Shakib Al Hasan, the suspended Bangladeshi all rounder has now overtaken India’s Ravichandran Ashwin as the the number one Test all-rounder. According to the newly released International Cricket Council (ICC)  ratings for Test all-rounders, Shakib got 364 points, followed by Ashwin, who got 357 points.

Shakib, who last played a Test match against Sri Lanka in February this year, is currently facing a suspension by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) from all forms of cricket due to disciplinary reasons. It will be interesting to see the current ICC ratings will influence BCB to change it’s decision or not.
