Gambhir top-ranked Indian in Tests

Dubai: India's opening batsman Gautam Gambhir is the highest ranked Test batsman at number three and Harbhajan Singh, at sixth, is the highest placed Indian bowler in the ICC's latest ranking.

Gautam Gambhir with 847 rating points, is the only Indian in the top 10 batsmen's chart, followed by Sachin Tendulkar (13th), VVS Laxman (15th) and Virender Sehwag (20th).

Harbhajan Singh is the only Indian in the top 10, followed by Zaheer Khan (11th) and Ishant Sharma (20th).

Austraia is the top ranked team (128) followed by South Africa (119) and India (117)

Pakistan, currently sixth, will go into their three-Test series against Sri Lanka starting at Galle on Saturday targetting the fourth place, replacing the Lankans.

A 1-0 or 2-1 series win for Younus Khan's side will be enough to put it on 105 ratings points alongside Sri Lanka but ahead of Kumar Sangakkara's side when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point.
