ICC has categorized the players into three for the rankings format. The first is for the batters, the second is for bowlers, while the third category is for the all-rounders. There was a time when players of SENA countries and Pakistan dominated the bowlers’ rankings. However, times have changed now.

Even the Indian bowlers have started to dominate now in the Test format, and it is not surprising to see them at the top. Here’s a list of four Indians who achieved the number one position in ICC Test Rankings.
