West Indies wicket-keeper Shane Dowrich, who scored a century in the First Test against Sri Lanka at the Queen’s Park Oval, in Trinidad recently has pushed him up 20 spots in the latest ICC Test batting rankings. In the latest rankings released last week, Dowrich, 25, had improved his position to 66th, one of the biggest movers.
The right-hander scored 125 not out — his second Test century — to put West Indies out of trouble in the first innings at the Oval to help set up an emphatic West Indies 226 victory on the final day after lunch.
Opener Kraigg Braithwaite, who failed twice in the Port of Spain Test, has slipped to 17th but is the highest-ranked West Indies batsman in the rankings topped by Australian stroke-maker Steve Smith.
In the bowling rankings, part-time off-spinner Roston Chase’s second innings haul of four for 15 has earned him a four-place jump to 51st.
Fast bowler Shannon Gabriel has moved up one place to 23rd as the highest ranked Windies bowler while Holder also jumped one place to 35th.
England seamer Jimmy Anderson is at the top of the table.
