MOEEN Ali is one of three Worcestershire players past and present in the top five of the ICC Test rankings for all-rounders.

The 30-year-old, who flew out to Australia on Saturday with England to prepare for the Ashes, is fifth with 378 points.

His best position was third in August which is now filled by Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

Ashwin played a key role in Worcestershire gaining promotion to Specsavers County Championship Division One with 20 wickets in four matches and important contributions with the bat.

But in top position is Bangladesh star Shakib Al Hasan who enjoyed two spells at New Road.

Moeen is ranked 20th in the ICC Test bowling rankings with 608 points.

His England colleagues James Anderson, in top position, and Stuart Broad (10th) are ahead of Moeen on 896 and 737 points respectively.

Ashwin lies fourth on 852 with Shakib 17th on 668.

Former Worcestershire T20 player Steve Smith heads the ICC Test batting rankings on 937 points.

Moeen is 28th on 622 behind Shakib in 22nd on 655 but in front of Ashwin in 52nd on 495.
