New Delhi, April 10: India's 4-1 series win against England at home, continue to influence the ICC Test rankings for players. 

The two seasoned Indian bowlers off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and pacer Jasprit Bumrah continue to hold the top two spots of the ICC Test rankings for bowlers. Ravindra Jadeja tops the chart among all-rounders. 

Ashwin (870) is on top of the latest ICC Test Bowling Rankings, with compatriot and fast-bowling spearhead Bumrah and Australia speedster Josh Hazlewood sharing second position through 847 points each. 

In all-rounder rankings, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja (444 points) is well ahead of Ashwin (322 points) to retain his number one spot.

Sri Lanka’s all-rounder duo of Kamindu Mendis and Angelo Mathews have moved up as per the recent update to the ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings after contributing to the visitors’ 2-0 series win over Bangladesh in the ICC World Test Championship series.

During Sri Lanka’s 192-run victory in second Test at Chattogram, Mendis’ scores of 92 not out and nine have resulted in him jumping 18 places to 46th position in the batters’ list. Mendis, who also won ICC Player of the Month award for March 2024, also took a three-wicket haul in the second innings, which sees him gain 46 slots and reach 117th position among bowlers.

Mathews, who enjoyed a career-high third rank in August 2014, has inched up two places to 25th after scores of 23 and 56. In what is another notable movement for a Sri Lankan batter, Kusal Mendis has progressed three places to 52nd after scoring 93 in the first innings.

Sri Lanka opener Dimuth Karunaratne has dropped a place to eighth position in the points table, with New Zealand's Kane Williamson remaining the top-ranked Test batter heading via 859 points. He maintains a 35-point margin over England's Joe Root (824 points), with Pakistan’s Babar Azam and Daryl Mitchell (768) sharing the third spot.

In the bowling rankings, pacer Asitha Fernando has moved up seven places to 27th after a four-wicket haul in the first innings. Fast-bowler Vishwa Fernando is up from 43rd to 41st with three wickets in the match, while pacer Lahiru Kumara has gone from 46th to 44th place after finishing with six wickets in Chattogram.
