For many years since now, Bangladesh has been instigating in number ninth position in the point table. Although sharp performance in recent times defeating England at home and coming victorious in the hundredth Test occasion in Sri Lanka helped Tigers to accumulate some points, it has not, however, changed the position yet.
At present Bangladesh is carrying 69 rating points, 6 points behind eighth positioned West Indies who have 75 points in their bag.
If Bangladesh could take the series 2-0 against Australia, the home team’s rating point would increase up to 81, hence they have a fair chance to raise in number eighth position in the point table.
Neighboring India is now the top ranked Test team, with 125 points, they are crowning the Test playing nations.
With 110 points, South Africa is holding the second position while England and Australia are in the third and fourth positions respectively.
