This is the first time ever that Pakistan has reached the top of the T20I team rankings.

Since the appointment of Sarfaraz Ahmed as captain of the Pakistan side in the shortest format, the green-shirts have won 12 out of 14 T20Is, which contributed the most in Pakistan’s rise towards the top of ranking.

Pakistan was only a few decimal points behind New Zealand following its white-wash against Sri Lanka.

India’s win against New Zealand saw Kiwis losing three rating points which confirmed Pakistan as number one team.
