England-Pakistan Test Series

England would be looking to close in on fourth-placed New Zealand in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings in an upcoming two-Test home series while Pakistan could overtake England if they pull off victories in both matches at Lord’s (24-28 May) and Headingley (1-5 June).

Series Scenarios:

England win 2-0 – England 101 points, Pakistan 81

A 2-0 win for England will lift them to 101 points and within one point of New Zealand, with Pakistan losing six points with such a verdict and slipping to 81.

England win 1-0 – England 99, Pakistan 83

A 1-0 series win will see England gain one point and reach 99 while Pakistan will be on 83 points, four points below their present tally of 87 points.

Drawn series – England 97, Pakistan 88

A drawn series will see England lose one point and Pakistan gain one point, while Pakistan will improve substantially if they win the series.

Pakistan win 1-0 – England 94, Pakistan 93

A 1-0 series win will lift Pakistan by six points to 93 points and just one point below England

Pakistan win 2-0 – Pakistan 95, England 93

A 2-0 result will see them overtake England to reach 95 points.

Series schedule:

24th -28th  May – 1st Test, Lord’s, London

1st -5th June – 2nd Test, Headingley, Leeds

The Test team rankings, unlike the ODI and T20I rankings, are updated after the end of the series.

England captain Joe Root is the leading batsman from either side at 3rd position

Pakistan opener Azhar Ali (12th) dropped two places after the recent one-off Test against Ireland and this series provides him the opportunity to regain a place in the top 10 while Asad Shafiq (32nd) would be similarly looking to move up after dropping 7 places following the Dublin Test.

Pace bowlers Mohammad Assad (29th) and Mohammad Amir (37th) would be relishing the prospect of playing in English conditions after tuning up well for the series including a good account in the Dublin Test.
