West Indies player, Shrivnarine Chanderpaul, has lost his position as the world’s number one test batsman, following the release of the latest International Cricket Council player Rankings today.
Chanderpaul has been replaced by Australia captain Michael Clarke, who has predictably reclaimed the top spot after the completion of test matches in Hobart and Nagpur.
Clarke, who entered the Hobart Test trailing number-one ranked Shivnarine Chanderpaul by just one ratings point, now leads the West Indian by nine points.
England’s Captain Alastair Cook, who was the other contender for the top spot, remained in fourth position after losing 38 ratings points, following his double failure in the Nagpur Test, which ended in a draw.
There were also some gains in the rankings for two other West Indian batsmen Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo.
Bravo moved two places up to number 20, while Samuels eased up a notch to number 19 in the rankings for test batsmen.
The bowlers' table is still headed by South Africa's Dale Steyn.
Pacer Kemar Roach is the highest ranked West Indies test bowler at 12th spot.
