In all three formats, India scored in first


India is now the top-ranked side across all three formats after winning the first Test against Australia in Nagpur, according to the ICC. After defeating New Zealand 3-0 in January, India just surpassed their No. 1 T20I position to take the top spot in ODI rankings.

To maintain their lead in the Test rankings and advance in their quest to make the World Test Championship final in June, they must win the second Test against Australia in Delhi, which begins on February 17. To get to the final, India must win the series 3-1 or 3-0.

In Nagpur, India defeated Australia by an innings and 132 runs, thanks in large part to R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Rohit Sharma, all of whom saw increases in their respective rankings.

Ashwin moved up to second place in the Test bowling rankings after taking eight wickets in the game, behind only Pat Cummins by 21 rating points.

In Nagpur, Jadeja, who also took seven wickets and made a critical 70, maintained his lead as the best all-around player and rose four positions to 16th place among bowlers.

With his highest Test score of 84, Axar Patel, who only had one wicket in the game, proved essential for India with the bat. He moved up six spots, to seventh place, in the all-rounders standings thanks to the inning.

Due to his 120-point performance, which helped India reach 400 on a difficult surface, Rohit has moved up two slots to ninth place among Test bats.

Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith, who were perhaps Australia’s finest batsmen in a terrible batting performance, kept their positions at the top and bottom of the batting statistics, respectively, although openers Usman Khawaja and David Warner dropped positions following two bad performances in Nagpur.

Warner slid six spots to 20th, while Khawaja lost two spots from eighth to tenth.
