Post the Ashes, Steve Smith has managed to retain his number one position in ICC Test rankings. Virat Kohli, also is placed at the same position like before just behind the Aussie star.

The Aussies

ICC has released their latest rankings list on Monday that shows Kohli with 903 rating points, is 34 points behind Smith (937). Pat Cummins also has been able to retain his number one spot as a bowler in the Test rankings. In fact, both Smith and Cummins were instrumental in their Ashes campaign against England that ended in a 2-2 draw with Australia retaining the Urn.

Matthew Wade and Mitchell Marsh from Australia are the other players to get benefitted from Ashes. Wade’s fourth Test century has helped him move up 32 places to 78th, his highest since being ranked 52nd in March 2013. On the other hand, thanks to the maiden five-wicket haul in the final Ashes Test, Marsh has moved up 20 places to reach 54th place, his best since March 2017. Whereas after returning from suspension Smith proved his worth in every possible opportunity, David Warner had a poor outing at Ashes this time. His disastrous form with the bat during the series has taken him to the 24th place, seven places down from earlier rank.

The English

In case of English players, a number of the player have been benefitted post the final Ashes Test at The Oval. Jofra Archer, after his stunning performance in Ashes 2019 has broken into the top 40 bowlers first time after grabbing six first-innings wickets. Sam Curran, the left-arm spinner has gained six slots to reach 65th position after scalping three wickets. Jos Buttler has made his way back to the world’s top 30 for the first time since January this year. Joe Denly’s career-best score of 94 has given him a career-highest 57th place whereas Rory Burns has moved up five places to 56th position after this Ashes series.
