Johannesburg - South African batsman Hashim Amla moved within four points of the number-one ranked batsman in the ICC Test Player Rankings released on Tuesday.

Although four ratings points separate the top three batsmen, Clarke would have the first shot at regaining the number-one position when he leads his side in the first Test against Sri Lanka, which starts in Hobart on December 14.

Ponting also ended his ODI career in 39th position in the ICC ODI batting rankings. Ponting first topped the ODI rankings on May 18 2003 when he scored 57 against the West Indies in the second ODI at Sabina Park, Jamaica.
