    WI are WT20 champions but the team that won the WT20 doesn't represent them in T20s anymore, and we played on some slow pitches that suit our style of cricket.

    We don't have a single batsman in our T20 lineup who can threaten the opposition. All we have is a bunch of accumulators that will struggle to go past 150 against quality bowlers and fielders.
    Even 150 is enough... for our bowling .....

    All those posters crying here about our batting, they should realize the best team on display is not the one who is best in every aspect (might be on paper) rather the one which knows its strenghts and weaknesses.

    Pakistan clearly knows its strength is its bowling however, batting is not that weak as people are making it out to be in T20s that is.

    Pakistan's bowling is definitely more capable of restricting the opposition to around 150 regularly than some top heavy batting lineups consistently making 200 or even 175.

    So to me its pretty deserving.

    Just enjoy the success brother, there is a time and place for being pesimmistic. At the moment you're just coming off as nothing but extremely bitter.
    but but but... T20 format and ranking.... both are CRAP !!

    I agree. Always ppl say pak canít chase anything over 150 in T20I or 320+ in ODIs which is true. But they are not letting the opponents to set such target. These ppl who say canít chase also claim ENGLAND has changed their brand of cricket since 2015 CWC. Even England canít set a target of 150+ in t20 or 250+ in Odis in their own den batting first against Sarfraz. England is yet to beat Sarfraz and his men. In summary pak canít chase any mammoth targets, true but they have a captain who ensure that opponents donít set such targets.

    Zampa is better then Malik and non chucking Professor

    Imad has dipped a lot after a bright start, personally I don’t think he merits a place in the team, I’d rather asghar or Raza Hasan

    Shadab is better yes

    Our bowling is easily best in the world in T20Is. We just need to make few changes in our batting line up to become invincibles. This can be an ideal T20 line up.

    agree with the rest

    This is the worst t20 batting lineup we have ever had
    In terms of performances, it wasn't a fluke because we didn't ride on luck to win unlike the Champions Trophy, where plenty of things went our way. However, our ranking is very misleading because this is a joke of a batting lineup.

    If we are put in to bat first on a flat wicket against a good team - we will still make a good score and hope for the bowlers to do enough to defend it. The challenge is when we have to chase large totals due to scoreboard pressure, playing under lights etc.
    World XIs don't tend to perform well most of the times. At least not as good as national teams because the motivation is not there. I won't look too much into that series.

    We didn't score 170+ vs SL in the UAE; we scored it in Lahore where the pitch was a little better than the UAE ones and the boundary was shorter as well. SL were dire with the ball and in the field, and a quality lineup would have piled up more.

    We clearly have one of the worst batting lineups in the world, and not a single batsman of ours gets into any top T20 side.

    As per some posters, the ICC should already hand us over the WT20 because no batting lineup is a match for us. I really fear for these people. The arrogance is palpable, and their heads are in the clouds after the CT. The imminent reality check is going to hit them very hard.

    A bit over the top don’t you think?
    You feel for these people?
    Their heads are in the clouds after the CT?

    Earth calling Mamoon, come in Mamoon!!

    We’re top of the T20 league and we won the CT 2017 in England..
    We’ve done well of late in both ODI’s and T20’s albeit against poor opposition but the consistency has been good and there are definite improvements in our bowling and fielding.

    These are things to be happy about.

    Leave the batting problems to the coaches and maybe start complaining again if and when we lose again.

    Self analysis and pushing yourself to be better in your field is something to commend but you risk becoming and extremely unhappy person if all you do is undermine people’s achievements.

    The CT was based on four games where a lot of things went our way. The T20I ranking is based on bashing poor WI and SL teams. It is good to be happy about it but let's not get overboard. We are far from being a top class side and there are major weaknesses in our team.

    I am not undermining the achievement, I am simply stating that it is not really indicative of what is going to come because we have tougher tests lying ahead. I don't have an issue with people stating that we have done really well over the last few months, but I have a problem with those who claim that only 1-2 teams are capable of beating us right now and even that is a stretch.

    This is the type of delusional and arrogant thinking that I am condemning. Our fans have the tendency of going overboard when they taste a tiny bit of success. Unfortunately it is something that is prevalent in our society as well, we get carried away easily

    It is important to keep things into perspective because there a lot of factors involved in those successes that we take great pride in. It is not just other people's achievements; I also tend to downplay whatever I have achieved in my life so far, and I don't feel unhappy. I feel calm, focused and prepared for failures that can happen any time.

