Pakistan is one of the youngest sides in international cricket after only being set up in 1996 and making their international debut a year later before taking part in the 1997 World Cup where they finished last.
They made their test debut in 2000 against Ireland and have played just three test matches. They won gold at the 2010 Asian Games and were able to regain their title four years later.
A much-improving side, they need a period of consistency and there is no reason that they cannot break into the top sides in the world. Much will depend on how much support they get from the Pakistan Cricket Board.
