WI ranked 7th in ODI thanks to B’desh sweeping Pakistan

Pakistan has slipped one place to eighth in the Reliance ICC ODI Team Rankings after Bangladesh won the three-match series 3-0 in Mirpur on Wednesday.

Pakistan had entered the series on 95 ratings points but has now dropped to join the West Indies on 92 ratings points. And when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point, then the West Indies is ranked ahead of Pakistan.

In a sharp contrast, Bangladesh has gained five ratings points and now sits on 81 ratings points. This means only 11 ratings points separate seventh-ranked West Indies from ninth-ranked Bangladesh.
