Kohli’s 20 points gain in Hyderabad means he now trails Smith by 38 points. Joe Root is ranked third, 47 points behind the India batsman, while Kane Williamson of New Zealand is fourth. Interestingly, the top four batting positions are occupied by the national captains who have previously represented their countries in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cups.
Apart from Kohli, India’s Murali Vijay and Wriddhiman Saha, and Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim also scored centuries in Hyderabad, which are reflected in the latest MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings.