    Anyway, this is turning into philosophical argument now. The point that I am trying to make is that unless we start beating the top teams more frequently, we should abstain from making tall claims. I remember how after we reached the number one ranking in Tests, we were supposed to beat New Zealand in New Zealand and Australia in Australia because we were supposedly the best Test team in the world, but then we all know what happened.

    We got a massive reality check and looks like we are in need of another one.

    Really surprising that this is PAKís first time. I hardly follow T20, therefore canít recall when ranking started, but PAK did make the first 2 WC finals, which I think is more creditable than this rank 1, which probably changes every month.

    Really should update rankings once a series has concluded.

    Pakistan are now on 124 points while New Zealand have slipped from their pre-series 125 points to 120 points.

    Pakistan have regained the top position in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings after having briefly attained the rank during the series between India and New Zealand.

    New Zealand had slipped behind Pakistan after India won the opening match of the three-match series against New Zealand and Pakistan once again find themselves at the top after India completed a 2-1 series win in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.

    Pakistan are now on 124 points while New Zealand have slipped from their pre-series 125 points to 120 points. India retain fifth position with an aggregate of 119 on the points table.

    T20 positions are too volatile and they keep changing rapidly as various teams are only within a few points of each other. As one can see the difference between number 1 and number 5 teams is only 6 points. Contrast this with test ranking where the gap between number one and number 2 is a huge 15 points.

    New Zealand bowlers Ish Sodhi and Trent Boult have made noteworthy gains in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Player Rankings after the three-match series in India, which the home side won 2-1 on Tuesday.

    Sodhi’s five wickets in the series have lifted him five places to the top-10 for the first time in his career. Left-arm pace bowler Boult, who grabbed six wickets including a haul of four for 34 in the second match in Rajkot which his side won by 40 runs, has reached a career-best 16th position after moving up 14 slots.

    Tim Southee (up five places to 81st) is another New Zealand bowler to move up while opener Colin Munro is a major gainer among batsmen. Munro has gained four places to reach 12thposition after scoring 123 runs in the series including an unbeaten 109 in Rajkot.

    For India, captain Virat Kohli’s 104 runs in the series have helped him consolidate his position at the top of the table as he has gained 13 points and increased the gap with Aaron Finch to 40 points. Openers Rohit Sharma (up three places to 21st) and Shikhar Dhawan (up 20 places to 45th) have also moved up.

    The India bowlers to move in the right direction are pace bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar (up two places to 26th), leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal (up 22 places to 30th) and left-arm spinner Akshar Patel (up 17 places to 62nd).

    Meanwhile, New Zealand have ceded the top place in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings to Pakistan. New Zealand have slipped from 125 to 120 points, with Pakistan taking the top spot at 124 points.

    Boult, who grabbed six wickets including a haul of four for 34 in the second match in Rajkot which his side won by 40 runs, has reached a career-best 16th position after moving up 14 slots.

    New Zealand are ahead of the Windies on decimal points while India have gained three points from the series but remain behind England on decimal points, in fifth place.

    A complete farce - an artificial ranking built on beating weak opposition. Any half-decent would go top in the rankings with the following schedule over the last two years:

    10 matches against West Indies - a team that doesn't play its full-strength team in T20s and usually doesn't perform well in bilaterals.

    3 matches against Sri Lanka - a rubbish team.

    3 matches against New Zealand - it was a good win, but the small boundaries bridged the gap between our batsmen and New Zealand's power-hitters.

    1 match against England - a good win, but one match proves nothing.

    2 matches against Scotland - no explanation needed.

    0 matches against India, South Africa and Australia. This side is at best the fourth/fifth best T20 team.

    "greatest T20 team of all time" with Shehzad, Sarfraz and Malik in the lineup, and 0 matches against three top teams.

    Totally agree and an even greater achievement if you consider that none of these players play in the 'best' league in the world.

    One thing to ponder is how can it be the 'best' league in the world if the players from the best team in the world aren't in it.

    Going by that logic, how can you be the 'best team', if you could only win 1 out 8 T2OIs and lost 6 of them with the country with the 'best league'. Nobody cares about T20 Internationals and the format itself is anybodies game.One hack could go berserk and win/loss the game in 2 overs.So rankings doesn't mean much.

    Consistent performances should count for something though shouldn't they? Credible wins against England in England, West Indies in West Indies and New Zealand in New Zealand.

