Pakistan is at the seventh position in the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI ranking with 95 points, but if Pakistan lose the ODI series by 3-0 then it has to face the worst ranking of its existence.
A victory of Team Pakistan by 2-1 would not affect the standing in the ranking with Pakistan to remain at the seventh position.
However, there are no chances for Bangladesh to improve its standing in the ranking even if it beats Pakistan by 3-0.
If Bangladesh wins by 3-0 it will help Caribbean team to upgrade their status to seventh spot and Pakistan will fall at teh eighth spot.
If Pakistan Team lost by 2-1 that will not affect the ranking position of both the countries but will reduce the points of Pakistan from 95 to 92 points in the ranking table.
Recent Ranking of the ICC is:
Rank Team Rating
1 Australia 122
2 India 116
3 South Africa 112
4 Sri Lanka 108
5 New Zealand 107
6 England 101
7 Pakistan 95
8 West Indies 92
9 Bangladesh 76
10 Zimbabwe 50
11 Ireland 44
12 Afghanistan 38
Other stats suggests that Pakistan has never lost a series against Bangladesh, and Bangladesh won the last ODI against Pakistan during the World Cup 1999.
Bangladesh has nothing to lose in terms of ranking whether they won or loss, but Pakistan has to fight the battle of its Ranking.
