Younis Khan and the skipper Misbah are in top 10 ranking now

Good news for Pakistan’s cricket fans. Legendary Younis Khan and skipper Misbah-ul-Haq are in top 10 batsmen list of test cricket by ICC.

Skipper is at number 8 meanwhile Younis Khan is at number 6. Australia can’t forget their defeat. Skipper’s fastest fifty and then fastest century is also forgettable. Both are proud of Pakistan.

1 K.C. Sangakkara Sri Lanka
2 A.B. de Villiers South Africa
3 Chanderpaul West Indies
4 A.D. Mathews Sri Lanka
5 H.M. Amla South Africa
6 Younus Khan Pakistan
7 D.A. Warner Australia
8 Misbah-ul-Haq Pakistan
9 L.R.P.L. Taylor New Zealand
10 J.E. Root England

If you noticed in the list above that Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lank are only countries, who have 2 batsmen in list. There is no any talented batsman from India, Bangladesh and  Zimbabwe. India is playing cricket only at home. They are not able to play cricket away and specially test cricket. That’s why then can’t be able to get this achievement.

Pakistan will continue tremendous performance in upcoming series against New Zealand, started from November 9th 2014 from a test match at Abu Dhabi. Team Pakistan is already at No. 3 in ICC ranking, I hope and praying that they will improve their ranking after beating New Zealand in same circumstances as Australia.
