Dubai: Dec 4, 2012
 
Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha was the best-placed Indian at number five in the latest ICC Test Rankings issued on Tuesday, while Sachin Tendulkar was the only batsman to have found a place in the top-20 list.
 
Ojha dropped a place with 767 points, and so was Sachin Tendulkar, who was placed 18th with 669 points.
 
Seamer Zaheer Khan was ranked 14th in the bowlers’ list with 652 points.
 
Pujara, who dropped a place, was ranked 21st with 665 points.
 
South Africa’s Hashim Amla moved within four ratings points of becoming the number-one ranked batsman.
 
Amla, who was declared man of the match in the Perth Test, moved up two places to third position with 875 ratings points following his match-winning knock of 196 in the second innings of the series-decider.
 
West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul is now the top-ranked batsman with 879 ratings points. Australia captain Michael Clarke, who made five and 44, slipped to second after regaining the number-one spot last week at the conclusion of the Adelaide Test.
 
Among the bowlers, Dale Steyn continued to lead the table. Vernon Philander moved up a place to jointly hold the second spot with Sri Lanka spinner Rangana Herath.
 
South Africa fast bowler Morne Morkel also moved up a spot to seventh.
 
For Australia, fast bowler Mitchell Johnson returned to the top-20 after moving up three places to 20th position.
 
The biggest mover in the bowlers’ table is Mitchell Starc who now moved up 21 places to 53rd.
 
Jacques Kallis continued to head the all-rounders’ table followed by Shakib Al Hasan in second and Shane Watson in third place.
