Superstar cricketer Ravindra Jadeja has once again returned to the top spot in the ICC all-rounders ranking in Test match cricket

Jadeja has leapfrogged former West Indies skipper Jason Holder, who dropped as many as 28 points following his ordinary returns in the recently concluded two-match Test series against South Africa.

Jadeja returns to the top spot in the all-rounder rankings after having previously topped the charts in both bowlers and all-rounders charts in 2017.

The Saurashtra all-rounder, who is averaging in excess of 50 with the bat and sub-30 with the ball in Test cricket since the start of 2018, now has 386 ranking points and he is followed by Jason Holder.

England all-rounder Ben Stokes is at the third position following by off-spin all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin at the fourth.

Ravindra Jadeja is also at the 16th spot in the ICC Test Bowling Rankings while his partner-in-crime, Ashwin, is at the 2nd spot preceded by Australian pacer Pat Cummins.

That said, Ravindra Jadeja has had a disappointing outing in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship final against New Zealand.

He managed a painstaking 53-ball 15 in the first innings and followed it up with an equally disappointing 49-ball 16 in the second.

With conditions in Southampton being seamer-friendly, he didn’t have much role to play with the ball, and, as a result, he bowled just 7.2 overs in New Zealand’s first innings.
