New Zealand’s series win push Pakistan to no.6 in Test Rankings

Pakistan’s slide in the ICC Test Rankings continues after being crowned the prestigious ICC Test Championship Mace in September last year.

The Kane Williamson-led New Zealand leapfrogged Pakistan on Monday to seize the no.5 spot in the ICC Test Rankings after thrashing touring Bangladesh 2-0.

Earlier in the season, Pakistan were at the end of a 2-0 whitewash by New Zealand during their brief stopover in the country before a comprehensive tour of Australia.

However, the change of venues did not change Pakistan’s fate as they were whitewashed 3-0 — their fourth consecutive Test series defeat in Australia. Pakistan are now one point below New Zealand at the sixth spot.

India, who beat England 3-0 at home, firmly hold the no.1 spot with Australia and South Africa at no.2 and no.3 respectively.
