Arthur eyes top four
Pakistan's head coach Mickey Arthur Monday set his team's goal at attaining top four position in the one-day rankings as they target another whitewash over the West Indies.
Leading the three-match one-day international series 2-0, Pakistan looks favourite to win the third and final match in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
They beat an off-colour West Indies by 111 and 59 runs respectively in the first two matches with complete dominance.
Pakistan will replace West Indies at number eight in rankings if they win 3-0 and displace their opponents to ninth.
Hosts England and top seven teams in one-day rankings will get direct berths in the 2019 World Cup while the rest vie for the remaining two places in a qualifying tournament.
"We don't want to think that we have won the series so back off because we have got so many more goals as a one-day unit to achieve and to be amongst the top four is one of them," said Arthur, also a former South African and Australia coach.
