Australian paceman Josh Hazlewood is now rated amongst the top five bowlers in the world after a six-wicket haul during the second Test against South Africa.

Hazlewood moved up four spots to No.5 in the ICC rankings, usurping the likes of teammate Mitchell Starc (No.8).

Indian offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin was rated the top bowler.

Australian captain Steve Smith maintained top spot in the Test batting rankings, David Warner the next best Australian at No.7.

Usman Khawaja moved up nine places to No.19 after a match-winning knock of 145 that helped Australia win the day-night final Test against South Africa in Adelaide by seven wickets.
