It should be noted that Pakistan, under the leadership of Misbah-ul-Haq, became the top team in test format after leveling the four-match series against England this summer.
However, Sri Lanka’s whitewash of Australia and India, failing to achieve a whitewash over West Indies, also helped Pakistan to climb the fruit chain.
The Test mace will be presented by ICC CEO David Richardson during a presentation ceremony on 21st September at 10.30 am Pakistan Standard Time (PST).
Pakistan tops the test ranking with 111 points followed by India with 110 point. Australia and England are at third and fourth place respectively with 108 points each.
