Babar Azam-led Pakistan team retained the second spot in the ICC World Test Championship standings after the Green Shirts whitewashed the Bangladesh series in Dhaka.

With 36 points from three wins, one loss, and a winning percentage of 75, Pakistan are only behind Sri Lanka — whose winning percentage is 100 — while Bangladesh are languishing at the bottom.

The series win against Bangladesh has given Pakistan a boost of 12 points, helping them stay above India, who have a win percentage of 58.33%.

Pakistan defied fading light to beat Bangladesh by an innings and eight runs and take the two-Test series 2-0 in Dhaka as off-spinner Sajid Khan claimed 4-86 and finished with a match haul of 12 wickets.

Pakistan won the first Test in Chittagong by eight wickets.

They finished the tour unbeaten, having won the preceding three-match T20 series 3-0.
