Pakistan having a chance to improve its Reliance ICC Test Championship Rankings PDF Print E-mail
ISLAMABAD, June 20 (APP): Pakistan will have a chance to improve its  Reliance ICC Test Championship Rankings when it goes head to head against its Asian rival Sri Lanka in the three-Test series which starts at Galle on Friday. Pakistan currently sits in fifth position on 108 ratings points while  Sri Lanka is in sixth spot on 99 ratings points, says a press release issued here. If Pakistan wins all the three Tests of the series, then it will join  Australia on 112 ratings points while in the case of a 2-0 series win it will move up to 111 ratings points. A 2-0 or 3-0 series win will lift Pakistan’s into second place behind England following the update.

However, even if this happens, South Africa would still have the  opportunity to overtake both Pakistan and England and reach number-one with a good result in its upcoming series in England.
Meanwhile in the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for Test batsmen,  Pakistan’s Younus Khan will be aiming to return into the top three. Younus is currently sitting in fourth position, 22 ratings points. Azhar Ali will also be aiming for upward movements.
Azhar Ali is the second highest-ranked Pakistan batsman after Younus  Khan in 12th position. The youngster will have a good opportunity to break into the top 10 for the first time in his career as he trails 10th-ranked Alastair Cook of England by seven ratings points.
Spinners from either side dominate the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for  Test bowlers with Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal occupying second place and Sri Lanka’s left-arm spinner Rangana Herath sitting in fourth spot.
Saeed trails number-one ranked Dale Steyn of South Africa by 51 ratings  points while the off-spinner leads left-arm spinner Herath by 66 ratings points.
Pakistan’s Abdur Rehman is also currently enjoying his career-best ranking of 10th and given he is still in the qualification period for bowlers, it is likely that he will move further up the ladder depending on how he performs in the Galle Test.
Pakistan’s fast bowler Umar Gul is the other bowler inside the top 20 in  16th spot and will be aiming to improve his ranking.
