Incidentally, the match which put Jadeja on top of the heap is also the one where he breached ICC Code of Conduct to be handed a one-Test suspension.

In the recently-concluded second Test, which India won by an innings and 53 runs, Jadeja contributed an unbeaten 70 and also took seven wickets, including a five-for.

Jadeja also gained nine places to take 51st rank among batsmen while India’s wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has attained a career-best 44th position after moving up four places.

In the bowlers’ list Ravichandran Ashwin (842 points) dropped a place to be third with Jimmy Anderson a notch below Jadeja.

Pacers Mohammad Shami (20th) and Umesh Yadav (22nd) have also made notable gains.

England all-rounder Moeen Ali has finished the series against South Africa with a career-best rank of 21 among batsmen, 18th among bowlers and fourth in the table for all- rounders.

His rise in the rankings was due to consistent performances as he became the first player to score 250 runs and take 25 wickets in a four-Test series. He was named the player of the series along with South Africa’s Morne Morkel.
