Pakistan move up on ICC Test Team Rankings After Sweeping South Africa

After finishing the series 2-0, Pakistan secured 5th place in the ranking of the International Cricket Council (ICC) of South Africa. Pakistan is now number five in the test team ranking, overtaking Sri Lanka and South Africa.

Pakistan won the second test match at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium convincingly with 95 runs and whitewashed the Proteas in the historic series. This was Pakistan’s first Test Series win against South Africa in 17 years.

Hasan Ali bowled brilliantly in his comeback test series and scored a 10 wicket move in the second test match. After South Africa’s solid comeback in the fourth innings, Hasan and Shaheen staged their own comeback, wrapping up the South African batting unit after the second new ball.

Shaheen Afridi took 4 and Hasan 5 wickets in the fourth innings to give Pakistan a comfortable series win.

Mohammad Rizwan scored a brilliant century in the third innings to set a formidable goal for South Africa that they ultimately failed to pursue.

Pakistan bounced back after a disappointing tour of New Zealand, where it lost the Test series 2-0 and previously lost the Test series to England 1-0. Pakistan will climb the rankings and have 90 rating points, 18 behind fourth-placed England.
