Kohli is first batsman since SRT to become no 1 in tests - after 7 years!

Recommended Posts

Never realized SRT was last batsman to reach no 1 ranking. 

 

23rd June 2011 - last time when an Indian batsman was at top.

Vijay Hazare was rated at 869, but was ranked 2 in 1952. 

Umrigar was rated 781, ranked 6th in 1955.

 

So this is longest span (7 years) for top ranking for an Indian batsman since 1975.
