India players have reaped the rewards for an innings and 135 runs win over Australia in the second cricket Test in Hyderabad by making a charge on the latest ICC Test Player Rankings released Tuesday.

The biggest gains have been made by batsman Cheteshwar Pujara and off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who have achieved their career-best rankings in batting and bowling, respectively.

Pujara, named Player of the Match for his double-century in the second Test, has jumped 12 places to a career-best 11th position while Ashwin, who had match figures of 6/104, is now at a best-ever eighth spot, having jumped three positions.

In the rankings for Test batsmen, second-ranked Australia captain Michael Clarke has dropped three ratings points and now trails No.1 ranked Hashim Amla by 13 ratings points. Murali Vijay, the other Test centurion in Hyderabad, has jumped 27 places to 60th.

In the rankings for Test bowlers, Australia's fast bowler James Pattinson has broken into the top 20 in 20th (up by one) while other bowlers to improve their rankings include Harbhajan Singh in 25th (up by one), Ravindra Jadeja in 40th (up by 23) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in 97th (up by 28).

The bowlers' table is still headed by South Africa's Dale Steyn.
