Misbah-Ul-Haq’s side has become only the fifth team after Australia, England, India and South Africa to top the ICC test rankings since these were introduced in 2003 Pakistan’s chances picked up after a splendid 10-wicket win over England which Levelled the recently concluded four-test series. Pakistan is leading the ranking table with 111 points. India slips to second place with 110 points. ICC Chief Executive David Richardson congratulated Pakistan on achieving the number-one test ranking. He said that Misbah and his side deserve our heartiest congratulations. To mark Pakistan’s number-one test status, it will be presented with the ICC test championship mace. The details of the presentation ceremony will be announced in due course. The battle for the number-one ranking between the two Traditional Rivals will resume in September/October when New Zealand will visit India and Pakistan will host the West Indies in the UAE. Both the series will be three-test rubbers.
