Ravindra Jadeja has been ranked as the world’s top-ranked bowler and all-rounder by the International Cricket Council. Jadeja could not control his emotions and expressed his thankfulness towards M.S. Dhoni and Virat Kohli. He has left behind Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh and has become the best all rounder for the first time.

Jadeja has managed to make it to the first rank by securing 438 points, whereas Shakib has a total of 431 points and Avicharan Ashwin is in the third position with 418 points.
