Michael Clarke dethrones Sangakkara to top Test table
Adelaide: Australian skipper Michael Clarke has yet again hopped a long way to regain the top spot in the Test rankings in the latest revision of the Reliance ICC Player Rankings. The right handed batsman who has been in top form throughout the year with four thumping double tons, has got the reward for his hard work by enthroning the Test throne.

Michael Clarke, 31, hammered a mastered 230 runs in the first innings, his fourth double century of the year, which has earned him 33 rating points and have helped him vault Sri Lanka’s left hander Kumar Sangakkara and South A duo of Hashim Amla and Jacques Kallis into the number-one position.

This is for the third time that Clarke has snatched the no. 1 spot from the rest of the batsmen around the globe. He first topped the table in the year August, 2009. He again topped the table the same year in March-April.

But he couldn't stay there for too long both the times. Same is the possibility which still exists as he leads Sangakkara by a slight 10 ratings point margin.

Now, if the stylish sub-continent batsman manages to get it right after the first innings failure and turn it to a strong performance in the second innings of the ongoing second Test against New Zealand in Colombo, he may retain the lost spot once again. Kumar snatched the spot from West Indies' Shivnarine Chanderpaul in July.

Interestingly, Clarke began the year from the 20th position and has made his way to the top scoring 1,309 runs in a calendar year which hasn't finished as yet.

Not just Clarke but Ricky Ponting (24th, down by three) and Michael Hussey (12th, down by one) are the other two current Australia team players who have tasted number-one positions in the history of the game.
