Due to lack of home matches and a few other factors, Pakistan may not be able to play the 2019 Cricket World Cup. The World Cup, to be hosted by the English in 2019, will see the hosts and seven other top ICC nations compete. As of the latest rankings, the Pakistani team sits at the 8th position in the table. They are between Bangladesh and West Indies.On the conclusion of the Australian series, Pakistan still sits eighth in the eighth of the ICC Table.

The ICC Format: 

The present ICC rules dictate that the host nation along with the top 7 teams qualify directly for the World Cup. The bottom four teams then join then have to qualify. They along with 6 teams from the ICC World Cricket League take part in a ten team competition. Out of those, cut off the top 2 will join the first 8 of the Test Playing nation cut-off date for qualification is on the 30th of September 2017. Post that, all the remaining countries will be joining the lower league team competition.

Situation of Pakistani team: 

The Pakistan cricket team lost the series in Australia and their position in the table remains unchanged. They have two crucial series coming up with their points table neighbours.

“Pakistan could not improve its points’ position in a bid to qualify directly for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, even as there was little movement in the team rankings,” an ICC statement said.

It looks difficult for Pakistan considering how tight it is between these three nations and Pakistan plays both of them in the upcoming months. Due to the lack of home matches, Pakistani cricket is affected in general. The morale of the players not able to play at home is definitely a factor.

Upcoming series :

Pakistan is scheduled to host Bangladesh in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in February where they will play two Tests, three ODIs and a T20 Internationals.

Pakistan team then travels to the West Indies in March-April for two Tests, three ODIs and two T20Is. It is followed by the 2017 Champions Trophy, which will be held in the United Kingdom from June 1-18.

ICC’s rating system : 

ICC follows a weightage based rating system for ODIs. The performances of the teams in the last 12-24 months are considered. The opponent’s rating is also taken into account. In order to fit into the scheme of things, Pakistan must win their matches in the series. Only then can they qualify for the most coveted cricket trophy directly.
