Bangladesh wicket-keeper batter Litton Das achieved an extraordinary feat by becoming his country's highest-ranked batter in the ICC Test rankings.

He did, in fact, break his own record, moving from 12th to 11th in the latest International Cricket Council (ICC) rankings released today. He now has 702 rating points, 14 fewer than No. 10 batter Daryl Mitchell of New Zealand.

Because Bangladesh hasn't had any Test matches in a while, it will be difficult for him to break into the top 10 for the first time by any Bangladeshi batter.

However, by moving to 11, he went past the stars like Usman Khawaja, Virat Kohli, David Warner.

After the Mirpur Test against India last week, Litton rose to the 12th position in the ranking among Test batters. He came to this position once before in June this year.

Litton could not break his previous record in rating points even though he moved beyond that position and came close to the top 10. His rating was 724 in June this year. This is the highest rating of any Bangladeshi batter till now.
