West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach four-wicket first innings haul in the third Test at Old Trafford last month has seen him gain one place in the latest International Cricket Council’s Test bowling rankings.

The 32-year-old fast bowler, leader of the West Indies pace attack, now lies 15th and is one of three players in the top 20.

Roach finished with four for 72 in England’s total of 369 all out, becoming the ninth West Indies bowler and the first in 26 years to reach 200 Test wickets.

The Barbadian finished the three-Test series with eight wickets as West Indies lost the final Test by 269 runs to concede the thee-match series 2-1.

Captain Jason Holder, meanwhile, dropped two places to fifth after picking up just two wickets in the final Test while fast bowler Shannon Gabriel remained unmoved at 19th after claiming just two scalps.
