Out of form Amla creates room for Younus


Dubai: Out of form South African captain Hashim Amla brings good news for Younus Khan. Pakistan star batsman Younus Khan moves up to number 7 position in test ranking.

According to details India wrapped up the series 3-0. One of the main reason of South Africa’s defeat was due to captain Hashim Amla being out of form, his bat remained completely silent during the play which made him lose his rank by one position giving Younus Khan a direct chance to jump to 7th position, Misbahul Haq still remains at position 11.


Ajinkya Rahane who scored twin centuries in the Delhi test took a massive leap and jumped to 12th position. Virat Kohli gained 2 positions reaching position 14, Asad Shafiq reaches 13 position but Sarfaraz Ahmad lost 2 positions and came down to 18th position. Azhar Ali lost one position and slipped to position 20. In bowling Yasir Shah and James Anderson share position 3.

In the Proteas series Ravichandran gave a massive performance in bowling, though he stays at position 2 but by gaining 15 points he has come close to top bowler Dale Steyn and is just 4 points away from him. Saeed Ajmal without playing still remains at 13th position. Ravichandran also showed some excellent batting performance due to which he succeeded in snatching the top test all rounder title from Bangladesh’s Shakib al Hasan .
