Meanwhile, the name of Bangladesh’s ace all-rounder Shakib al Hasan, who is serving a one-year ban with suspension of another year, was omitted from the Test ranking

Bangladesh surrendered meekly against India as they lost by an innings and 130 runs in their first match of the two-Test series but paceman Abu Jayed and batsman Mushfiqur Rahim leapfrogged in the latest Test ranking that was updated Sunday.

Bangladesh could make only 150 and 213 in two innings at Indore and Mushfiqur seemed the only man to fight with bat as he was the highest scorer both the time making 43 and 64 respectively.

That saw his ranking improved by five positions as he is now on 3oth in the batsmen’s ranking with 600 points.

On the other hand, Indian batsmen completely dominated over Bangladesh in their only innings when they declared 493/6 but one man- Rahi- stood out with ball as he grabbed 4/108. The performance helped him promoted to 62nd in the bowlers’ ranking with 257 points. 

While, Indian opener Mayank Agarwal, who was adjudged man of the match for scoring a double ton, leapfrogged to 11th while Mohammad Sami, who grabbed seven wickets in the match, entered into the top 10 for the first time as he is now on 7th in the bowlers’ list. 

Australian players Steve Smith and Pat Cummins remained their top position in batsmen and bowlers’ ranking respectively. 

Meanwhile, the name of Bangladesh’s ace all-rounder Shakib al Hasan, who is serving a one-year ban with suspension of another year, was omitted from the ranking. His name was earlier omitted from both ODI and T20I ranking as well after the suspension was imposed.
