“Congratulations” Pakistan tops ICC Test ranking


LONDON,U.K (TNO) Pakistan’s test skipper Misbahul Haq Monday(22nd Aug) extended greetings to the nation after his team topped the ICC Test rankings.“Congratulations to whole nation and especially team Pakistan including everyone who is associated with the team in any capacity,” Misbah wrote on his verified Twitter account.“We have done it but we need to do a lot more to maintain it. Tough tasks ahead,” he added.Yesterday, Pakistan topped the ICC Test Team Rankings for the first time after wet ground at the Queen Park Oval, Port of Spain, denied India the opportunity to defend the top spot which it had reclaimed from Australia on 17 August.According to a statement issued by ICC, the result of the fourth and final Test means India won its series against the West Indies by 2-0, finishing on 110 points – one behind Pakistan and two ahead of third-ranked Australia. Following the Sri Lanka-Australia series, India had needed to win the Port of Spain Test to retain the number-one Test ranking.India had entered the series on 112 points, 44 points ahead of eighth-ranked West Indies. And because the rankings are weighted to reflect this difference, India’s failure to win by a better margin has resulted in it dropping two points and the West Indies earning two points.
