Steve Smith may get a big shock in ICC's ongoing Test rankings.
In the 3-match ODI series against South Africa cricket team which started on October 2, the current captain is going to prove very important for Virat Kohli. In fact, Kohli had been the No. 1 batsman in the Test rankings for almost a year, but after a tremendous performance in the Ashes series last month, Steve Smith left behind Kohli and became the No. 1 batsman.
Indian captain Virat Kohli currently has 903 rating points at number two in the Test rankings. The current captain Kohli needs 35 more rating points to leave behind cricketer Smith.
If the current captain Kohli performs well in the upcoming Test cricket series, he can comfortably get these rating points and can become the number one Test batsman again.
Rohit Sharma, who played a crucial role in India's victory by scoring 303 runs in the first Test, has made a quantum leap in this ranking, before this Test, Rohit was present at 53rd position, but in this Test, he scored 36 places while performing brilliantly. Now, he has come in 17th place. Let us tell you that if Rohit performs the same way in the other two matches of the series, then he can also reach the number 1 position.
