ICC Test Rankings: Marnus Labuschagne reclaims No. 1 rank from Joe Root, Virat Kohli gains a place

Australia batter Marnus Labuschagne reclaimed the no. 1 position in ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings as he toppled England batter Joe Root to grab the place.

The right-handed batter reaped the reward for scoring a double ton and a century in the Perth Test against West Indies. It earned him 50 rating points.

Labuschagne was just two points behind Root before the ICC released the latest rankings. Root, meanwhile, slipped to fourth place due to a dry run behind Steve Smith and Babar Azam. Smith moved up to second place thanks to his double ton against West Indies.

In June, Root toppled Labuschagne from the numero uno position after he slammed seven successive hundreds against New Zealand.

Indian batters Rishabh Pant (fifth) and Rohit Sharma (ninth) retained their positions. However, Kohli moved up a place to occupy the 11th place.

The bowlers’ ranking is topped by Pat Cummins, while Ravindra Jadeja led the all-rounder’s chart.
