Babar only batsman ranked among top 5 in all formats


After regaining his career-best fifth position in ICC’s Test rankings on Tuesday, right-handed Babar Azam is currently the only batsman in the world to be ranked among the top-five in all formats.

Azam moved up a spot to number five after his 47-run knock in the second Test match against England in Southampton. The match was drawn after rain repeatedly interrupted play.

With 879 points, Azam is the top batsman in the Twenty20 International format and is ranked at number three in the one-day international format.
