Anderson reclaims number one spot


James Anderson moved back above Ravichandran Ashwin to number one in the ICC Test bowling rankings following England's win over Pakistan.

Anderson, England's leading Test wicket taker, claimed match figures of 4-85 as England wrapped up victory by 141 runs, an impressive effort having been 103 behind after the first innings.

That performance earned Anderson six points, while India off-spinner Ashwin's match figures of 6-166 against the lower-ranked West Indies saw him lose six points, meaning the England seamer is now 12 ahead.

Meanwhile, Australia's Mitchell Starc has leapt eight spots to a career-high seventh following his 11 wickets against Sri Lanka in Galle.
