Dubai: Australia captain Michael Clarke has reclaimed the top spot in the latest ICC Player Rankings for Test batsmen while no Indian figures in the top-20 of the list.

Clarke, who entered the Hobart Test against Sri Lanka trailing number-one ranked Shivnarine Chanderpaul by just one ratings point, now leads the West Indian by nine points. Clarke's knocks of 74 and 57 in the Hobart game that was won by Australia by 137 runs, played a part in helping him race to the top.

England's captain Alastair Cook, who was the other contender for the top spot, has remained in fourth position after losing 38 ratings points following his double failure in the Nagpur Test which ended in a draw.
