All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is the highest ranked Indian bowler even though he has slipped a couple of rungs to fifth.
Sri Lanka spinner Rangana Herath jumped 14 places to 11th and his skipper Angelo Mathews moved up nine places to 13th in the bowlers` rankings.
Outside the top 20, Darren Sammy in 29th (up by nine), Ravi Rampaul in 30th (up by one), Peter Borren in 55th (up by two) and Kevin O`Brien in 58th (up by 12) made upward movements.

In rankings for batsmen, ex-Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara moved up a place to fifth. Another former Sri Lanka captain, Mahela Jayawardene, is back in the top 20 after he moved up three places to 18th.
