Not a great start for Pakistan in 2023
Is he better than Kohli? ��
At the moment? Of course.
However, just to be clear, his peak is nowhere near Kohli’s peak, because of his lack of a 4th or a 5th gear. Of course, he has time on his hands, so he could improve. But given what we have seen, he doesn’t seem to be improving and has stagnated. Kohli was improving his batting till 2018, whereas it seems like Babar hasn’t improved in areas like accelerating in the last 2 years.
Since the ICC ratings were in 2002
Total durationg of No.1 Ranking by each country
Australia 146 months
England 43 months
South Africa 24 months
India 20 months
NZ 18 months
New entry Pakistan
Pakistan 18 days
I think other teams were long enough at no.1 ranking not to care about it.
If it is just the World Cup then I guess there is no team but if you see other tournaments like the champions trophy for example, Pakistan won it from being ranked at the number 8 spot. You never know.One of india Pakistan or Australia will win. Even Lanka has a outside chance. That's it.
No team outside top 3 has won a title ? Is that correct? In odi based on history.
