Cape Town - Following his double failure with the bat in the first Test against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi, Proteas star Jacques Kallis is no longer the world's leading all-rounder according to the latest ICC rankings.

As it happened: Pakistan v South Africa

Kallis, who scored five and a duck in his two innings in South Africa's seven-wicket defeat on Thursday, has slipped to No 2 behind Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan.

Kallis' bowling figures in Pakistan's first innings read 13-2-44-0.

Kallis didn't bowl in Pakistan's second innings where they chased down the required 40 runs for victory for the loss of three wickets.

Top 5 in ICC all-rounders rankings:

1. Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh) 349
2. Jacques Kallis (South Africa) 347
3. Ravichandran Ashwin (India) 321
4. Vernon Philander (South Africa) 293
5. Stuart Broad (England) 288
