After a clean sweep in the three-match home series against the West Indies, Pakistan moved past India to the fourth spot in the International Cricket Council’s latest ODI rankings released on Monday. New Zealand are at the top of the table with 125 points while England are one point down on 124 and Australia are third on 107.
Before the West Indies series, Pakistan were ranked fifth in the rankings with 102 rating points. However, India has not played an ODI for the past several months. Pakistan have 106 rating points after their 3-0 win against West Indies.
The Indian team is scheduled to play one-day series against Ireland, England and then West Indies next month, which will give it a chance to improve the rankings. Babar Azam continues to top the rankings for batsmen while Shaheen Shah Afridi has this place among bowlers.
