Tendulkar's man-of-the-match display in the second Test against Australia this week was enough to secure him the number one spot .
The 37-year-old's 214 and unbeaten 53 inspired India to a seven-wicket win over the tourists and secured a 2-0 victory in the series. He jumped from fourth to edge out Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara and compatriot Virender Sehwag and top the ratings for the ninth time in his career.
His first spell at the top came in November 1994.
WELL DONE SACHIN...
