After a modest start to the season, Rahul Dravid came up with an equally impressive show matching his team-mate to boost his rating by 13 points to be at joint seventh.

Saurav Ganguly is languishing at 26th place, down two positions, with 629 points. S Ramesh is the only other Indian batsman to figure in the top 40 list. Zimbabwe wicket-keeper Andy Flower, who had a fruitful tour of India, leapfrogged eight places to push Australian captain Steve Waugh down to third place. With 831 points, Andy Flower is alone at the second spot. Steve Waugh (829), Inzamam-ul Haq (801), Saeed Anwar (767), Ricky Ponting (767), Jacques Kallis (742) and Justin Langer (724) are the other batsmen who figure in top 10.
