India set to move on top

The historic triumph against world champions Australia at Perth has assured India a rise to the second place in the ICC Test rankings regardless of how the fourth and final Test in Adelaide pans out for the resurgent visitors.

Apart from this, Anil Kumble’s men have another reason to smile as all their top performers in the match have moved up in the individual rankings.


After shinning with both bat and ball, Irfan Pathan has has broken into the top 20 of Test bowlers chart released on Sunday.

The Baroda pacer, who scored 28 and 46 with the bat besides claiming 5-117 in Perth, climbed six places to 19th to join Kumble, who is unchanged at sixth, and an injured Zaheer Khan (13th) in the top 20.

If the final Test in Adelaide starting January 24 ends in a draw, India will move two rating points ahead of third-placed Sri Lanka.
