DUBAI: Riding on his superb showing against South Africa, Indian left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja jumped eight rungs to be placed on a career-high 13th spot in the ICC bowling rankings led by Proteas pacer Dale Steyn.

In the latest chart released today following the conclusion of the Bengaluru and Perth Tests, retired Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson signed off with a ninth-placed finish.

But it was Jadeja who saw a signinficant rise after his eight wickets in the first Test and four scalps in the only innings possible during the rain-truncated second match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The left-handed all-rounder has been in terrific form after bagging 38 wickets in four Ranji games which forced the selectors to bring him back into the international mix of things.

Premier off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who has also bagged 12 wickets in the series so far, maintained his fifth spot in the table to be the only Indian bowler in the top-10.

In the batting chart, Murali Vijay is the highest-placed Indian at No.12 with South Africa's AB de Villiers staying firm at the top of the heap.

Cheteshwar Pujara is 13th while Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli stays at the 17th spot.

In the all-rounders list, Bangladesh's Shakib al Hasan continues to lead with Ashwin at the second spot and Johnson finshes his career at the fifth position.
