Rishabh Pant's rise in Test cricket continues as the India wicketkeeper-batsman has climbed to his career-best ranking of No. 7, moving up 7 places in the latest ICC Test Batting Rankings updated on Wednesday. Pant's 747 rating points are the joint-15th highest by any India batsman, and the highest by a full-time Test wicketkeeper from his country.


Meanwhile, India captain Virat Kohli has retained the 5th spot on the ICC Test Batting Rankings but the skipper's rating points of 814 is his lowest since November 2017.


Rohit Sharma, who became the first opener to reach 1000 runs in the ongoing cycle of World Test Championships, climbs a spot and shares the 7th spot along with Pant and New Zealand opener Henry Nicholls.


Rishabh Pant has had a dream run in Test cricket ever since he returned to the playing XI in the 2nd Test against Australia in Melbourne. Pant hit a counter-attacking 97 in the drawn Sydney Test and inspired India to a historic win at the Gabba where India sealed the Test series 2-1 against Australia.


Pant continued his fine run with the bat in the 4-Test series against England at home wherein he hit a match-winning 101 in the final Test, helping India come back from behind to seal the series 3-1 and book a place in the World Test Championship final.
