Bangladesh left-arm spinner Taijul Islam has claimed a career-best 14th in the ICC Test Bowlers' Rankings after his 10-wicket haul against New Zealand in the first Test.

India's Ashwin is in the first place although towering New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson re-enters the rankings at No.13 following his return to red-ball cricket and Bangladesh spinner Taijul Islam jumps four places to a career-best 14th.

Taijul's total of 708 rating points is the highest-ever by a Bangladesh bowler, surpassing Shakib Al Hasan’s 705 achieved in August 2017.

Taijul is Bangladesh's second-highest wicket-taker in Tests with 189 scalps, only behind Shakib's tally of 233 wickets.
