Pakistan stable at eighth position in latest ODI rankings


LAHORE: Pakistan’s position has become steady at eighth slot in latest International Cricket Council (ICC) one-day international (ODI) rankings after a 2-1 victory against West Indies in three-match series.
Pakistan are standing on eight position with 90 points whereas West Indies’ points have dropped to 83 due to defeat.
In the list, South Africa have maintained top spot with 119 points whereas Australia secured 118 points and placed on second position. However, the arch rival India clinched fourth position with 112 rating.
Earlier, Shoaib Malik scored an unbeaten century as Pakistan beat West Indies by six wickets to clinch victory in their one day international series in Guyana on Tuesday.
Malik sealed the win — and his ton — in spectacular fashion, smashing a six off West Indies captain Jason Holder to wrap up victory with nearly seven overs to spare.
Malik’s 101, which included two sixes and ten fours, was matched by an assured 81 from Mohammad Hafeez as Pakistan finished on 236 for four in reply to the home side s 233 for nine.
