There was no change in India captain Virat Kohli's position at the top of Test batsmen's list but West Indies skipper Jason Holder emulated Sir Gary Sobers to become world's No 1 all-rounder in the latest Test rankings released by the ICC.
Sir Gary Sobers was the last cricketer from Caribbean islands to top the list in March 1974 and Holder has now emulated him following his 202 not out off 229 balls in West Indies' emphatic win against England.
