New Delhi: Despite Virat Kohli's best efforts, the Indian team lost out to Pakistan by a single point in the latest ICC rankings for Test teams.
The Indians were all set to retain the top spot but a wash out in Port of Spain enabled Misbah-ul-Haq's side to dethrone them.
After Australia's 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Sri Lanka, India needed a win in the fourth Test. Unfortunately, rain played havoc to deny Kohli and co that honour.
Delighted by their team's rise to the top, Pakistan fans took to social micro-blogging site Twitter to troll Kohli.
While an India-Pakistan contest is off ICC's program for the moment, Indians fans will now be closely monitoring the rankings to get back at the Pakistanis.
