Ravindra Jadeja grabs top spot in ICC Test bowler rankings

Mar 22, 2017 11:03 IST

ICCIndia’s ace bowler Ravindra Jadeja in third week of March 2017 grabbed the top spot in the list of the Test bowlers.

The top spot came after the left-handed spinner bagged a total of nine wickets in the recently concluded match between India and Australia in Ranchi, Jharkhand.

Earlier in March 2017, Ravichandran Ashwin and Jadeja were sharing the top spot in the list. However, Jadeja’s significant bowling dismantled Ashwin’s place in the ICC rankings.

Ashwin, who had a highest rating of 904 points, has slipped 37 points behind Jadeja to 862 points.
