DUBAI: Pakistan has retained the No.1 T20 team spot in the current ICC T20 Team Ranking table updated after Australia claimed the final of the tri-series against New Zealand Wednesday.
According to the latest update, Pakistan holds on to top spot in ICC’s T20 rankings despite Australia’s perfect tri-series campaign.
Earlier Cricket.com.au had claimed that if Australia ended the tri-series unbeaten, they’d edge ahead of currently throned Pakistan to claim the spot.
But, their calculation proved to be a ‘clerical error.’
ICC’s updated T20 team ranking showed that Pakistan was still ahead of Australia by a fraction of margin, thus they’d retain the crown.
In a statement on Wednesday night, the ICC said that when the points are rounded off, Australia are on 125.65 points, 0.19 behind Pakistan on 125.84.
