The latest International Cricket Council's (ICC) Test batting and bowling rankings have been released, with Pakistan batsman Younis Khan jumping up to second overall.

Khan missed Pakistan's first Test against the West Indies due it illness, but returned in the second Test and scored 127 and 29* in his side's 133-run victory.

The century was enough to see Khan move ahead of Kiwi Kane Williamson, English batsman Joe Root and South African Hashim Amla.

The 38-year-old now has Steve Smith in his sides at the top of the rankings leaderboard, although Smith still has a handy 46-point buffer on his rival.

In the bowling charts, Khan's teammate Yasir Shah match figures of 10-210 in the second Test saw him move back into the top five, as he draws level in fifth with English paceman Stuart Broad.

Ben Stokes led England to a tense 22-run win over Bandladesh last week, and Stokes now has claimed a career best fourth position on the rankings leaderboard.
