Australia could find themselves second in the world Test rankings without playing a match.
The Aussie’s currently sit fourth but could jump to second if New Zealand beat Pakistan on Tuesday.
If the Black Caps muster a 2-0 series win at home, Australia will jumpt two spots to sit behind No.1 ranked India.
This is despite Australia winning just one of its past six Test matches including a 2-1 series loss to South Africa and a 3-0 series loss to Sri Lanka.
Australia was ranked No.1 just a few months ago.
