India pacer Jasprit Bumrah has consolidated his position in the top ten for Test bowlers in the latest ICC rankings update. He moved from tenth to ninth after playing a key role in the second innings of The Oval Test that helped India take a 2-1 series lead over England.

Among Test batters, opener Rohit Sharma’s 127 in India’s second innings keeps him at fifth. He is the highest ranked India batter, a position above sixth-placed Virat Kohli, who made 44 and 50 in The Oval Test.

India seamer Shardul Thakur also made big gains. His three wickets lifted him seven places to 49th among bowlers, while his twin fifties helped him jump 59 places to 79th among batters. England’s Ollie Pope, who made 82, also moved into the top fifty among batters.

Other England players to move upwards were Chris Woakes and Ollie Robinson in the Test bowling rankings. Woakes’ seven-wicket match haul helped him move up three places to 23rd, while Robinson jumped from 36th to 33rd.
