Pakistan dropped to 7th place after annual update in latest ICC T20I rankings

International Cricket Council (ICC) has released the latest team rankings across all formats after the annual update. Australia are on top of the rankings in Test cricket while India are at the apex position in both white-ball formats, ODI and T20I. Post the update, major changes have happened in the T20I team rankings with Pakistan dropping to as low as seventh place, even below the West Indies who are set to co-host the upcoming T20 World Cup along with the USA.

In the annual update, the results before May 2021 are no more in the consideration and that might have affected the overall ranking of Pakistan team. Also, they haven’t been at their best in the last 12 months in the shortest format losing when they have only played against New Zealand at home and away both. These results get the 100% weightage in determining the rankings and this is where Pakistan must have lost maximum points as they lost to the Kiwis 4-1 away from home and could only draw the series 2-2 recently at home.
