India's Sachin Tendulkar and South Africa's Jacques Kallis remain jointly atop the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for Test batsmen with 883 points each.
Kallis also retained the No 1 spot in the list of leading all-rounders in Test cricket.
India's Virender Sehwag and VVS Laxman held on to sixth and eighth places respectively, while former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara dropped a place to fourth in the current list.
In the list of bowlers, speedsters Zaheer Khan and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh retained fifth and seventh positions respectively.
Dale Steyn is way ahead at the top with 899 points, with England off-spinner Graeme Swann a distant second.
Meanwhile, the drawn Test against Sri Lanka at the Lord's means England cannot displace South Africa as the No 2 team in Tests, behind India.
The best series result England can now achieve is 2-0, which will put them alongside South Africa on 117 ratings points. However, they will be ranked behind the Proteas when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point.
