Fellow Englishmen Alistair Cook and Gary Ballance too have risen in the latest ICC rankings, with Cook now at rank 21 and Balance rising to rank 24.

Sri Lanka's Angelo Matthews has broken into the top three ranks for the first time in his career, thanks to an impressive outing against Pakistan. He is right behind compatriot Kumar Sangakkara and South African AB de Villiers in the ICC Test batsmen rankings.
