Cheteshwar Pujara continued to be the lone Indian batsman in the top 10 despite losing a place to be at eighth spot while opener Murali Vijay, who hit 146 and 52 in drawn first Test against England, jumped up 12 places to 30th in the latest ICC Test rankings issued on Monday.

Vijay is now India’s fourth highest-ranked batsman after Pujara, Virat Kohli (13th) and captain Mahenda Singh Dhoni (27th) in the chart headed by South Africa’s AB de Villiers. Kohli, who flopped in the two innings of the first Test against England, lost three places in the latest list.

Meanwhile, Joe Root became England’s highest-ranked batsman after hitting the fourth century of his career against India. He has been rewarded with a jump of 10 places, which has put him in a career-high 16th position. Ian Bell is England’s second highest-ranked batsman in 20th position, while captain Alastair Cook is in 25th spot.

In the ICC Test bowlers’ chart, Indian seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and England’s Stuart Broad are the biggest movers. Kumar picked up five for 82 in England’s only innings and that has allowed him to break into the top 50 for the first time in his career. He now sits in 46th spot after jumping 27 places.

Broad returned match figures of four for 103, which has helped him rise four places to 10th position. Ravichandran Ashwin is the only Indian to figure in the top-10 after losing a place to be at eighth. Pragyan Ojha (14th) and Zaheer Khan (20th) are the other Indians to be in the top-20 bowlers’ rankings, which continues to be headed by Dale Steyn. In the all-rounders’ list, India’s Ravindra Jadeja retained his number two position.
