Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan has regained the top spot in ICC’s Test allrounders rankings.
Although Shakib’s points remained the same (441), India’s Ravichandran Ashwin (434) slipped behind the Tigers’ ace allrounder in the rankings published on Wednesday.
Ashwin grabbed six wickets in the last innings against Australia in the Bengaluru Test and played a key role in India’s stunning series-levelling win on Tuesday.
But his performance with the bat paled in comparison as he scored just 20 runs in the four innings he batted so far in the series.
Ashwin, who clinched a career-high 493 points towards the end of last year, went past Shakib for the top spot on December, 2015.
Shakib, who is with Bangladesh on their Sri Lanka tour, bagged one wicket in the first innings of the first Test at Galle.
The third, fourth and fifth spots remained unchanged – India’s Ravindra Jadeja, Australia’s Mitchell Stark and England’s Ben Stokes, respectively.
