Besides Kohli, deputy captain Ajinkya Rahane (23), and openers Lokesh Rahul (25), Murali Vijay (34) and Shikhar Dhawan (26) also slipped in their rankings. However, Ravichandran Ashwin was the only notable exception, moving up in the list for batsmen from 67th to 57th.
Ashwin has also leap-frogged South Africa's Vernon Philander to grab the third position among all-rounders.
Anderson now leads second-placed South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada by 21 points in the bowlers' list. Indian bowlers Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin are stable at No.3 and No.5, respectively with Philander separating the duo.
