Steyn may lose top spot

2010-11-23 18:45
Johannesburg - Dale Steyn is in danger of losing his ranking as the world's top bowler to England's off-spinner Graeme Swann, it emerged in the ICC Player Rankings for Test bowlers released on Tuesday.

Fast bowler Steyn is just six ratings points ahead of Swann.

"However, a good performance at the Gabba will potentially make the 31-year-old from Northampton the first England bowler since Steve Harmison to achieve the number-one ranking," the ICC said in a statement.

Harmison topped the bowling table in August 2004 after the Oval Test against the West Indies in which he had match figures of 9-121.

Swann is also the fifth ranked all-rounder. The all-rounders' list is headed by Jacques Kallis.
