Smith closes in on top-ranked Kohli in Test Rankin
Steve Smith’s valiant 92 in the first innings at Lord’s has helped him gain one spot and close in on top-ranked Virat Kohli in the latest ICC Test Player Rankings.

The Australia batsman has overtaken New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and is now only nine points behind Kohli, but the India captain will get a chance to consolidate his position in the two-Test series in the West Indies starting Thursday.

Marnus Labuschagne, who batted in the second innings as Smith withdrew on being concussed, has also moved up 16 places to 82nd position after scoring a determined 59 that helped draw the second Test to ensure Australia retained a 1-0 lead in the five-match series that kicked off the ICC World Test Championship.

Travis Head, who advanced two places to 18th after an unbeaten 42 in the second innings, is another Australia batsman to move up the rankings while Pat Cummins has gained one place to reach fifth position in the all-rounders’ list.
