Ashwin Loses Top Spot In ICC Test Bowlers’ Rankings

January 2016, Sports

In Brief:


Indian off-spinner R Ashwin lost his top position in the ICC Test rankings, displaced by England pacer Stuart Broad, even as Ajinkya Rahane remained the country’s top-ranked batsman at joint 10th in the latest list.
Ashwin, however, continued to top the all-rounders’ list, followed by Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan.
Broad unseated Ashwin after producing a Man of the Match performance in the Johannesburg Test, which has also confirmed that India will replace South Africa as the top-ranked Test side when the table is updated at the end of Centurion Test.
Broad had entered the Johannesburg Test in third position on 853 points but, after figures of two for 82 and six for 17, the 29-year-old earned 27 points to leapfrog Ashwin and South Africa’s Dale Steyn into the top position. Broad now sits on 880 points and leads the India spinner by nine points.
Broad is the first England bowler since Steve Harmison to top the ICC Player Rankings for Test Bowlers. Harmison had reached the top in 2004 and stayed there for 120 days. Before Harmison, Ian Botham had achieved the number-one ranking in 1980.
