Pakistan drops a rating points despite series win against ZimbabweSeptember 1, 2013
Karachi: In spite winning the series against host Zimbabwe Pakistan has dropped one rating point while Zimbabwe has gained three ratings points on the Reliance ICC ODI Team Rankings Table.
Pakistan had entered the series leading Zimbabwe by 50 ratings points and this gap meant Pakistan was expected to win the series convincingly.
As such, because the rankings are weighted to reflect this difference, Pakistan’s failure to win all the matches has resulted in it conceding one ratings point and Zimbabwe gaining three ratings points.
Pakistan entered the series with 102 rating point but has retained sixth spot in the rankings even after dropping to 101 points. Meanwhile, a surprise victory for the host in the series has helped them jump to 55 rating points from 52 points.
