Rangana Herath has become the highest-ranked spinner in the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for Test bowlers following the conclusion of the Colombo Test, which New Zealand won by 167 runs to draw the two-Test series at one-all.

Herath returned figures of six for 103 and three for 67 at the P.Sara Oval.

For this performance, he has been rewarded with a jump of two places, which has put him in second position, ahead of Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal and South Africa fast bowler Vernon Philander.

Herath, whose 20 wickets in the series earned him the player of the series award, overall gained 56 ratings points in two Tests, which has put him six ratings points ahead of Saeed and Philander, who now share third position.
