Jasprit Bumrah achieves unique feat in ICC rankings

07 February, 2024 16:30

After an inspirational outing in the second Test against England, Jasprit Bumrah has achieved a remarkable feat in Test rankings.

The right-armer become the first pacer from India to claim the top on the latest ICC Men’s Test Bowler rankings.

Bumrah bagged top spot after impressive match figures of 9/91 during his side’s series-equalling 106-run win over England in the second Test in Vizag.

“The nine-wicket haul saw Bumrah earn Player of the Match honours in the second Test and climb three places on the latest Test rankings for bowlers to claim top spot from teammate Ravichandran Ashwin,” the ICC said in a press release.

‘Ashwin – who has held the premier ranking since March last year – managed just three wickets for India in that same match and drops two places to third on the updated rankings for Test bowlers, with South Africa pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada maintaining his place in second despite sitting out the Proteas’ Test series in New Zealand.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Babar Azam also held onto his top spot in the ODI batters rankings in front of India trio Shubman Gill (second), Virat Kohli (third) and Rohit Sharma (fourth), while Abbott rose 52 places to equal 18th on the list for all-rounders after also contributing 69 runs from one innings with the bat against the West Indies.
