Bangalore: Following their commanding displays at Trent Bridge, Tim Bresnan, the England all-rounder, and Marlon Samuels, the West Indies batsman, rose to career-best positions in the latest ICC rankings.
A match haul of 8 for 41, along with a handy 39, in England’s series winning nine-wicket victory over the West Indies saw Bresnan claim the man-of-the-match award. The paceman catapulted ten places to 15th in the Test bowlers’ rankings. Bresnan also climbed to eighth in the ICC’s all-rounders’ list.
Bresnan’s performances only marginally shadowed that of Samuels’s. Samuels jumped 20 spots to lie 35th by the end of the Test following scores of 117 and 76 in Nottingham.
