The Kangaroos will need to win at least one of the three remaining games in the series to climb back above Pakistan to fifth.</p> <p></p>According to <em>cricket.com.au</em>, the last time Australia found themselves in sixth position was way back in January 1984. It has been a swift fall for the defending world champions in the recent past. Less than two years ago, they were ranked No.1 heading into an away series against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a>, where they were whitewashed 5-0. <p></p> <p></p>Thereafter, the five-time world champions have lost 13 of their 15 completed ODIs, in which time they have lost three successive bilateral series -- to New Zealand,<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india/"> India</a> and England -- and exited the Champions Trophy at the group stage. England, India and South Africa currently occupy the top three spots in the ICC One-Day International (ODI) rankings.
