With his 96 against Sri Lanka in the first Test of the two-match series in Mohali, India’s keeper-batsman Rishabh Pant broke into the top ten of the ICC Test rankings for the first time. He has a total of 723 rating points.

Ravindra Jadeja is ranked No. 1 in the ICC Test Rankings as an All-Rounder.

Jadeja was the toast to the Indian team’s recent victory over Sri Lanka in the first Test in Mohali. He not only hit his best Test score and second century in the format for India (175*), but he also picked up a five-wicket haul in Sri Lanka’s first innings, followed by four more wickets in the second innings for a total of nine wickets in the match.

He became just the sixth hitter in Test history to achieve a century while also taking five wickets. For his efforts, he was awarded Player of the Match. Ravi Ashwin, who took 6 wickets and scored 61 runs in the first innings, shone with both the bat and the ball.
