The 5 match ODI series between Sri Lanka and Pakistan will start today. So rankings can change a lot between these three teams as they all will be playing at almost same time. 

If Bangladesh beat 3-0 against South Africa then their rating point will become 100 and they will climb up to 6th position. But Pakistan will stay at 6th if they beat Sri Lanka 5-0 or 4-1.

If South Africa beat Bangladesh 3-0, then Bangladesh’s rating point will decrease to 92 but if Sri Lanka beat Pakistan 5-0 then Sri Lanka’s rating point will be 91 and Pakistan’s point will be 89. In that case, Bangladesh can climb up to 6th.

If Bangladesh lose 2-1 against South Africa then Bangladesh’s point will be 95 and if Bangladesh win 2-1 and if Sri Lanka lose by 3-2 then also Bangladesh can climb up to 6th and Pakistan will come down to 7th.
