Jasprit Bumrah, Joe Root move up in ICC rankings following Hyderabad Test

England's Ollie Pope attains career-best ranking following his match-winning 196 against India in the first Test in Hyderabad

Jasprit Bumrah was one of India's standout performers in their loss against England in the first Test in Hyderabad, and his six wickets in the match have seen him jump to fourth in the ICC Test rankings for bowlers. India's Ravichandran Ashwin leads the table with 853 ranking points, while Bumrah is just three places behind with 825 points.

Among the all-rounders, Joe Root jumps up one place to fourth spot in the rankings. Root, who picked up five wickets in the Hyderabad Test, including a four-wicket haul in the first innings, is just behind Shakib Al Hasan (320), Ashwin (328) and Ravindra Jadeja (425) with 313 ranking points. With the bat, Root managed just 31 runs across two innings.

Ollie Pope, who slammed a magnificent 196, registers his best-ever position in the ICC Test rankings for batters. His match-winning performance sees him jump 20 spots to 15th place.

Australia opening batter Usman Khawaja jumps a couple of spots to eighth following his fifty against the West Indies at Gabba. Kemar Roach (up two places to 17th), Alzarri Joseph (up four places to 33rd), and Player of the Match at the Gabba Shamar Joseph (up 42 spots to equal 50th) too have taken giant strides in the rankings.

Following their 28-run victory in the first Test in Hyderabad, England square off against India in the second Test at Visakhapatnam, starting Friday (February 2). However, the series between Australia and West Indies ended all square at 1-1, with the two teams set to battle it out in the white-ball leg of the tour, starting with the ODIs on the same day.
