Jimmy Anderson displaces Ravindra Jadeja as the number 1 Test bowler

Jimmy Anderson displaces Ravindra Jadeja as the number 1 Test bowler

England fast bowler James Anderson is the new No.1 ranked Test bowler in the latest update of the International Cricket Council's rankings.

James Anderson has risen to the top spot in the ICC Test Player Rankings for bowlers following his nine wickets against Windies in the third and final Test at Lord's that helped England to a nine-wicket win and a 2-1 series win.

But under pressure top-order batsmen Mark Stoneman (40 not out) and Tom Westley (44 not out) saw England to their meagre target without further loss.

This was England's last Test before they begin the defence of the Ashes in Brisbane in November. England captain Joe Root has now won two series since taking over as skipper from Alastair Cook but a tough challenge awaits Down Under.

Anderson, who was in the second position before the start of the Test, is now leading Jadeja by 12 points in the rankings chart and has attained his career best rating point of 896.

He crushed West Indies with his 243 at Edgbaston.

Anderson, who starred in a 3-1 Ashes win in Australia in 2011/11, has always been regarded as ideally suited to swing-friendly English conditions and had an outstanding season with the 35-year-old Lancashire paceman taking 39 wickets in just seven Tests. "He is one of most skillful bowlers I have ever played with". But Hope's fourth ball after the interval saw him undone by a superb Anderson leg-cutter and caught behind. "Credit must go to our bowlers and obviously Shai was outstanding in this entire series, and Kraigg (Brathwaite) did a hell of a job too - especially at Headingley". 'You've got to make the most of it when you are in rhythm, when you're not it can be a struggle'.

"But I'm extremely proud, and can't fault the guys for their effort".
