Lara tops ICC rankings

Brian Lara has regained the No. 1 spot in the ICC world Test rankings after his magnificent century at Kensington Oval against Pakistan. Lara's knock of 130 and 48 guided him from the second position and he displaced Jacques Kallis from the top of the heap.

Lara's captain, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, leaped five positions to No 8 after his knocks of 92 and 153 not out in the first Test against Pakistan, which helped his side to a much-needed win. The top five in the table were otherwise unchanged with Rahul Dravid at No.3, followed by Ricky Ponting and Virender Sehwag.

In the bowling rankings, Glenn McGrath has maintained his top position, with Muttiah Muralitharan at No.2, followed by South African duo - Shaun Pollock and Makhaya Ntini.
