Dubai, Aug 8 - India's Ravindra Jadeja has claimed the top ranking among the all-rounders in Test cricket for the first time, while his teammates Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane jumped to third and fifth positions respectively in the rankings for batsmen, it was announced on Tuesday.

Jadeja's knock of 70 not out and seven wickets in the second Test have seen him edge out Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan to take the top position among all-rounders for the first time, the International Cricket Council (ICC) declared.

Jadeja, who is the top-ranked Test bowler, has also gained nine places to reach 51st rank among batsmen. India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has conceded the second spot to England veteran seamer James Anderson.

India's wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has attained a career-best 44th position after moving up four places.
