Among the batsmen, Pujara cracks the top-10 of #7 (777 points), and he is the sole Indian bat in the top 20, ahead of Dhoni (#22), Kohli (#24) and Tendulkar (#26).  Despite his stellar series, Vijay only sneaks in at #40, a testament to his poor run, prior to this series.  Amla, Chanders, AB, Sanga & Clarke round out the top 5.

On the bowling front, Ashwin gets his highest ranking of #6 (757 points) with Ojha*** on to a spot in the top 10 (#10, 706 points) on the basis of his strong showing against England.  Sir Jadeja comes in at #27.  The usual suspects, Steyn, Philander and Ajmal are in the top 5, but #3 is a relatively new entrant -- Herath, based on his superb showing in the last 12 months.

England's last wicket save means they cling on to the #2 slot, just ahead of India.  However, India with their heavily skewed calendar -- all home Tests done and then a steady diet of all away Tests -- are likely to slip.

I am happy that India is not #2 (especially ahead of England). England
with their recent fantastic win in India deserve to be ranked above
India as of now. And after so many crappy performance, jumping to #2
just after one series win (though 4-0), would have been empty. I don't
think India deserve to be #2 right now, IMO.

The argument of deservedness is really stupid since the points are fairly distributed.

Not even the mighty Windies during their peak had thrashed Australia 4-0. No modern team has done this. That alone deserves a bazillion points. And England lost 0-3 to Pak and a series to a really lowly rated New Zealand and somehow that should give them a better ranking?

Are all these for their performance in India? How Indian batsmen fared in Australia or England?

Pujara & Vijay have never played in Australia or England.
Dhoni averages 39 in England and 19 in Australia
Kohli averages 39 in Australia and hasn't played in England
Tendulkar averages 53 in Australia and 54 in England

Going on to some other batsmen from other countries

Samaraweera averages 18 in Australia & 27 in England
Jayawardene averages 31 in Australia & 34 in England
