West Indies off-spinner, Rahkeem Cornwall has made some strides in the International Cricket Council (ICC) bowling rankings following his outstanding performance in the inaugural one-off Test against Afghanistan recently.

Cornwall, 26, has been rewarded for his 10-wicket haul by jumping 63 places in the bowling rankings to 47th.

He claimed l0 for 121 as West Indies crushed Afghanistan by nine wickets inside three days in Lucknow, India.

Cornwall’s effort in only his second Test following his debut last August in the Caribbean, saw him become the first West Indies spinner to claim a 10-wicket match haul on the subcontinent.

Meanwhile, batsman Sharmarh Brooks also moved up the batting rankings from 68 places to 62nd following his excellent 111 in the first innings — his maiden Test century, in his third outing.
