Pakistan cricket team climbs to world no.3 after historic win against Sri Lanka

Younis Khan plays an impressive shot as part of his 171 runs against Sri Lanka

Pakistan has climbed up the ladder to no. 3 position of ICC's international ranking after chasing its highest target of 377 against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.

Pakistan won with seven wickets to spare. It was the first time a visiting team scored more than 300 runs in the fourth innings to win a Test on Sri Lankan soil.

Pakistan's Younis Khan's impressive 171 ensured a series victory against Sri Lanka in nine years. Younis, who made his 100th Test appearance in the second match, ended the game just 19 runs away from surpassing Javed Miandad's tally of 8,832 runs to become Pakistan's leading scorer in Tests

Pakistan now trails second-ranked Australia by 10 points and leads fourth-ranked New Zealand by two points.
