Kagiso Rabada again at the top of the ICC Test rankings

One of Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi or Duanne Olivier, all of whom have significantly less experience than Rabada, is set to earn a spot in the starting XI, so it will be up to Rabada, Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel to take on some extra responsibility as the series moves upcountry. Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh and Mitchell Marsh have all achieved career-best rankings due to their centuries in the Sydney Test.

Kagiso Rabada has replaced James Anderson as the No 1 ranked Test bowler, after helping South Africa to a 72-run victory in the first Test against India at Newlands on Monday.

Rabada, who was one of the stars in South Africa's successful campaign in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in the UAE in 2014, returned figures of three for 34 and two for 41 against a star-studded India batting line-up.

Root earned 26 points from the fifth and final Ashes Test in Sydney, in which he was dismissed once while scoring 141 runs, but Kohli dropped 13 points after his contributions of five and 28 in Cape Town.

In the ICC Player Rankings for Test Batsmen, Australia's Steve Smith remains at the top with 947 points.England captain Joe Root leapfrogged India's Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson of New Zealand. It is a surreal feeling. Our bowling attack is very skilled as you will have seen in the past and in the last game that we played.

"Cricket is ultimately a team sport and I am thankful for the support from my team mates".

Rabada is the youngest player to reach the top of the ICC Test bowler rankings. "Its already a good start to the year for me as well as for team and hopefully we continue in putting winning performances", said Rabada. "Sometimes I feel I am bowling quickly and the speed gun says 145 or sometimes I can feel like I bowl a decent ball and the speed gun says 131", he said. Among all-rounders, Shakib Al Hasan remained on top while Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin remained in second and third spots.
