Pakistan has been brilliant in T20 Internationals. They are the number one side in T20 Internationals and are way ahead of the rest. They have 138 points and India on the number 2 has 127 points. They recently whitewashed New Zealand in the T20s in a three-match series.
Since the T20 World Cup in 2016, they have played 11 bilateral T20 series and have won each one of them and many of them have been whitewashes. In ODIs, they have done fairly. They won the Champions Trophy held in England in 2017. But they lost to New Zealand 5-0 in a bilateral series early this year.
They were also not able to reach the finals of the Asia Cup. They did manage to draw the recent ODI series against New Zealand. In Tests, they draw the series against England and managed to defeat Australia by 1-0. But they lost to Sri Lanka 2-0 earlier this year and in the current Test series against New Zealand, they are trailing by 1-0. If they can become consistent in Tests and ODIs they can become a very dangerous side.
They are number 5 on the list.Published 20 Nov 2018, 10:20 IST
