Pakistan Vault Into Third Position in Test Rankings, India 6th
Pakistan have vaulted into third position in the ICC Test Team Rankings, their best Test ranking in seven years, following the conclusion of their series against Australia in Abu Dhabi.
The Pakistan team, that defeated Australia for its first series win in 20 years, has leapfrogged England, Sri Lanka and India into third position after the feat earned it seven ratings points.
This is Pakistan's best Test rankings since it claimed third position in January 2007 following the series in South Africa, which the home side won 2-1.
In contrast, Australia have retained second position on the Test table, but, after conceding six ratings points, the gap with number-one ranked South Africa has opened to seven ratings points.
