Pakistan beat Australia to clinch tri-nation T20I series in Zimbabwe

  • Aaron Finch is currently rated 4th in the ICC T20I batting rankings

In the latest player rankings, which also takes into account India's 2-0 and 2-1 series win against Ireland and England, respectively, Finch leads Pakistan's left-handed opener Fakhar Zaman by 45 points.

Australia will bat first in their Twenty20 tri-series final against Pakistan after captain Aaron Finch won the toss.

Speaking exclusively to Geo.tv, Fakhar said PSL played an important part in growing him as a player.

Zaman combined with veteran Shoaib Malik (43 not out) for a fourth-wicket partnership of 107 as Pakistan passed Australia's total with four balls to spare - their highest successful run-chase in T20Is.

On the other side of the coin, Finch had a better time of it in England, and dominated the T20I tri-series - he was the leading run-scorer with 306 runs in five innings at a strike rate of 201.31, including a stunning world-record 172 against Zimbabwe.

With three wins from 11 games across two formats, Langer's first few weeks in the top job have been as tough as it gets, thanks to a mass exodus of key players through suspension and injury.

Zimbabwe was not able to salvage some pride when it lost it's final triangular series match against Australia by wickets at the Harare Sports Club today.

Injured Babar Azam, Colin Munro and Glenn Maxwell all moved down, occupying the three spots below Finch, Zaman and Rahul, while further down on the list, there were more such interesting changes. The superb performance in the series saw him jump 44 places to No 2 with 842 points. He had a fantastic tri-series tournament where he scored 61, 6, 47, 73 and 91 runs to help his team beat Australia in the final.

Short broke into the top-10 for the first time in his career in 10th position, moving up 18 places.

Mire started the triangular series with a big reputation but not much in terms of numbers in T20I cricket, but nearly single-handedly kept Zimbabwe hoping for a spot in the final with two magnificent innings. The standing, a career-best number for him, takes him to 690 points, also a career high.

In the England vs India series, players with career-best points were Jason Roy (up 19 spots to No. 15 with 641 points) and Jos Buttler (up nine places to No. 17 with 614 points).
