ICC T20I Team Rankings Scenarios After Pakistan-Australia Series

Australia’s historic tour of Pakistan is set to come to an end as the two teams face off in the one and only T20I match tonight. The match will take place on Tuesday at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore as the two teams look to end the tour on a high.

Australia will be hoping to end their historic tour by quickly bouncing back from a disappointing ODI series loss. The Kangaroos were magnificent in the three-match Test series as they defeated the Men in Green 1-0, winning the third and final Test match at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.

Pakistan bounced back in the ODI series after a disappointing outcome in the Test series. The Green Shirts suffered a loss in the first ODI before staging an amazing comeback in the next two ODIs to take home the series 2-1.

Both the teams will be looking to win the one-off T20I and improve their team ranking in the shortest format of the game. According to the current rankings, Pakistan are ranked at the third spot while Australia are ranked number 6 in the world.
