ICC Ranking: The International Cricket Council(ICC) has announced the latest edition of the player rankings that witnessed significant deviation in the Test and ODI rankings in view of the ongoing bilateral series. Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne has been crowned as the No. 1 Test batsman as he has edged past England’s Joe Root.
With this, Marnus also equals Indian legend Virat Kohli’s record by equaling his tally in the all-time test rankings. Labuschagne (937) is now the fourth highest-rated all-time batsman behind veteran stars Don Bradman (961), Steve Smith (947) and Ricky Ponting (942). Notably, four batsmen ahead of Marnus are just a point ahead of him and with plenty of careers left, Labuschagne will surely surpass the contenders.
