There is a new World No. 1 T20 team in the world and that’s Pakistan.
Following the New Zealand’s heavy defeat against India today, Pakistan rose up to the 1st rank in the latest ICC T20 rankings. Pakistan was previously ranked 2nd, with 124 rating points – just 1 point behind the New Zealand’s 125 points.
Pakistan’s rise in the short formats of the game stays on the course. After winning the Champions Trophy and whitewashing Sri Lanka by 5-0 in the ODI series, Pakistan also clean swept them in 3-match T20 series.
Now, Pakistan becoming the World No. 1 in the shortest format of the game is the fantastic news for the fans, as well as the team itself. It’s also a great honor for Sarfaraz Ahmed, who after previously lead his team to the Champions Trophy title.
