Mayers Enters ICC Test Rankings As West Indies’ Highest Debutant Batsman

  • Mayers records highest ever rating points for a debutant West Indies batsman; Hasan leads Pakistan pace resurgence

England captain Joe Root’s match-winning 218 in the first Test against India has helped him advance two places to third position, overtaking counterpart Virat Kohli in the process, while debutant West Indies batsman Kyle Mayers and Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali provide much delight to their fans in the updated MRF Tyres ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings.

Mayers, whose scores of 40 and 210 not out helped script an epic win in the first Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong, has entered the rankings in 70th position with 448 rating points, the best by a West Indian batsman on debut and the second-best ever on debut after RE Foster, who was on 449 rating points back in 1903 after scoring 287 on debut for England against Australia in Sydney.

Others to gain for the West Indies include captain Kraigg Brathwaite (up eight places to 53rd) among batsmen and the spin pair of Jomel Warrican (up 14 places to 62nd) and Rahkeem Cornwall (up six places to 65th).
