The Pakistan cricket team resumed its downward spiral in the World Test Championship points table on Tuesday, as Babar Azam’s side was defeated by England for the third time in a row. They were defeated by England by 8 wickets in the final test of the series, which took place in Karachi.
Ben Duckett and Ben Stokes, England’s captain, both remained unbeaten as their team easily reached their mark in the fourth innings.
Harry Brook, who batted in the middle order and was instrumental in all of England’s victories, was awarded Player of the Match and Player of the Series, both of which were well-deserved honours.
As a result of this defeat, Pakistan are now in seventh place on the WTC points table, which places them below West Indies.
After being swept in the series by England, they currently stand at 38.89 percent in terms of percentage points. Pakistan, who were hoping to make it all the way to the WTC final if they could have just beaten England, has been dealt a severe blow as a result of this loss.
With their new total of 46.97 percentage points, England have maintained their position as the fifth best team in the world.
The scoreboard currently has Australia securely in first place, with India now sitting in second place after their victory in the first test against Bangladesh. This victory moved India ahead of South Africa in the standings.
The winner of India’s second test match against Bangladesh and the rest of South Africa’s series in Australia will have a significant impact on who advances to the final of the World T20, which will be contested by the top two teams in the standings.
An important home series between India and Australia, which will once again be important in determining the outcome of the final, will take place in India.
