Jadeja Becomes the No. 1 Test All rounder.
After what he did in the Mohali Test or shall we say the ‘Sir Ravindra Jadeja Test’, Jadeja has risen up the ranks to become the No. 1 all-rounder in the latest ICC Test rankings.
His all round show where he scored 175* and also picked up 9 wickets helped him dethrone Jason Holder from the number 1 spot. Jason Holder had held this position since February 2021.
“Ravindra Jadeja’s performance at India’s recent Test win against Sri Lanka in Mohali has catapulted him to the no. 1 position in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings,” the ICC said in a statement.
His batting and bowling performances also helped to improve his batting and bowling ratings in the latest ICC rankings. His batting ranking rose 17 places from 54 to 37th and his 9 wickets helped him to move up to the 17th place with the ball.
Will he continue his fine form? We certainly hope so!

S Sreesanth made his debut in October 2005 against Sri Lanka. Even though the later part of his career was spoiled due the spot-fixing scandal which ended his career early, there is no doubt to the fact that he has been a great servant of Indian cricket and one of the brightest bowlers for India in all forms of the game!

“The stint I enjoyed with Oval Invincibles in 2021 gave me a taste of how unique playing in front of a packed Kia Oval crowd really is. My aim is to entertain as much as possible this year and hopefully ensure the Club challenges for the trophy.”
West Indies vs England, 1st Test: Jonny Bairstow’s 140 redeems England after a shaky start
After winning the toss and opting to bat first, England were in all sorts of trouble at 48-4 after a very shaky start to the match and the series. But as they say – cometh the hour, cometh the man. Jonny Bairstow decided to take the onus on himself and steered England’s ship to safety and played a brilliant knock of 140 runs that included 21 boundaries.
Thanks to his fightback, England managed a score of 311-10 and are still in the game even if they are slightly behind. At the end of day 2, West Indies are 202-4 trailing by 109 runs with 6 wickets in hand.
