Kagiso Rabada returns to top of ICC Test Rankings

Dubai: Kagiso Rabada’s 11 wickets in the second Test have earned him the top spot in the latest ICC Test Rankings for Bowlers. He also crossed the 900 rating points mark in the rankings after the Man of the Match award performance.

The showing helped South Africa beat Australia by five wickets in Port Elizabeth to level the series at 1-1. He has thus beaten James Anderson at the pinnacle of the rankings.

Rabada is now 15 points ahead of the England bowler at 902 points. He is only the fourth South Africa player to breach the mark after Vernon Philander, Shaun Pollock and Dale Steyn.

Among other gainers from South Africa’s win at St George’s Park, AB de Villiers’ scores of 126* and 28 took him five places forward into seventh place in the Test Rankings for Batsmen. Steve Smith continues to lead the ranking followed by Virat Kohli in second.

Among the teams, India cannot be beaten at the top spot and have already been presented with the ICC Test Championship Mace with a $1 million prize money. With the April 3 cut-off date, South Africa are assured of the second prize of $500,000 with the third and fourth place still up for grabs and prize money of $200,000 and $100,000, respectively.
