#7 All Hail Sir Jadeja. After a prolific performance in the second test against Sri Lanka, Ravindra Jadeja has finally over taken Shakib Al Hasan as the No. 1 allrounder in tests. No more playing in the shadows of Ashwin, Jadeja has been the best ranked bowler in tests for quite some time now. He has been moving from strengths to strengths and there is no looking back for him. He became the fastest left arm bowler to 150 test wickets besting Mitchell Johnson’s record. Sir Jadeja is definitely making it tough for the batsman and for the bowlers. And with his fielding ability, he is turning into a nightmare for the other team.
Bad news for Ashwin fans as James Anderson over takes him to become No. 2 ranked test bowler and Ashwin slips to No. 3.
After an all - round performance from Moeen Ali he has managed to retain his 4th position as the all rounder and moved to a career best test batting rating.
Ajinkya Rahane broke into the top 10 moving up 5 places to No 6 while Pujara moved one place to No. 3 . Virat Kohli sits at No 5 while Baristow moved to No 7.
The rankings are changing ruthlessly and it is getting as interesting and competitive as ever.

Champions Trophy 2017, Match 7.
South Africa vs Pakistan. .
The Proteas managed a score of only 219 from their 50 overs after Hasan Ali troubled the batsmen. He got 3 wickets at an economy of 3. No one really got going for South Africa except David Miller. 118-6 at one point they were, after which Morris and Rabada stayed along with Miller to ensure South African bowlers got something to play for. .
Pakistan won the rain affected match by DL Method. They were 119-3 after 27 overs, needing another 100 odd runs from 23 overs. Not a very difficult equation, they would've won otherwise as well.
Hasan Ali was declared the Man of the Match for his bowling figures.
Pakistan now one win away from qualification. .
South Africa 219-8. Miller 75, Hasan 3-24
Pakistan 119-3 Babar 31*, Morkel 3-18 .
