Kohli slips one place, Ashwin back as top all-rounder
 
Dubai, Mar 13 (PTI) Indian captain Virat Kohli slipped one place to fourth while R Ashwin was back as top allrounder as well as maintaining his number one place among bowlers in the ICC Test rankings released today.

Kohli (847 points) has had an ordinary Test series against Australia, scoring 0, 13, 12 and 15 in the two matches so far.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson gained two places to reach second spot in the ICC Player Rankings for Test Batsmen.

Williamson, who was numberone ranked for a brief while in NovemberDecember 2015, is now on 869 points, 21 points ahead of thirdplaced Root (848) but a good 67 points adrift of table leader Steve Smith of Australia, who's on 936 points.

Another Indian Cheteshwar Pujara is unchanged on sixth.

The top 10 of the ICC Player Rankings for Test Bowlers remained unchanged with Ashwin and Ravindra jadeja occupying first and second spots respectively after the duo spun India to a sensational victory over Australia in the second Test in Bangalore by claiming eight and seven wickets respectively.

Meanwhile, Ashwin also dethroned Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan from the top spot for allrounders. Ashwin is now on 434 points, 31 ahead of Shakib (403).
