ICC Test rankings: Australia at top; India at third

After defeating England, the Australian team moved India down from the top of the Test rankings after beating England 4-0 in the Ashes series, even as the Virat Kohli-led side squandered a 1-0 lead to go down against South Africa. Australia is three ahead of India in the rankings with 119 points.

After a 1–2 series loss in South Africa, India moved to third place in the inaugural World Test Championship. New Zealand took their second spot after a 1–1 drawn series at home against Bangladesh, which included the hosts’ first defeat in all formats against Bangladesh. South Africa‘s 2-1 against India moves the host team to fifth, while the English team stood fourth after a disastrous Ashes campaign.

India played 14 Tests in 2021 and won eight of them. Last year they lost 3 Test matches, counting a heart-wrenching beat in the World Test Championship (WTC) against New Zealand. The Pakistani team slipped one place to sixth due to this while West Indies, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Ireland, Zimbabwe retained their positions. The SA tour was Virat’s last assignment as he stepped down after the series has lost to the host team.

Ahead of the T20 World Cup last year, Kohli announced his decision to step down as India’s T20I captain, and in December, he was also replaced as ODI captain by Rohit Sharma.

Virat Kohli last week astonished everyone in the world by resigning of his captaincy from the Indian Test team. After the astonishing revelation from Kohli, the player’s wife Anushka Sharma (Bollywood Actress) penned down an touching post via twitter supporting his husband. Anushka said in her post that after the defeat, many a times she saw tears in Virat’s eyes. Virat Kohli has been struggling for his form since two years and has been able to recover since then.
