West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul has regained the Number 1 ranking for Test batsmen after nearly three years
Chanderpaul was the leading run-scorer in the recently concluded home Test series against Australia with 346 runs at an average of 86.50.
Australia, after winning the series 2-0, moved up to Number 3 in the ICC Test rankings, replacing India.
Chanderpaul reached the top after his twin half-centuries in the final Test in Dominica, moving ahead of the South African duo of Jacques Kallis and AB de Villiers.
He also passed the 10,000-run mark in the series.
