Pakistan is currently the number one Test side as per ICC rankings. However, the Pakistani cricket team has dipped to its lowest ever ranking in One-day Internationals (ODIs).

According to the latest ICC ranking for ODIs, Pakistan is placed at number 9. The team’s ranking suffered drastically after a disappointing 1-4 loss to England in the recently concluded series.

Pakistan had snatched number 1 position from India in Test rankings  after their washed out Test against West Indies in Trinidad.

Pakistan started the series on 87 points and are now on 86 points -- eight points behind eighth-ranked West Indies as the green brigade lost to England miserably.

With Pakistan's forthcoming ODI series scheduled against the West Indies and Australia, the team has left itself with a mountain to climb to keep alive its chances of qualifying automatically for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

England, being the hosts, and the seven highest-ranked sides on the ICC ODI team rankings as on September 30, 2017, will qualify directly for the ICC's pinnacle 50-over tournament, while the remaining two sides will progress from the 10-team ICC Cricket World Cup qualifier 2018.

 

India, meanwhile, are comfortably placed third with Australia and New Zealand holding the top two spots.
