Stand-in West Indies Captain Kraigg Brathwaite has taken a heavy blow in the latest ICC Test rankings.

He has slipped eight places in the batting charts and is currently 26th. He is, however, the highest-ranked West Indies batsman.

Brathwaite, who was the stand-in captain in the first Test against Bangladesh at Chittagong recently made 13 and eight, which West Indies lost by 64 runs, to fall behind in the 0-1 two-match series.

The 25-year-old has suffered a dip in form of late, managing just 26 runs from four innings on the October tour of India, which West Indies lost 2-0.

Teammate Roston Chase also slipped to in the rankings to 37th, while Shai Hope dropped to 47th, after making one and three in Chittagong.
