AB de Villiers continues to reign supreme in the ICC test rankings

AB de Villiers‘ unmatched consistency sees him retain the No.1 spot for test batsmen by a comfortable distance over Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, who recently smashed a triple century against Bangladesh last month.

Meanwhile, Australia’s man of the hour David Warner has jumped 5 places to a career-high 5th spot in the latest rankings. The man from New South Wales smashed centuries (135 and 145) in both innings of the final test at Cape Town, and earned the man of the series award for his troubles.

Warner is joined by Australian skipper Michael Clarke in the Top 10, while compatriot Ryan Harris, who took 4 for 32 to run through the South African batting lineup on the final day, also climbed to his best-ever position of 2nd place in the test bowler rankings, only behind Dale Steyn.

Outside the top 10, Steve Smith jumped five places to 12th after knocks of 84 and 36 and Faf du Plessis climbed six spots to 23rd.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Hashim Amla are 3rd and 4th with 876 and 873 rating points respectively.
