Pakistan remains on the No.7 slot. However, they have gained 7 points to reach 95. The Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side is now just 2 points behind the 6th placed Sri Lanka. India continues to be on top of the rankings with 116 points.

Australia had shown tremendous fight in the first Test where they managed to draw the game on the last day. But the Pakistanis were too strong in the next Test as they thumped the visitors by a margin of 373 runs which proved to be the biggest win for Pakistan in Test cricket.

The next assignment for Australia in Test cricket will be the 4 matches at home against India. On the other hand, Pakistan will host New Zealand for 3 Tests in the UAE.
