Pakistan, Sri-Lanka to improve their Test Ranking84 views
Pakistan will face Sri-Lanka in a three match Test series at Galle starting from Wednesday, either the team wins pulls up a great shuffle in the International Cricket Council(ICC) Test Rankings.
Currently Pakistan is on sixth spot in the ICC Test Rankings, two points behind fourth placed New Zealand and on level with India and England on 97 points. Meanwhile the Islanders are on the seventh spot trailing to Greenshirts with one point.
If Pakistan manage to win all three Tests then certainly they will jump to the third spot with 105 points, but if Misbah-ul-Haq’s men win the series by 2-1 they will be placed third but with 101 points.
On the other hand, Sri-Lanka can also climb up to the third spot if they win all three Test matches or Angelo Mathews and company win the series by 2-1 with 104 and 100 points respectively.
