ICC Test rankings: Kasigo Rabada among the top three with Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah in 10th

After an outstanding effort against New Zealand, Rabada has climbed into the top three test bowler rankings.

The greatest mover in the Test rankings was South African fast Kagiso Rabada, who jumped three places to third after a strong performance against New Zealand hosts. Rabada took 10 wickets in the two-match series, including a brilliant 5/60 in the first innings of the second Test, which helped the Proteas to a crucial 198-run victory. Kagiso Rabada was named Player of the Match for his eight wickets in the game, which he combined with a useful performance of 47 to propel him to third place among Test bowlers. Only Pat Cummins and R Ashwin are presently ahead of him.

Kagiso Rabada is the most intriguing South African prospect to emerge in the post-No. 1 Test ranking era. Rabada had already established himself as a potential attacking leader before he turned 21.


As South Africa came closer to levelling the two-match Test series against New Zealand at Hagley Oval, Kagiso Rabada put on an exceptional all-round performance with both the bat and the ball.

At the Indian Premier League auction, Kagiso Rabada was purchased by the Punjab Kings for a whopping  INR 9.25 cr .
