Azhar's Men Need To Maintain ODI's Ranking |PakistanTribe.comDHAKA – The Pakistani Team can lose its ranking if it received a whitewash from the Bangladesh team in the ongoing ODI Series.

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.
