Pakistan jumps to 4th in Test Cricket Rankings

Pakistan has progressed from the previous 6th to 4th place in the Test cricket’s rankings, largely due to “extraneous” circumstances.

Although Pakistan was beaten 2-1 by India in a three Test series earlier this year, these are the only two matches it has lost in the last 12 months.

Pakistan’s rating has also been helped by the fact that matches played in the 2000-01 period no longer count towards the standings. This was a year in which Pakistan lost at home to England and then drew in New Zealand and England.
