ICC Test rankings: Virat moves to 2nd spot

Virat Kohli was rewarded for his brilliant performances against Sri Lanka in the recently concluded three-match Test series as the Indian cricket team skipper moved up three places to grab second position among batsmen in the latest ICC Test Rankings on Thursday.

Kohli, who was the top-scorer against Sri Lanka with 610 runs, scored three centuries and one fifty against the hapless visitors to guide his side to a comfortable 1-0 series win.

Kohli leapfrogged David Warner, Cheteshwar Pujara, Kane Williamson and Joe Root to claim the second spot – just 45 points behind Australia skipper Steve Smith.

However, it will tough for Kohli to take away the top spot from Smith right now as the Aussie right-hander was in a class of his own against England in the first Ashes 2017-18 Test match in Brisbane.
