Windies captain Jason Holder has made notable upward movement in the ICC Test Player Rankings after a fine all-round effort in the Bridgetown Test, which his side lost by four wickets as the three-match series ended in a 1-1 draw on Tuesday. Holder has moved up 10 places to take the 54th position among batsmen after scores of 74 and 15, while his impressive match haul of 9/60 has lifted him 11 places to a career-best 25th position among bowlers. The 26-year-old from Barbados has also moved up three slots to take the sixth position in the all-rounders’ list.

Holder’s team-mate Shane Dowrich has gained 14 places to take the 51st position among batsmen after scores of 71 and 16, while several Sri Lanka players have advanced in the rankings after their team became the first from Asia to win a Test match at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.

Niroshan Dickwella has gained three places to reach 37th position after scores of 42 and six, while Dilruwan Perera’s 34 runs in the match, including a fighting 23 not out that anchored the chase, has helped him move up by two slots to take 85th position.

Among their bowlers, stand-in captain Suranga Lakmal has gained one slot to reach a career-best 28th position after picking five wickets in the match, while Lahiru Kumara (up 10 places to 41st) and Kasun Rajitha (up 27 places to 44th) have also made notable gains.

Sri Lanka and the Windies have retained their sixth and ninth positions in the ICC Test Team Rankings, but the Windies now have the chance to move ahead of Bangladesh by winning an upcoming two-Test series against them.
