Chris Woakes made a brilliant comeback into the England squad in the fourth Test against India at The Oval, performing well with both the bat and the ball, and moving up in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings.

Despite England losing the contest on the final day, Woakes was a star performer for the home side, scalping seven wickets in the match while also scoring a half-century in the first innings. The performance in the match has enabled him to jump into the top 10 in the Test rankings for all-rounders, gaining two spots up to No.9. 

In the bowling rankings for Test, James Anderson dropped down two spots to No.7. with Neil Wagner and Kagiso Rabada gaining one spot each, to jump up to No.5 and N.6 respectively.
