Dubai: Australian David Warner jumped to a career-best fifth spot after his batting exploits in his side's Test series victory against South Africa while India's Virat Kohli slipped two places to 10th in the latest ICC Rankings released on Thursday. Warner, who slammed hundreds (135 and 145) in both innings of the series-deciding Cape Town Test, has moved up five places to be the highest-ranked Australia batsman, with his skipper Michael Clarke in ninth position being the only other in the top 10.

The batting table is still headed by AB de Villiers, with Kumar Sangakkara in second place and Shivnarine Chanderpaul in third position. Kohli is also the lone Indian in the top 10 among batsmen.

In the ICC Player Rankings for Test Bowlers, Ryan Harris, who ended with a match haul of seven for 95 in Cape Town, has moved up two places to a best-ever second position. Harris has now moved ahead of Vernon Philander and teammate Mitchell Johnson. (Harris hailed hero as Aussies prevail)
