India’s young sensation Yashasvi Jaiswal’s meteoric rise continues on and off the field. Jaiswal, who is having a record-breaking series against England, has achieved another career-high in the ICC rankings after the latest update on the ICC website.

Following his knocks of 73 and 37 in the fourth Test in Ranchi, Jaiswal has now jumped two more spots in the ICC rankings for batters and has reached another career-high of No.10. This is the first time that the Southpaw has breached the top 10 in the batters’ chart as he continues to rise in the tally. This makes him and Virat Kohli the only two Indian players to be ranked inside the top 10 of the ICC rankings for the batters. Kohli is on the 8th spot. 

There were more changes to the rankings as the New Zealand vs Australia series is also underway. Cameron Green, who is looking to transform into a red-ball expert, has jumped 22 places to reach the 23rd spot in the batters rankings while Glenn Phillips is up by 18 spots to reach within sight of the top 50 as he is ranked 52. 

The top-ranked batter in the rankings is still Kane Williamson, who holds the pinnacle spot despite the two outings of a duck and a nine in the first Test against Australia in Wellington. Aussie star Steve Smith is down by a place from second to third after scores of 31 and zero in the Wellington Test.

In the bowlers’ chart, the duo of Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon have climbed up in their hunt for the No.1 spot, which is currently safely held by Jasprit Bumrah. Hazlewood’s four-wicket bust in the match helped him go one place up, while Lyon’s match-haul of 10 wickets sees him rise two places to the sixth spot in the bowlers’ chart.

Jaiswal has amassed 655 runs in the four Test matches of the series against England and is already the most prolific Indian left-hander in a single series. After his first eight Tests, Jaiswal made 971 runs, which stands as the second-most by a player in his initial eight games and only behind Don Bradman.
