Kohli slips to second position in test ranking after outplaying Lord's test

Following India’s unsatisfactory performance at Lords in the second test against England, skipper Virat Kohli has slipped to the second position in rankings for Test batsmen sustaining for only 8-days after aggregating just 40 runs in the Lord’s Test.

Kohli had become the first Indian since Sachin Tendulkar in 2011 to top the Test batsmen rankings on August 5.

Australia’s Steve Smith, who is serving a one-year ban over the ball-tampering scandal, reclaimed the top spot.

Pacers James Anderson and Stuart Broad took eight wickets as England defeated India by an innings and 159 runs on the fourth day of the second Test to take 2-0 lead in the five-match series here at the Lord’s Cricket Ground on Sunday.

Expressing disappointment over the loss, Kohli said that he is not at all proud of the way his side performed in the match, while admitting that the England team displayed their hard work and dedication throughout the game.
