The latest Reliance Mobile ICC Player Rankings reveals the ascendancy of South Africa cricketers.

For example, South Africa’s captain Graeme Smith returned to the top five in the Reliance Mobile ICC Player Rankings for Test batsmen, gaining seven places to fourth position following his 183 in the last Test match against England.

If that is not proof enough of South Africa dominating the rankings, Jacques Kallis has achieved the sixth position following his 32nd Test century.

Dale Steyn is holding on to the second place in the bowling chart with only Australia’s Mitchell Johnson ahead of him.

Another Protean pacer, Morne Morkel has leapt up eight spots to a career-high position of 16th place.

In the Reliance Mobile ICC Player Rankings for Test all-rounder, Kallis still heads the list with Daniel Vettori of New Zealand in second place.
