Performance by India’s Ravindra Jadeja, a man of the match in which he achieved the best record of his career, was unbeaten for 175 years at-bat and received the 9/87 with the ball in India’s innings and 222 runs victory against Sri Lanka in Mohali. It was enough to catapult him to pole position. India‘s Ravindra Jadeja just topped the last ICC test ranking in August 2017 when she spent a week at number one.
After a solid performance in their first Test match against Sri Lanka, India’s men are on top again. Captain Rohit Sharma didn’t cause much trouble for the scorers in his first Test as captain, with Captain Rohit Sharma dropping one spot to finish 6th. Apart from Ravichandran Ashwin of former India skipper Virat Kohli who scored 45 runs in the historic 100th Test, former India skipper Virat Kohli moved up two places to take the first place on the batting chart.
