Rabada regains top spot among bowlers in latest rankings
March 13 (CRICKETNMORE) - Kagiso Rabada has wrested back the top spot among bowlers in the latest ICC Test Player Rankings and also crossed the coveted 900-point mark in ratings after his player of the match effort of 11-150 helped South Africa defeat Australia by six wickets in Port Elizabeth to level their four-match series at 1-1.
Rabada, a star of South Africa’s triumph in the ICCU19 Cricket World Cup 2014, has vaulted over James Anderson to the top position and is now 15 points ahead of the England pace bowler at 902 points.
Rabada is the 23rd bowler to cross 900 points and only the fourth South Africa player to do so after Vernon Philander (highest of 912 points in 2013), Shaun Pollock (909 in 1999) and Dale Steyn (909 in 2014).
