Virat Kohli becomes India’s most successful Test captain

Virat Kohli becomes India’s most successful Test captain

Speaking at the post-match presentation after the conclusion of the second Test, Kohli, however, did not speak much on his achievement and credited the team for the success they have achieved in the last two years.

Meanwhile, Ajinkya Rahane who stroked an unbeaten half-century in Sabina Park has returned to the top 10, moving up four places to No 7.

After Jasprit Bumrah played a crucial role in India's empathic 257-run victory over West Indies in the second Test, legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has said that the fast bowler's progress in the longest format of the game has been absolutely terrific.

India had earlier won the three-match T20I series against West Indies by 3-0 while the visitors clinched the ODI series between the two sides by 2-0.

The batsman, then Australia's captain, was banned for his part in a sandpaper ball-tampering scandal along with vice-captain David Warner and Cameron Bancroft. Hanuma Vihari has also jumped 40 places to occupy the 30th spot. He is yet to add to his 25 Test hundreds after three Tests this year.

Smith's return to top spot means Australia now have the world's number one Test batsman and bowler.

"It's really pleasing to see a guy who was tagged a T20 specialist, he came and took over the ODI scene and now Test cricket".

Kohli will have to wait until October when South Africa visit India for a Test series before he can challenge Smith again.

In the bowling rankings, India's Jasprit Bumrah has risen four places to third, after a sensational series in the Caribbean. The two now stand behind only Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood on the list.

Rohit Sharma was a man in form during the World Cup, as he scored five centuries and was hence included in India's Test squad for the West Indies tour.

Blackwood dominated a 61-run fifth-wicket partnership with Brooks but when the attacking right-hander became Bumrah's only wicket of the innings via a catch at the wicket, it signalled the beginning of the end of the West Indies resistance with Brooks' own carelessness contributing to his demise as he was run out by a direct hit from the effervescent Kohli.
