    Pakistan's triumph against Australia in the Dubai Test ensured that the team will take fifth spot - pushing India down to sixth in International Cricket Council's Test rankings.

    Dubai: India are all set to drop a rung to sixth in the ICC Test rankings, replaced by arch-rivals Pakistan in the fifth position after Misbah-ul-Haq's men took a 1-0 lead in the ongoing series against Australia here.

    "Pakistan's victory in the Dubai Test has not only ensured that it will move ahead of India in fifth position irrespective of how the Abu Dhabi Test ends, it has dashed Australia hopes of regaining the number-one Test ranking," the ICC said in a statement. (Also read: Misbah hails Pakistan's crushing win against Australia)

    To move ahead of South Africa, Australia needed to win both the Tests. Now, their best series result can be a 1-1 draw, which will keep them in second position, three points behind South Africa.

    In contrast, if Pakistan win the second Test, then they will leapfrog England, Sri Lanka and India into third position.

    A 1-1 draw will mean they will finish in fifth place on 99 ratings points -- three ahead of India and two behind fourth-ranked Sri Lanka, while a drawn Test in Abu Dhabi will see Pakistan move to fourth place.

    If Pakistan wins this test i think they may well go to #3 in test ranking. This team has bunch of hard working players, gone are the days of stroke makers... Though i must warn you there are still 1 or 2 left. ;) One got out at 3.

    T20s is for chutiyas who takes a game for only face value. Even blind slogging can win you T-20 matches.

    Kohli might be from odi, yet he has to prove a lot.

    Maxwell? only good in T20
