KARACHI: Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman has jumped to the second spot in the ICC T20I rankings for batsmen, after his spectacular performance in the recently concluded triangular series in Zimbabwe.
He was also declared the player of the series on the back of his superb display throughout the series. Zaman’s sequence of scores in Zimbabwe read 61, 6, 47, 73 and 91 enabled him to move up 44 spots on the table to reach the second spot with 842 points.
Finch, the captain of the Australia T20I side, also had a remarkable run during the tournament in Zimbabwe, scoring 68*, 172 – a world record in the format – 16, 3 and 47.
As these runs came on the back of the 84 he scored in the one-off T20I against England, Finch rose three spots from number four to become the new number one in the batsmen’s list.
He played no small role in Australia bouncing back from a spate of losses across formats in recent times, but it was still not enough for his team to win the title.
