The Indian opener Gautam Gambir has beccome the first Indian batsman in over four years to head the batting rankings after a double failure by Mohammad Yousuf which dropped him out of the top three of the Reliance Mobile ICC Player Rankings. Mohammed Yousuf returned to the No 1 spot last week with a century in the first test which took place in galle,but managed to score only 10 and 6 in the second test and ude to that he has dropped four places to the fifth position in the latest ranking which was released after the colombo test. Pakistan skipper Younis khan was able to retain his No 2 spot but by conceding 12 points with the scores of 0 and 82.

Gautam gambir's 847 points is relatively low for the No 1 spot in modern days because usually batsman score up to 900 points to retain the first place.Gautam is lucky may be because of the lack of form by the top order bataman.Gambir is the Indian batsman after Rahul Dravid to top the chart. Sachin Tendulkaris the other Indian batsman in the last 15 years who has topped the batting chart.Both the test and and ODI ranking are headed by the Indian batsman with Indian Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni leading in the ODI and Yuvraj Singh who bagged the Second Spot.
