Pakistan veteran middle-order batsman Younus Khan has returned to the top five of the ICC Player Rankings for Test Batsmen after belting his sixth career double-century which helped his side to record an impressive 10-wicket victory over England in the fourth and final Test of the series at The Oval.
Younus, who was 11th before the start of the last Test against England, scored a mammoth 218 in the first innings at The Oval to climbed six spots to the fifth position.
Lesson to learn from Wahab’s cricket career
He started the series in the fifth position but was dropped out of the top 10 following poor first three matches of the series.
Pakistan’s pace bowling pair of Wahab Riaz and Sohail Khan have also improved their ranking. Left-armer Wahab has gained six slots to reach 27th after grabbing five wickets at The Oval, while Sohail’s six wickets during that Test has seen him jump 21 places to 41st rank.
