Meanwhile, scalping an overall six wickets in New Zealand's first Test win against West Indies, Kiwi medium-pacer Tim Southee climbed three spots to be placed fifth in the bowlers' chart.

Southee, who has registered 879 runs and picked 118 wickets in 32 Tests, also jumped a place to be seventh in the all-rounders rankings.

Southee, who was declared player of the tournament at the U-19 World Cup 2008, has now become his country’s highest-ranked bowler.

His closest rival is fellow fast bowler Trent Boult, who has dropped two places to ninth position after claiming one wicket in the Test.
