ICC Test Rankings: Pak bowlers Hasan, Nauman and Shaheen attain career-best positions

ICC

In the latest ICC men’s Test Player Rankings released yesterday, Pakistan bowlers Hasan Ali, Nauman Ali, and Shaheen Afridi achieved career-best positions after becoming the first trio from their country to grab five-wicket hauls in the same match.

Ravichandran Ashwin is the only Indian bowler to feature in the top 10 ICC rankings in the Test format and he has held on to his second spot.

Jasprit Bumrah has also held on to his 11th position.

Pak speedster Hasan has moved up  six places to the 14th position.  Shaheen is up  nine places to 22nd and Nauman has gone from 54th to the 46th position after registering only the sixth instance of three bowlers from one side finishing with five-wicket hauls in the same Test.

It was the first such instance in 28 years, the last one being when Australia’s Paul Reiffel, Shane Warne, and Tim May achieved the feat against England at Edgbaston in 1993.
