Dubai: India maintained their number one status in the latest ICC Test Rankings but lost a couple of rating points after drawing two matches in their 1-0 series triumph over a lower-ranked West Indies.

Leading the points table, India now have 126 points while the seventh-placed West Indies (88) have gained two rating points despite losing the three-match series which concluded yesterday.

South Africa (117) is the second-placed team, followed by England (116).

Among the players, Harbhajan Singh has moved one place to seventh. The offie took 11 wickets and interestingly replaced teammate and Man-of-the series Ishant Sharma, who had an impressive tally of 22 wickets in three matches.

The off-spinner took six wickets in the final Test and in the process passed the 400-wicket mark.

Praveen Kumar broke into the top 50 for the first time. The medium-pace bowler from Uttar Pradesh walked away with four wickets in the final Test and is now ranked 42nd.

West Indies fast bowler Fidel Edwards achieved his career-best ranking 16th, a gain of two places. He holds the 16th place jointly with South Africa spinner Paul Harris.

The top three remain unchanged with Dale Steyn of still leading the way ahead of Graeme Swann in second position.

Among the batsmen, West Indies’ Chanderpaul rose to seventh following his match-saving 116 not out in the second innings at Roseau. (PTI)
