India captain Virat Kohli rescaled the summit of the ICC Test rankings for batsmen after his Man of the Match performance in Trent Bridge. He has collected a career-best 937 rating points and is one point short of breaking into the top 10 batsmen in rankings history.
Donald Bradman is No. 1 with a rating of 961 points in February 1948 followed by Smith (947), Len Hutton (945), Jack Hobbs and Ricky Ponting (both on 942), Peter May (941), and Gary Sobers, Clyde Walcott, Vivian Richards and Kumar Sangakkara (all on 938 points).
Kohli is placed 11th on that list after his knocks of 97 and 103 in Nottingham Test. India beat England by 203 runs to make the series scoreline 2-1 with two Tests to play. He had previously reached the top of the rankings after the first Test at Edgbaston, before ceding it to Steven Smith after low scores in the second Test at Lord's.
Nottingham Test also helped Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah make a big move in the ranking. Pandya moved up 23 places in the bowlers' rankings to No. 51 after taking five wickets in six overs on the second day at Trent Bridge. He occupies the same spot on the batsmen's charts after his second-innings fifty to set up India's declaration. Those performances have placed him at No. 17 on the all-rounders' list.
Bumrah, who sat out the first two Tests with an injury, took a five-wicket haul in England's second innings and is now at No.37 among the bowlers after just four Tests.For England, the biggest move was made by Jos Buttler, whose second-innings 106 took him up 22 places to be No.47 among the batsmen.
