England all-rounder Ben Stokes also earned his place in the top 10 after his exploits against New Zealand although in a losing cause. He jumped up three places to sit in the ninth place, four points more than Mayank.

Indian captain Virat Kohli‘s century in the second test match against Bangladesh saw himself move to three points shy of Steve Smith’s 931 points at the top. Two other Indians in the list include Cheteshwar Pujara at fourth and Ajinkya Rahane just below him.
