Big gain for Virat Kohli in ICC rankings

The Indian skipper, who was declared Man of the Series against Sri Lanka, has moved three places higher in the recently released ICC Test rankings. He is currently sitting at the number two position, one place behind Aussies skipper Steve Smith.

Virat Kohli scored 610 runs in the series, which India won 1-0. He was in top form, scoring runs every now and then. The right hand batsman has been rested from the upcoming ODIs and T20 series against the rainbow nation on account of rest and tired body.

He wants to be fit and in top shape before South Africa series and if India is able to win Test battle in Proteas backyard, Virat will enter record books, becoming the first Indian skipper to do so. He has accepted that matches in South Africa won’t be easy, considering the bounce pitches offer to fast bowlers.
