Indian cricket star Ravindra Jadeja recently shared a notable update about his injury on social media. This comes just before the crucial selection of players for the remaining three Test matches against England. During the first Test, Jadeja sustained a hamstring injury, causing him to miss the second match, which India won convincingly in Visakhapatnam. With the series tied at 1-1, Jadeja's return from injury could greatly benefit the Indian team. In a post from the National Cricket Academy, Jadeja expressed his progress, captioning it with "Getting better #NCA."


Jadeja's Progress and Bumrah's Achievement

Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah has made history by becoming the first Indian fast bowler to claim the top spot in the ICC Test rankings. Bumrah's exceptional performance against England in Visakhapatnam earned him this prestigious position. His nine-wicket haul in the match propelled him past renowned bowlers like Pat Cummins, Kagiso Rabada, and Ravichandran Ashwin. Bumrah's outstanding display not only helped India level the series with a 106-run victory but also ended Ashwin's 11-month reign at the top. Ashwin, currently standing at 499 Test wickets, now occupies the third position in the rankings.

Ravindra Jadeja's Test Cricket Milestones


Ravindra Jadeja, the versatile Indian cricketer, has etched his name in Test cricket history with remarkable achievements. Jadeja boasts over 200 wickets and 2000 runs in Test matches, showcasing his prowess as an all-rounder. His left-arm spin and impeccable fielding have been instrumental in India's Test victories. Jadeja's consistency and contribution make him an invaluable asset in the longest format of the game.

Bumrah's Rise to Number One

Bumrah's ascent to the top spot in the ICC Test rankings signifies a remarkable achievement for the 30-year-old fast bowler. His impressive tally of 881 rating points places him ahead of his Indian counterparts, with only Ashwin (904) and Jadeja (899) boasting higher aggregates. Interestingly, Ashwin and Jadeja were jointly ranked at the top in March 2017, showcasing the dominance of India's bowling prowess during that period. Bumrah's stellar performance not only adds to India's bowling arsenal but also highlights his prowess as a world-class cricketer.


Batting Rankings Reshuffled

In addition to Bumrah's feat, the latest ICC rankings also reflect notable advancements in batting standings. Left-handed opener Yashasvi Jaiswal has surged 37 places to 29th position following his impressive double-century in the first innings. Jaiswal's exceptional performance demonstrates his potential as a promising talent in the cricketing world. Furthermore, Shubman Gill's century in the second innings has propelled him 14 places to a career-best 38th position in the rankings. Gill's steady rise in the rankings underscores his growing influence as a formidable batsman for the Indian team.


the recent developments in the world of cricket highlight both triumphs and setbacks for the Indian team. While Jadeja's recovery from injury offers a glimmer of hope for India's Test squad, Bumrah's historic achievement signifies a significant milestone in his career. The reshuffling of rankings not only reflects individual performances but also underscores the competitive landscape of international cricket.
