Opener Rohit Sharma touched his career-best eighth position in the ICC Test Batsmen’s Rankings on Sunday courtesy a six-place jump.

While batsmen from both the teams struggled during India’s 10-wicket win over England in the low-scoring third Test in Ahmedabad, Rohit stood tall in the ruins with scores of 66 and 25 not out.
