ICC Test Rankings: Jasprit Bumrah Rises To 3rd Spot, Joe Root Dethrones Marnus Labuschagne

Indian fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah has reached the third position in the latest ICC men’s Test bowler rankings. The latest bowling rankings have seen some changes, with the Kiwi fast bowler Kyle Jamieson falling three places to sixth after suffering a back injury against England. He took India’s pacer Jaspreet Bumrah (third), Pakistani pacer Shaheen Afridi (fourth) and South Africa’s pacer Kagiso Rabada (fifth) to the same spot, while Jameson’s New Zealand teammates A pair changed positions in the top 10.

Veteran left-hander Trent Bolt jumped four places to ninth in the bowling rankings, but as a result, compatriot Tim Southee dropped five places to 13th.

England batsman Joe Root topped the latest ICC Men’s Test batsman rankings, ending the era of Australian batsman Marin LeBushgan.

LeBoschgan climbed to the top in December last year after scoring 103 and 51 against England in Adelaide, but Root’s recent impressive form has helped him knock LeBlanc from the top.

Root has already scored four centuries this calendar year and has become the second Englishman to score more than 10,000 runs in Test cricket.

The Englishman now has a total of 897 rating points, five points higher than second-placed Labuschagne.

When Australia take on Sri Lanka in the two-match World Test Championship series away from home later this month, LeBlashgin may have a chance to regain top billing, but Root also has a busy era of Test cricket. ۔

Root is currently in the middle of a three-match Test series against New Zealand, with England also hosting the lone Test between India and South Africa and South Africa for three matches in the coming months.


In the latest Test rankings, Australia’s Steve Smith is still at number three, Pakistan captain Babar Azam and New Zealand captain Ken Williamson are in the top five.

The most active player in the rankings was Daryl Mitchell, the New Zealand batsman ranked 17th with an overall increase of 33 points after scoring 190 and 69 * in the second Test against England at Trent Bridge.
