The English star Joe Root is sitting very next on the second rank. But unfortunately, Kohli fans won’t be happy with the current situation as modern-day great Virat Kohli is sitting back in the 6th slot.

The Bangladeshi star Shakib Al Hasan is on the top of ICC Test All Rounder Ranking. The thing to add up here is the consistent Shakib has stayed among top all rounder’s on the list for years. Jadeja and Ashwin have 2nd and 3rd positions in the ranking respectively. Ben Stokes is on the 4th rank but it isn’t sure whether he’ll be able to stay in the position for long as it seems that the star English player will be missing the upcoming Ashes Test series.
