in the second Test to see India home. He is now in eighth place.
India captain Virat Kohli has retained his fourth rank. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson retained the top spot in the latest rankings while England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was rested for the Sri Lanka Test, dropped two places to tenth position in the batting rankings. In the bowling rankings, Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah have retained their eighth and ninth positions, while England fast bowler James Anderson has jumped one place to number six.
