Rohit Sharma has moved into the 10th spot in the ICC Test rankings after a sensational performance in the 3-match series against South Africa.
Asked to open for the first time in his Test career, Rohit Sharma hit 176, 127, 14 and 212 as India whitewashed South Africa 3-0 across Vizag, Pune and Ranchi.
Rohit Sharma has been a dominant force in the shoter formats across last few years. He is now only the second batsman after India captain Virat Kohli to figure in the top-10 in all 3 formats.
Meanwhile, Ajinkya Rahane who scored a hundred in the final test in Ranchi, has moved to No.5.
Virat Kohli, who made a career 254 not out in the second Test but did not get any other big scores in the series, retained his No.2 spot but fell behind in points. That means Steve Smith is 11 points clear of Kohli at the top of the Test rankings.
