In the latest ICC Test batsman’s rankings a new number 1 player has been announced. Steven Smith has surpassed Kumar Sangakra with some brilliant performances with bat in recent times. He is Australian batsmen to be ranked number 1 player after Micheal Clarke in 2012.

He scored 199 and 54 not out in the second Test match against West Indies where Australia won the match with ease. Steven Smith has been in excellent form in the past 4 to 5 months and looked unstoppable. The other batsmen include AB de Villers followed by Hashim Amla, Angelo Mathews, Younis Khan, Joe Root, Kane Willamson, Misbah Ul Haq and David Warner. It is a disappointing that no Indian batsmen feature in this list.
