India suffered a big loss due to Pakistan's victory: lost its place in the ICC rankings
Following their recent success in the three-match series against West Indies in Multan,
Babar Azam's Pakistan team managed to overtake India in the latest ICC ODI rankings released on Monday.
After a clean sweep in the series, Pakistan have 106 ratings points and are one point ahead of India.
New Zealand remains the number one team with 125 rating points. It is followed by England (124) and Australia (107).
Before the start of the series, Pakistan were placed fifth in the rankings with a rating of 102.
However, India will have a chance to climb up the rankings as they play England and West Indies (three ODIs each).
At the same time, Pakistan will now play its next ODI series in August.
Pakistan has done exceptionally well in the 50-over format in the last few years.
They have emerged victorious in all departments, including 2-1 series wins against Zimbabwe and South Africa.
When he visited Pakistan for the first time since 1998, he defeated Australia by the same margin as Pakistan's 3-0 win over West Indies.
Babar Azam has set an example for Pakistan in all formats due to his brilliant captaincy.
With his recent century in the first match against West Indies, he became the first batsman to score three consecutive ODI hundreds twice, before he achieved the feat in 2016.
With a half-century in the second ODI, he set a new record for the most consecutive 50-plus scores (in 9 innings) in international cricket across all formats.
The top-order ODI batsman has built up a terrific team of good players.
One of them is Imam-ul-Haq, who has shown his performance of late and has scored seven 50-plus scores in his last seven ODIs to show his efforts.
ICC Men's Player of the Year Shaheen Afridi has been the leader of the bowlers' group which includes Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan.
