Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin occupy top two spots in ICC Test bowling chart
22 December 2016 Current Affairs: Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja  made it a rare instance of two Indian bowlers topping the ICC Test rankings.

Jadeja’s maiden 10-wicket match haul against England in the Test match on 20 December 2016 in Chennai made him achieve the second position in the rankings. His performance earned him 66 points and brought him within eight points of Ashwin, who is grabbing the first position in the rankings.

Interestingly, it is the second time that the top two spots in the ICC Player Rankings for Test Bowlers are occupied by India players. In 1974, left-arm spinner Bishan Singh Bedi and leg-spinner Bhagwath Chandrasekhar were ranked one and two in the rankings, respectively.

Also, Jadeja gained one place in the recent rankings to reach a career-best third rank in the list of all-rounders, which is also led by Ashwin.
