ICC ranking 2018 – India’s spinner Kuldeep Yadav break into the top-10 for the first time in his career.
The left-arm wrist-spinner took nine wickets in the series, including six for 25 at Trent Bridge, which have been rewarded with a rise of eight places to a career-high sixth position.
Yadav is the second India bowler to feature in the top-10 after number-one ranked Jasprit Bumrah and fifth spinner to find a place in the 10 highest-ranked bowlers. The other four spinners are Rashid Khan (second), Imran Tahir (seventh), Adil Rashid (eighth) and Yuzvendra Chahal (10th).
