OLD TRAFFORD: An unusually dismal performance of Lord’s Test hero Yasir Shah has brought him down to fifth spot in the ICC bowlers Test ranking, as India’s Ashwin replace his top spot with 7 for 83 against West Indies.
Yasir Shah had assumed top spot after his ten-wicket match haul in Pakistan’s victorious first Test against England at Lord’s, dropped four places to No. 5 after disappointing match figures of 1 for 266 in the second Test at Old Trafford.
Top five Test bowlers
- R Ashwin (India)

Other notable movers included Chris Woakes, who surged up ten places to No. 23 after his match figures of 7 for 108 at Old Trafford contributed to England’s 330-run win. Umesh Yadav, who took five wickets in India’s innings victory in Antigua, jumped up six places to No. 24.
