Shakib continues tenure at the top
Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has retained top spot as the best all-rounder in the ICC Test Rankings.
The ICC released a revised ranking table after the conclusion of the first Test between England and South Africa.
Shakib reached his highest rating, 443, during the recent Test against New Zealand in Christchurch. The Magura cricketer is currently rated the best all-rounder in all three formats of the game.
Moeen Ali overtook England all-rounder Ben Stokes after his brilliant performances with the bat and ball gave England a victory in the First Test against South Africa.
Moeen leapfrogged Stokes into fourth spot after his 10-wicket haul and a first innings score of 87 at Lords against South Africa. He also became the fifth fastest to reach double of 2000 runs and 100 wickets in Test Matches. Shakib is the fastest to reach that landmark and he was also the fastest to the double of 100 wickets and 1000 runs.
Shakib's latest Test exploit saw him score a century in Bangladesh's 100th Test, which was also the occasion of their first Test victory over Sri Lanka at the P Sara Oval in Colombo in March this year. He also picked up six wickets in the game.
