LONDON: India captain Virat Kohli has returned to the top of the International Cricket Council’s Test batting rankings following his man-of-the-match effort against England at Trent Bridge.

The 29-year-old scored 97 and 103 and saw India beat England by 203 runs in the third Test at Nottingham’s Trent Bridge on Wednesday as they reduced the hosts’ lead in a five-match series to 2-1.

Kohli took top spot in the rankings for the first time after scoring a hundred in the series opener at Edgbaston.

But he lost it to the banned Steve Smith after struggling in the second Test at Lord’s even though the former Australia captain has not played since March.
