LONDON: Reigning Test Cricketer of the Year, England's Joe Root is the big mover on the latest ICC rankings, with the former England captain rising two spots to sit in second place behind Australia's Marnus Labuschagne.

With Joe Root in sublime form, as he displayed in the first Test against New Zealand where his unbeaten century guided England to a five-wicket win at Lord's, the battle for prestige among the top-five batters in the world has intensified further.

That unbeaten 115 at Lord's also saw the right-hander become the second England player and 14th overall to register 10,000 Test runs. The 31-year-old moves within just 10 rankings points of Labuschagne and could close the gap even further when the second Test between England and New Zealand commences in Nottingham on June 10.
