Virat Kohli becomes India's most successful Test captain

Virat Kohli becomes India's most successful Test captain

Bumrah now has a remarkable 62 wickets in just 12 Test matches and is the first bowler from Asia to have taken five-wicket hauls in Australia, England, South Africa and the West Indies.

Kemar Roach, despite a fine showing in the second innings, where he picked up three wickets and went past Wes Hall's tally of 192 Test wickets, has dropped a place in bowler's rankings, to No. 9.

India had earlier declared their second innings on 168 for four, thanks to half-centuries from Ajinkya Rahane (64 not out) and Hanuma Vihari (53 not out), the pair posting 111 in an unbroken fifth wicket stand to snuff the fight out of West Indies.

Virat Kohli became India's most successful Test captain after the team thrashed West Indies in the second match of series by 257 runs in Jamaica on Monday.

Jason Holder and his West Indies needs will need a miracle to save the second test against India. Bumrah, who was the player-of-the-series, finished with 13 wickets to his name in the two Tests. In August a year ago, while Smith was serving a 12-month ban over a ball-tampering scandal, Kohli overtook him in the standings.

The Australian No. 4 has fought his way back up the charts in his first series back from the ban, making twin centuries in the first Test against England and 92 in the second.

The Australia batsman will return to the line-up for the fourth Ashes Test, beginning at Old Trafford on Wednesday, after recovering from concussion.

"It's really pleasing to see a guy who was tagged a T20 specialist, he came and took over the ODI scene and now Test cricket".

Pat Cummins and Kagiso Rabada continued to hold the top-two spots on that table.

Kohli's next chance to challenge Smith will be in the home Test series against South Africa, starting on October 2.

In the bowling rankings, India's Jasprit Bumrah has risen four places to third, after a sensational series in the Caribbean.

Wicketkeeper Jahmar Hamilton (5) struggled to score and managed only a single run in the first hour after resuming on two, as the Windies reached reached the first drinks break on 115 for eight.
