Scenario: This is how Pakistan can again become No.1 Test team!
India have managed to dethrone Pakistan from the No.1 rank as Virat Kohli led side have managed to beat New Zealand quite comprehensively in the Eden Gardens Test.
The win meant India have clinched the series against New Zealand with one Test match to be payed in the series and can stay No.1 with a good result in the third Test. However, Pakistan who are dethroned after being No.1 for the first time since the inception of ICC rankings in 2003 have a slim chance to retain their top ranking.
But the No.1 ranking is not in their hands altogether. India will need to lose the last Test against New Zealand at Indore and have to win the series only by 2-1 to give a chance to Pakistan to reclaim their position as the top ranking side.
However, it is not so easy as Pakistan will need to whitewash the upcoming Test series against West Indies 3-0 and hope that India will lose the Indore Test against New Zealand who have not looked dangerous in the series so far.
But even if India manages to draw the match at Indore, they will keep hold of the No.1 ranking for the foreseeable time.
Pakistan to No.1
India should lose the last test match against New Zealand at Indore
Pakistan should whitewash West Indies 3-0 in the upcoming test series
India to stay at No.1
India should not lose the Indore test. Even a draw would retain their top ranking. While a win will tighten their grip on the No.1 ranking.
India just need to win the 3-match Test series by a margin of 2-0 v New Zealand to become #1 Test side, even if Pakistan bt West Indies 3-0
