Ashes 2013-14: David Warner overhauls Alastair Cook and Ian Bell in ICC rankings

 

David Warner has leapfrogged the England duo Ian Bell and Alastair Cook up to 11th place in the new ICC Test rankings for batsmen after helping Australia to reclaim the Ashes in Perth.

Warner followed up his first-innings 60 with 112 at the Waca to leave him as the leading runscorer in the series, which helped him move up three places in the rankings, as Bell and Cook – the highest-placed England players – each slipped one place to 12th and 14th, respectively.

However, Kevin Pietersen climbed one place to 15th, Michael Carberry was up 17 spots to 83rd, while Ben Stokes soared to 73rd place – a rise of 81 places – after his first Test century in the Perth defeat.

The same players occupy the top 10 of the rankings, with the South Africa duo A B de Villiers and Hashim Amla leading the way ahead of Australia's Michael Clarke.

In the bowling rankings, England's nemesis Mitchell Johnson has moved up three places to 14th spot – level on 663 points with Graeme Swann, who slips a place after New Zealand's Trent Boult stormed up to 10th.

Swann, who took three wickets in Perth, is one of three England bowlers to slip down the rankings, with James Anderson dropping three to 13th and Stuart Broad down one spot to ninth. The Australia duo Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle are sixth and seventh, respectively.
