Rabada is No. 1 in ICC Test rankings

Now, the reports are coming to the sad news is also coming for the Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara because they both slipped in the ICC ranking ladder.

Ravindra Jadeja, who missed the first Test due to illness, remains settled third in the bowler list and is followed by compatriot Ravichandran Ashwin, who took two wickets in the first innings and remained wicketless in the second.

Apart from Kohli and Pujara, M Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma also lost ground.

Australia batsmen have a lot to smile about in the latest rankings, which were released on Tuesday morning. Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh and Mitchell Marsh have all achieved career-best rankings due to their centuries in the Sydney Test.

Kagiso Rabada bowls in the nets during a bizhub Highveld Lions practice session.

Rabada claimed 3/34 and 2/41 in the thrilling opening Test of the series, which saw South Africa produce a sensational comeback on Monday after being bowled out for just 130 in their second innings.

Meanwhile, Anderson who entered the fifth Ashes Test in Sydney as the No 1 ranked bowler, dropped by the same number of points and is now one point behind Rabada. This 10-point swing meant the South African moved ahead of the Englishman by one point.

Rabada said: "It's special to be ranked as the No 1 Test bowler in the world". It is a surreal feeling. "It is what I have always wanted to do, hopefully, I can keep doing what I'm doing and keep trying to win games for the team".

Rabada's team-mate Philander is the other bowler inside the top-20 to make an impressive gain.

For this effort, the 22-year-old has collected five points.

Man of the match from Cape Town Test, Vernon Philander jumped from 12th position to sixth.

"It feels great to be at the top of the rankings", Rabada said on Wednesday.
