Indian Ravindra Jadeja is the world number 1 in universal cricket tests, according to the latest ranking of the International Cricket Council (ICC). The southern paw replaced the West Indian Jason Holder from the top and has two rating points ahead of Barbados with 386.
England’s Ben Stokes retained third place with 377 points, while R. Ashwin was fourth on the list with 353 points.
The 32-year-old Jadeja, who missed four Test Series matches at home to England, is playing in the current World Cup final in Southampton against New Zealand. He made 15 in the first passes and took a wicket.
Jadea last played a test in January in Sydney against Australia, during which he was injured.
Holder’s unimpressive performance as a station wagon in a duel series of Tests against South Africa seems to have seen him slip out of the rankings. Holder collected 34 in four assists averaging 8.25 and picked just six wickets.
Bangladesh Shakib Al Hasan (338), Kyle Jamieson of New Zealand (276), Australians Mitchell Stark (275) and Pat Cummins (249), New Zealand Colin de Grand (243) and the Englishman Chris Wakes (229) finish in the top 10 in the list of the best universalists
