New Zealand beat Bangladesh in the first Test in Wellington by 7 wickets propped up by a Kane Williamson quick-fire century.

According to the ICC, if New Zealand wins the Test, it will move one point ahead of Pakistan, which is currently at the no. 5 spot in the rankings.

In case of a draw, the black caps will join Pakistan at 97 points, but will lag by a fraction of a point.

Pakistan recently slipped to the fifth spot on the back of a 3-0 series loss to Australia despite reaching the top spot on the rankings.
