Pakistan have become the No. 1 in the ICC’s Test rankings for the first time since the International Cricket Council rankings were introduced in 2003.

They took the top position from India, following India’s washed out Test against West Indies in Trinidad.

Pakistan, who drew their recent Test series against England, are the fifth team to top the rankings.

Pakistan had moved to No. 2 on the table last week, after drawing the Test series in England 2-2 and after Australia were whitewashed 3-0 in Sri Lanka.

Ever since playing their Tests away from the country, Pakistan have played their Tests mostly in the UAE.

They have not lost a single series in the UAE and in the last five years, they have lost only two Test series, one to South Africa and one to Sri Lanka.

India are second in the rankings with 110 points, while England and Australia are in joint third place on 108 points.
