Calcutta: Australia captain Michael Clarke has reclaimed the top spot in the latest ICC Player Rankings for Test batsmen that was released on Tuesday after the completion of the Hobart and Nagpur Tests.

On the Indian front, Sachin Tendulkar slipped out of the list of top-20 after his awful run in the just-concluded four-match series against England.