    India will lose to Pakistan in a T20 bilateral played today. Our bowling attack in T20s is solid

    Nobodies bowling attack is solid in T20s. Its a hack fest on pattas. India had whitewashed Australia in Australia and also won in SA.But I wouldn't bet on we beating them next time.Such is the format.

    Dude, you barely managed to beat SL in CT which opened your way to the Trophy.Does that diminish your CT win? And SA played most of their T20 specialists and we beat them by 28 runs and 7 wickets which is not 'barely' even by ODI standards.

    Lol. Dude, its T20. Things happen. If I were to critically analyze every one of your T20 wins, then I can find similar things . But its futile. At the end of the day, its a hack-fest. That is how I see it.Bangladesh has equal probability of beating us in a T20 match as Pakistan or any other team.

    first of all you dont be so happy about your team no 1 ranking because your team won against windies C team, not so great SL team and NZ (after thrashing your team 5-0, dropped intensity and rested a few players as well). SA team that India beat was more talented than above mentioned teams.

    We saw what happened. India will comfortably beat us in a T20 series 9 out of 10 times. Kohli alone will win 4-5 games, as he has done against Pakistan throughout his career barring 2-3 games.

    You can only dream about beating India. huge gulf in class between Indian team and this Pakistan team. You will realize once you start playing against top teams. so far you have been beating minnows and poor teams. NZ is the only good team but it happened after they whitewashed you. record says, team whitewashing other team in one format, either lose or dont perform as well as they normally perform in immediate next series in different format.

    We will beat India in T20s because we don't have the likes of Akmal, Hafeez, Maqsood, Wahab, Sami, Irfan, and over the hill Afridi.

    The only liability is Shehzad. Once, Babar is back, he will be out.

    one off can happen. just like Scotland beat England other day. if it was a 5 match series, Eng would beat that Scotland team 4 out of 5 times easily.

    samething with Pak, India would beat them 4 out of 5 times if they had to play ODI series now.

    mishits were clearing the boundaries. thats what he meant. NZ batsmen are capable of clearing longer boundaries whereas Pakistani batsmen are not.

    Scotland beat England by 6 runs. A match England should have won had their batsmen kept their nerve.

    Pakistan made a mockery of the cricket team India sent into play that day. That one-off will leave some scars mate.

    do you want me to pick matches in the past where underdog thrashing big fav in the finals? 1983 WC? margin was huge for that total. similarly i can find a lot, i have to check on cricinfo.

    I can tell you it was the biggest margin of defeat in an ICC final. Guess who holds the record for the second biggest margin?

    Pakistan spanked both India and England (two favs of the tournament). Bottom line we won it when it mattered the most while India, England, and SA were blown away by our bowling but but it was just a one off game, but but it was only a CT final, it was nothing important-only the trophy was at stake.

    Last time I checked, the scoreline in ODIs was Pak 73-52 Ind. Cover that gap first and then start your chest thumping.

    3 matches against Sri Lanka - a rubbish team.

    3 matches against New Zealand - it was a good win, but the small boundaries bridged the gap between our batsmen and New Zealand's power-hitters.

    1 match against England - a good win, but one match proves nothing.

    2 matches against Scotland - no explanation needed.

    0 matches against India, South Africa and Australia. This side is at best the fourth/fifth best T20 team.

    "greatest T20 team of all time" with Shehzad, Sarfraz and Malik in the lineup, and 0 matches against three top teams.
    You're right when it comes to us not playing against the likes of Eng, Ind, SA, Aus etc, but I do feel we can give them a decent fight. Of course we'll lose a couple of games but we can win some as well, Shehzad is definitely one of the worst openers to ever play for Pak. Don't think there's anything wrong with Malik right now, I grew up watching him since 2011 and he was beyond terrible and I wanted him out but his form rose sharply in 2015 and is making waves. Sarfraz is a pretty good captain, borderline atrocious fitness but he still manages to do his job somewhat well.

    This is actaully a pretty outdated point. Which Pakistan batsman isn't capable of clearing longer boundaries? I am sure you saw first hand how Zaman struck plenty of 80+ meter sixes in the CT. Not just Zaman, pretty much Pakistan's entire T20 line up is made up of guys who can clear any boundary in the world. Even Sarfaraz has upped his big hitting game.

    Anyways i just saw a bit of highlights for Pakistan's second T20 in NZ and the sixes i saw would have been six anywhere in the world. So not sure how you came to the conclusion that most sixes were mishits.

    India will lose to Pakistan in a T20 bilateral played today. Our bowling attack in T20s is solid
    History says India does not stand a chance against Pak.
