ICC unveils latest test cricket rankings, Pakistan faces an embarassing blow

ISLAMABAD - After being dismantled by Australia in their backyard, Pakistan’s cricket team’s Test ranking has taken a major blow.

The Men in Green are now behind the West Indies and Sri Lanka. Here are the updated ICC Test rankings: S/NTeamWeighted MatchesPointsRating 1. India 42 5,046 120 2. New Zealand 26 2,829 109 3.
