Top performers in Tests in 2011

Last updated on: August 16, 2011 20:34 IST

Alastair Cook moved to the top rung in the leading run-scores' list for 2011 after his marathon 294 in the third Test between England and India at Edgbaston last week.

His knock was not only instrumental in England's innings and 242-run defeat, but also helped them dethrone India from the No. 1 spot in Tests.

Cooik, who had poor scores in the first two Tests of the ongoing series, also catapulted to a career-best No 3 in the ICC rankings.

Here's a look at the top performers in Tests this year.
