In a remarkable feat, Star India pacer Jasprit Bumrah achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first Indian pacer to secure the top spot in the Test bowling rankings. He surpassed his teammate Ravichandran Ashwin, who slipped to the third position. Bumrah’s stellar performance in the second Test in Vizag propelled him to the summit with 881 points. He saw a significant jump from his previous fourth-place ranking of 825 points.

This elevation in Bumrah’s rankings comes on the back of his exceptional display in the second Test between India and England at Visakhapatnam. The 30-year-old speedster played a pivotal role in India’s victory, claiming nine wickets in the match, including a remarkable six-wicket haul in the first innings. This outstanding performance not only secured India’s win but also propelled Bumrah to the top of the rankings, setting a new personal record for him.

With a total of 15 wickets in the ongoing series against England, Jasprit Bumrah leads the wicket-taker’s chart, showcasing his dominance and effectiveness as a premier bowler. His match-winning contributions in the second Test allowed India to level the five-match series at 1-1, bouncing back from a 28-run loss in the first Test in Hyderabad.

Ravichandran Ashwin slips to 3rd position due to mediocre performance

On the other hand, Ravichandran Ashwin, who previously held the top position with 853 points, experienced a drop in form, managing only nine wickets across two Tests against England. This decline resulted in him slipping to the third spot in the rankings. Ravindra Jadeja, who missed the second Test due to a hamstring injury, also faced a dip, falling two places to the ninth slot, rounding off the Indian representation in the top 10 bowlers in the Test rankings.

As Bumrah continues to spearhead India’s bowling attack with consistency and excellence, His ascent to the pinnacle of the Test bowling rankings underscores his significance to the team. It also solidifies his reputation as one of the premier pacers in international cricket. However, he is likely to be rested for the upcoming third Test between India and England.
