Virat Kohli climbs to No 2 in ICC Test rankings
Indian skipper Virat Kohli has moved up three places to grab second position in the latest ICC Test rankings for batsmen after registering his career-best score in the third and final Test against Sri Lanka, which ended in a draw.
Kohli’s first-innings knock of 243 was followed with 50 as he finished with 610 runs in the series, which India won by 1-0.
Though 45 points separate the Indian skipper from Australia captain Smith, Kohli would be eyeing the chance of reaching the zenith in all three formats since he is the current number one in ODIs and T20Is.
In the latest rankings, England captain Joe Root is third with 879 points while India’s Cheteshwar Pujara is fourth with 873 points.
