Pietersen moves up to tenth place
Kevin Pietersen's superb 142 in the second Test against Sri Lanka at Edgbaston has lifted him to a career-best tenth spot in the ICC Test rankings for batsmen. Pietersen had moved into the top 20 only a couple of weeks back after his 158 in the first Test at Lord's. England now have three batsmen in the top 20 - Marcus Trescothick is in 11th place - down one slot - while Andrew Strauss is in 15th.
Among the bowlers, Matthew Hoggard and Andrew Flintoff remain in fifth and sixth positions, though Hoggard's tally of 795 points is his highest ever.
It was a forgettable match for Sri Lanka, though Muttiah Muralitharan further strengthened his position at the top of the bowlers' list with a match haul of 10 for 115. Kumar Sangakkara slipped two places to No.13 while Mahela Jayawardene dropped five slots to No.18 after disappointing performances with the bat. Michael Vandort's hundred helped him break into the top 100 - he moved up 47 places to 78th.
