Pakistan is on second position in world top cricket teams for test matches
Pakistan came on second position in world top cricket teams for test matches. Pakistan gained this position after Australian team was clean swept by Sri Lanka. This destructive defeat cost Australia to leave number one position.
India, currently on tour of the West Indies, sit atop the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings with 112 points. Pakistan, who defeated England in the final Test at The Oval by 10 wickets to draw the series 2-2, is on number two with 111 points.
Australia, after losing to Sri Lanka by 106 runs in Pallekele, 229 runs in Galle and 163 runs in Colombo, are now at number three with 108 points.
For Pakistan, this is the second time in less than 12 months that they have climbed to the second position. Misbah-ul-Haq’s side had moved to the second spot for the first time in the history of the rankings after defeating England 2-0 last year in the United Arab Emirates.
If India lose to West Indies at Port-of-Spain, the green shirts will become the number one Test side in the world for the first time ever.
