His unhappiness stems from the recent announcement by the ICC that even if Pakistan, which lead the five-match ODI series 2-0 against the West Indies, manage to whitewash the series, it will not earn them a single rating point and they will still be placed at their current ranked sixth position.

“I can`t understand this system. There should be some advantage for the visiting sides as winning a series is never easy for them no matter who they`re playing against,” Afridi told a newspaper from Bridgetown.

Afridi questioned the system that offers little reward against lower-ranked opponents. Even a 4-1 or 3-2 win against the ninth-placed West Indies means a drop in points for Pakistan since they are expected to beat the hosts. “It`s really difficult to prosper under the current ranking system. I have little clue what it is based on,” Afridi said.

Afridi, however, said that despite the disappointment over the ratings system, his team remained focused on winning the series against the West Indies. “We`ll give our best to seal the series, which is our main focus. It will boost the morale of the young team.
