Australian captain Ricky Ponting has moved to joint-third on the all-time ICC player rankings for Test batsmen.

Ponting's 142 and 49 in the second Test in Adelaide moved him from sixth in the list, past England's Peter May and level with another England great, Jack Hobbs.

Donald Bradman tops the list while Pakistan's record-breaking batsman Mohammed Yousuf is 10th.

In the latest ICC player rankings, England batsman Kevin Pietersen has moved up one place to fourth overall in the batting list following his first innings 158 in the Adelaide Test.

Australian Michael Hussey has moved to a career best sixth, while Damien Martyn (22nd) has dropped out of the top 20 for the first time since 2004.

England middle-order batsman Paul Collingwood's maiden Test double-century has sent him shooting up 16 places to 13th spot.

And Matthew Hoggard is now England's highest ranked Test bowler, fifth on the bowlers' list, while Steve Harmison has dropped to 19th.
