Now, he has a rating of 673 which is the highest for an Indian wicketkeeper. The previous best of 662 was of MS Dhoni.

His 17th rank is also the joint highest for a specialist Indian wicketkeeper along with Farokh Engineer. Dhoni’s highest rank in his Test career was 19th. Pant scored 350 runs in 4 Tests that included an unbeaten 159 in the last Test in Sydney. Prior to the series, Pant was ranked 59 and now, he has gained 42 places.

Another major gainer from the India-Australia Test series is Cheteshwar Pujara. India’s No.3 batsman scored 521 runs at an average of 74.43. He made 3 centuries and also ended up as the Player of the Series. As a result, Pujara has moved up from No.4 to No.3.
