Suryakumar Yadav, a dashing batsman who has been named vice-captain for the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka, maintained his lead among hitters despite a rare failure in Mumbai.

After scoring 85 in his team’s innings and leading Australia to a 182-run victory over South Africa in the second game of their ICC World Test Championship series in Melbourne, Steve Smith of Australia dethroned Pakistan captain Babar Azam to claim the second spot in the batters’ rankings for Test matches.

Babar, who also gained seven rating points in the most recent weekly update to achieve a career-best 882 points following scores of 161 and 14, respectively, in a high-scoring drawn first Test against New Zealand in Karachi, is just one rating point behind Smith in the latest rankings.
