Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has now become the top-ranked all-rounder in Test cricket. Jadeja produced a stellar performance with both bat and ball in the 1st Test match between India and Sri Lanka in Mohali. While Jadeja scored a scintillating 175* off just 228 deliveries with the willow, the left-arm spinner scalped nine wickets in the match to enable the Indian side pummel their opposition by an innings and 222 runs.

The 33-year-old also won the Player-of-the-Match award for his sensational all-round performance against the Sri Lankan side. As a result, Jadeja is now occupying the top spot in the all-rounder’s category with 406 points to his name, while West Indies’ Jason Holder is placed at the 2nd spot in the table. Apart from Jadeja, legendary off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also finds his name in the top 10 list, and the 35-year-old is stationed at the 3rd place in the rankings.
