Williamson has been on top before
Let us tell you that Williamson has been at the top of the Test rankings in the past as well. Two weeks ago, Smith had replaced Williamson at the top of the rankings, but the New Zealand captain again rose to the top. Williamson reached the top of the rankings for the first time in November 2015 during the series against Australia. Ross Taylor, who shared an unbroken 96-run partnership with Williamson after scoring an unbeaten 47 in the second innings of the WTC final, has moved up three places to 14.
In addition to Williamson and Taylor, New Zealand opener Devon Conway and all-rounder Kyle Jamieson have also gained rankings. Conway, the left-hander who made his Test debut a few weeks ago, moved up 18 places after scoring 52 in the first innings of the WTC final. Gain has reached 42nd place. Jamieson, on the other hand, has moved up to the sixth position in the rankings for Test all-rounders. This is the best ranking of his career.

There is no change in the ranking of Indian Virat Kohli (812 points). He remains in fourth place. Australian batsman Marnus Labuschagne (878 points) is in third place. After Kohli comes the number of England captain Joe Root. He is at the fifth position with 790 points. Opener Rohit Sharma (759) is sixth while Rishabh Pant (752 points) is in seventh place. At the same time, Australian opener David Warner (724 points) is eighth and South Africa’s Quinton de Kock (717 points) is in ninth place. New Zealand’s Henry Nicholls (714 points) is at the tenth position.
