The Telegraph UK has released a ranking of the best Test captains of the year 2015 so far. The chart is being topped by the Pakistani captain, Misbah ul Haq, whereas Virat Kohli is placed as low as 7th in the ranking. 

Misbah, who revived his Test career after a decent outing in the T20 World Cup 2007, had earlier made his Test debut in 2001 against New Zealand, but was soon left out of the team. After becoming the Test captain, he has taken Pakistan Test cricket to new heights and has been the mainstay of the baating lineup, along with Younis Khan.

Virat Kohli, who replaced Dhoni as the Test captain after Dhoni decided to retire from the Test format, in the mid of the India’s tour of Australia earlier this year. Kohli is yet to prove himself as a captain in this format, but has shown his aggressive intent so far, be it with 5 bowers theory or his attitude on the field. 

Denesh Ramdin, the West Indian captain lies at the bottom of the table, no wonder as West Indies have been awful, not only in 2015 but for some years now. Clarke lies just below Kohli and the recent outing of Australia to England has had a say in this, as Australia are 3-1 down in the series, with just 1 more match to go. The impact has been such that Clarke will be retiring after the end of the series and few more Australians might have played their last Test match of their career.

Here is the complete list of the Test captains ranking

1. Misbah-ul-Haq (Pakistan)
2. Brendon McCullum (New Zealand)
3. Angelo Mathews (Sri Lanka)
4. Mushfiqur Rahim (Bangladesh)
5. Alastair Cook (England)
6. Hashim Amla (South Africa)
7. Virat Kohli (India)
8. Michael Clarke (Australia)
9. Denesh Ramdin (West Indies)
