<p>In the fifth and final Test of the series, India easily defeated England at Dharamsala thanks to an outstanding performance by the veteran right-armer, who claimed four wickets in the first innings and then took 36 wickets in the second.</p>
<p>Ashwin’s significant achievement enabled him to surpass colleague Jasprit Bumrah and reclaim the top spot he had earlier in the year, according to an ICC statement.</p>
<p>After smashing a century in Dharamsala, Rohit moved up five spots to sixth position, within 108 rating points of Kane Williamson, the top-ranked Test batsman.</p>
<p>After an outstanding individual series against Ben Stokes’ team, Shubman Gill (up 11 ranks to equal 20th) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (up two spaces to eighth) set new career-best ratings.</p>
<p>After taking six wickets in the second Test against New Zealand in Christchurch, Bumrah and Australian seamer Josh Hazlewood shared second place.</p>
<p>Kuldeep Yadav, Ashwin’s partner, rose to 16th overall and achieved a new career-high rating after his impressive performance against England, which included seven wickets and Player of the Match honors.</p>
<p>Matt Henry of New Zealand advanced to a career-best position as well, moving up six positions to 12th.</p>
<p>India’s spinner Ravindra Jadeja maintained a significant lead over Ashwin in the revised Test all-round rankings, with two notable changes: Australia captain Pat Cummins moved up two slots to eighth place, and Henry moved up six spots to eleventh.</p>
