Pakistan’s fifth spot in ICC Test Rankings is in danger as New Zealand can snatch the position from the Men in Green if they win second Test against Bangladesh at Christchurch.
Pakistan are ranked at 5th place with 97 points followed by the Blackcaps at 6th spot with 96 points. If the Kiwis defeat Bangladesh in the upcoming Test they will lead Pakistan by one point.
However, if the second Test of the series between the two teams ends in a draw, then Pakistan will lead New Zealand by fraction of points.
New Zealand won the first five-day game of the series against Bangladesh by seven wickets with the courtesy of Kane Williamson’s brilliant ton.
Pakistan slipped to fifth spot after getting whitewashed by Australia in the three-match Test series.
