Afridi’s match haul of 10 for 94 —- his first ten-for — helped him shoot up ten spots to No. 8, whereas Alam’s 124 in the first innings took him up 34 places to the 21st position. Alam’s previous best in the rankings was 47th in May earlier this year and Afridi’s best was 18th, which he had reached at the end of the first Test, when he picked up 8 for 109.
