ICC Test Rankings: James Anderson Overtakes Ravindra Jadeja To Take Top Spot

ICC Test Rankings: James Anderson Overtakes Ravindra Jadeja To Take Top Spot

Prior to donning the white jersey for West Indies for the ongoing three-match Test series against England, Roach had feared that he would never manage to return to the ground or would take long to regain his bowling pace.

James Anderson shot up to the top of the International Cricket Council's rankings for bowlers in Test cricket after helping England decimate Windies in the third and final Test, which handed the hosts a 2-1 series victory at Lord's on Saturday.

Roach, meanwhile, scooped 5-72, his seventh five-for in Tests, after adding the wickets of Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow and Moeen Ali to his opening day dismissals of Alastair Cook and Mark Stoneman.

The ICC batting rankings continue to be led by the two men who will serve as captains in the upcoming Ashes series, with Australia skipper Steve Smith still in front of England's Joe Root.

He displaced India spinner Ravindra Jadeja, following the Lord's Test, in which he became the sixth player to pick up 500 Test wickets, and also returned a career-best 7 for 42.

However, with his dismissal after almost four hours at the crease, the West Indies' hopes of setting England any sort of challenging target disappeared.

McGrath (563) and Walsh (519) are the two fast bowlers with more Test wickets than Anderson (506).

"He is one of most skilful bowlers I have ever played with".

Shai Hope, whose twin hundreds were the backbone of West Indies' series-levelling win at Headingley, top-scored in this innings with 62.

"Credit must go to James Anderson". 'You've got to make the most of it when you are in rhythm, when you're not it can be a struggle'.

"Kudos to those guys for helping me out so it's all about me going out there and exhibiting what I've learnt".
