India captain Rohit Sharma re-entered the top 10 batters list of the ICC men’s Test player rankings after his 10th century while Ravichandran Ashwin, following his 12-wicket haul in the series opener against West Indies, strengthened his numero position among bowlers. Rohit is the highest ranked Indian batter. The skipper climbed three slots to reach number 10 on the list on 751 rating points after India beat hosts West Indies by an innings and 141 runs in opening Test of the two-match series in Roseau, Dominica.

India’s debutant, 21-year-old Yashasvi Jaiswal, also made a splash in Dominica with a scintillating 171 off 387 deliveries to enter the batters list for the first time in 73rd place on 420 points.

Jaiswal’s impressive knock was the highest score by an Indian opener on debut away from home and the third-highest score for an Indian opener on debut.
