After a stellar run of form in ODI cricket, Pakistan have climbed to number two in the rankings. Having last won the tournament in 2018, the men in green will be eager to add to their tally. Pakistan have a settled batting unit, and their pace bowling attack is arguably among the best in the world. The highly anticipated return of Shaheen Shah Afridi is an exciting prospect, as fans across the globe will certainly keep a close eye on any developments. Not often can you term Pakistan as an established ODI unit, but they sure do look like a solid side at the moment.
