New Zealand has ended at second position as they won against West Indies and the first test against Pakistan. Williamson has been named as the new No. 1 batsman in tests after his stellar performance against West Indies and Pakistan. Their bowling has been consistent as Neil Wagner and Tim Southee are in the top 5 bowlers in tests.
India ends on third position as they didn’t have a great year in tests as they lost badly in New Zealand earlier this year. They even lost the first test against Australia in a horrific way as they registered their lowest score in tests.
