Smith reclaims No. 1 spot in Test rankings

Virat Kohli Praises Hanuma Vihari for His Heroics in India vs West Indies Test Series 2019 Says ‘Dressing Room Is Calm When Vihari Bats

He didn't bat in the second innings after concussion following a blow to the head from a Jofra Archer bouncer, and Marnus Labuschagne replaced him in the second innings. He has a chance to extend that lead in the fourth Ashes Test, starting at Manchester on Wednesday.

India, having earlier secured a 299-run first innings lead after disposing of West Indies for 117, lead overall by 372 runs.

Jasprit Bumrah was hailed as "the most complete bowler in world cricket" by Virat Kohli following India's Test series success against West Indies.

Elsewhere on the batting charts, India's Ajinkya Rahane returned to the top 10, rising four places to No.7, after following up his half-century and hundred in Antigua with another useful half-century in Jamaica.

Smith first climbed top of the ICC batting rankings in December 2015 and stayed there until August 2018 when he was passed by Kohli during his 12-month ban from cricket for his role in the Newlands ball-tampering scandal.

Smith is back in form after making two centuries in the first Test against England and hitting 92 in the second Test, giving him an average of 63.24 in five-day cricket.

The Australian, who won the French Open earlier this year, was beaten in straight sets by Wang Qiang , the 18th seed from China . Wang took full advantage to reach her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, where she awaits Serena Williams or Petra Martic .

Smith's return to top spot means Australia now have the world's number one Test batsman and bowler.

Sharma, who didn't get to play either of the Tests, would now be looking forward to the upcoming T20I series against South Africa at home.

In ICC Test rankings for bowlers, Bumrah, who is now the No.1 ODI bowler, continued his impressive run to climb up to the third spot with a career-best 835 rating points.

Australia's Pat Cummins (908 points) tops the standings, followed by South Africa'a Kagiso Rabada (851) and Bumrah (835), with Holder and James Anderson tied for fourth (814).

Exemplary seamer Kemar Roach narrow missed out on a hat-trick but beleaguered West Indies were left needing a virtual miracle on today's penultimate day in order to escape another heavy defeat to India, in the final Test at Sabina Park. Bumrah, who was the player-of-the-series, finished with 13 wickets to his name in the two Tests.
