The three match T20I series that is to be begin from 24th Janurary, 2020 is going to be the series of battle for ranking for team Pakistan as they can slide to bottom positions losing either one, two, or all three matches of the series.
It is going to be a challenging series for Pakistan as only one single defeat can affect their position in ICC T20I rankings and they can swipe from number 1 position to any other.
Pakistan haven’t won the last T20I series. They lost by 0-2 however, one of the match of last played home series against Sri Lanka was whitewashed that has saved their title called “Number 1 T20 team in the world”. And then Australia beat the team twice which continued to their losing streak under newly appointed captain, Babar Azam. This time, it is not going to be easy so far as one defeat is going to decide the luck.
If Pakistan wins all the three matches, they will retain their top rank but, If they win the series 2-1, they will drop down to the second spot. 3-0 in favor of Bangladesh will hugely cost the green shirts as they will then have to deal with third spot.
Ranking pressure being still on Pakistan as the series is going to begin in Lahore. Let’s see how men in green are going to perform in front of the home crowd.
