In a monumental moment for Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, he has risen to claim the top spot among all-rounders in the ICC Test Rankings. Jadeja has climbed a place to the top as per the latest updated rankings, displacing Windies's Jason Holder.

Meanwhile, veteran Indian all-rounder, Ravichandran Ashwin remains in the fourth spot. However, as he is currently taking part in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship 2019-21 final against New Zealand in Southampton, he is expected to edge closer to the third spot, presently occupied by Englishman Ben Stokes.
