    Fakhar Zaman rises to number 2 and Babar Azam drops to 5 in latest ICC T20I rankings for batsmen

    Aaron Finch, Fakhar Zaman and KL Rahul have leapfrogged the existing table-toppers to become the top-three batsmen in the T20I rankings.

    The MRF Tyres ICC T20I Players Rankings for batsmen had a brand new 1-2-3 at the end of the series between England and India, which the visitors won 2-1, and the triangular series in Zimbabwe, where Pakistan beat Australia in the final.

    Finch, the new captain of the Australian T20I side, had a remarkable run during the tournament in Zimbabwe, scoring 68*, 172 – a world record in the format, 16, 3 and 47.

    Coming as these runs did on the back of the 84 he scored in the one-off T20I against England, Finch rose three spots from No.4 to becoming the new No.1 batsman. 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 tri-series title.

    Fakhar Zaman had an outstanding series in Zimbabwe, slamming three half-centuries Fakhar Zaman had an outstanding series in Zimbabwe, slamming three half-centuries
    That was in a major part due to Fakhar Zaman. Zaman, who Finch had called “a real thorn in our side” before the final, slammed a career-best 91 in just 46 balls in the final, his blitz helping Pakistan cross Australia’s 183/8 with four balls in hand.

    Zaman’s performance in the tournament was spectacular and his rise in the rankings equally so. His sequence in Zimbabwe read 61, 6, 47, 73 (his career-best score before the final) and 91. No wonder he moved up 44 spots on the table to reach No.2 with 842 points, also the best in his short international career so far.

    Interestingly, earlier in the tournament, Finch had also reached a career-high 900 points, and the new No.3 on the table, KL Rahul, did the same in the first match of three-T20I series in England, getting to 854 points.

    The century at Old Trafford helped KL Rahul move up to No.3 on the table The century at Old Trafford helped KL Rahul move up to No.3 on the table
    That was after he had led India to victory in the first game of the series with an unbeaten 101. He dipped from there, but 6 and 19 in the next two games ensured he was up nine spots since the last update at 812 points.

    The 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.

    D’Arcy Short, Finch’s opening partner, had an up-and-down run in Zimbabwe, but scores of 46 and 76 – in the final – during the course of the tournament helped him jump 18 places to No.10. It’s a career-best number for him, his first time in the Top 10, with 690 points, also a career high.

    Solomon Mire jumped an astonishing 202 spots in the rankings Solomon Mire jumped an astonishing 202 spots in the rankings
    Among others ending the England v India series with career-best points were Jason Roy (up 19 spots to No.15 with 641 points) and Jos Buttler (up nine spots to No.17 with 614 points), but perhaps the most breath-taking rise has been that of Zimbabwe opener Solomon Mire.

    Mire started the tri-series with a big reputation but not much in terms of numbers in T20I cricket, but almost single-handedly kept Zimbabwe hoping for a spot in the final with two magnificent innings.

    He started slowly with 27 and 28 in the first two games but then slammed 94 – Zimbabwe’s best in the format – and 63 in the last two to rise an incredible 202 places in the rankings. He ended with a career-best 581 points and the 25th place on the table.

    Australia opener Aaron Finch became the first player in the history of Twenty20 Internationals to break the 900-point mark as he moved up three places to finish the tri-series in Harare against Pakistan and Zimbabwe as the top-ranked batsman in the shortest format of the game.

    Pakistan Opener Fakhar Zaman vaults 44 places to second in latest player rankings

    KL Rahul is now India’s highest-ranked batsman in third position; Zimbabwe’s Solomon Mire claims 25th spot after rocketing 202 places

    Bowlers Andrew Tye, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, David Willey and Billy Stanlake break into the top-20 after achieving career-high rankings


    Australia and nine highest-ranked sides on the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings as on 31 December 2018 will qualify directly for the ICC Men’s World T20 2020

    Finch, who captained Australia to the final, had touched the 900-point mark following his record-breaking knock of 172 (76b, 10x6, 16x4) against Zimbabwe in Harare on 3 July. The 31-year-old from Victoria eventually finished the T20Is (also comprising a one-off against England at Edgbaston) in number-one position on 891 points.

    Finch had started the T20Is in fourth position on 763 points and a tour aggregate of 391 runs not only helped him leapfrog Babar Azam, Colin Munro and Glen Maxwell, but also earned him 128 points.

    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.

    Like Finch, Fakhar was in stellar form in Harare, when he totaled 278 runs in the series, including a match-winning 91 against Australia after Pakistan had slumped to 2/2 after being set a victory target of 184.

    Jason Roy and Jos Buttler reached career-best positions despite England losing the T20I series to India Jason Roy and Jos Buttler reached career-best positions despite England losing the T20I series to India
    Fakhar’s string of good scores, that also included knocks of 61, 6, 47 and 73, have helped him vault 44 places to claim second position. He has now become Pakistan’s highest-ranked batsman after Babar Azam slipped from first to fifth due to his absence because of an injury.

    India’s KL Rahul’s scores of 70, 101*, 6 and 19 have made him India’s highest-ranked batsman after he moved up nine places to a career-high third position. Rohit Sharma in 11th rank (up by two places) and captain Virat Kohli in 12th rank (down by four places) are the next highest-ranked India batsmen.

    Australia’s D'Arcy Short, Jason Roy of England and Solomon Mire have also achieved career-best rankings following the latest update.

    Short has broken into the top 10 for the first time in his career and is in 10th position, moving up 18 places. Roy has gained 19 places and is now in 15th spot while Mire has rocketed 202 places to claim 25th position – seven places behind Hamilton Masakadza.

    In the bowling table, Rashid Khan of Afghanistan and Shadab Khan of Pakistan have retained the top two positions, but there have been a number of movements down the order with Australia’s Andrew Tye and Billy Stanlake, and England’s trio of Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett and David Willey achieving career-high rankings.

    The 12 wickets he picked up helped Andrew Tye reach No.7 on the chart The 12 wickets he picked up helped Andrew Tye reach No.7 on the chart

    Tye has risen 41 places to seventh in the latest rankings after taking 12 wickets in Harare, Rashid has claimed ninth position after moving up four places, Plunkett has gained 14 places and is now in 11th spot, Willey has risen 12 places to 15th and Stanlake’s seven wickets have given him a leap of 60 places that has put him in 19th position.

    Other bowlers to head in the right direction include Mohammad Amir (12th, up by six places), Hardik Pandya (29th, up by five places), Mohammad Nawaz (32nd, up by nine places), Faheem Ashraf (33rd, up by 21 places), Kuldeep Yadav (34th, up by 41 places) and Ashton Agar (45th, up by 39 places).

    There is no change in the top three all-rounders, with Maxwell leading the field. Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi is second while Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh is third.

    Meanwhile, in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings, Pakistan have retained the top position with their tri-series victory while India have overtaken Australia to take second place after clinching their three-match series against England 2-1. The top three sides are now separated by 10 points, while three points separate fourth-ranked England and seventh-ranked West Indies.

    Team rankings remain crucial as Australia plus the next nine highest-ranked sides will qualify directly for the 16-team ICC Men’s World T20 2020 in Australia. The remaining six sides will qualify from the 14-team ICC Men’s World T20 Qualifier 2019, which will be participated in by the six sides from the ICC World T20 2016, which are not in the Top 10 of the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings as on 31 December 2018, alongside the eight qualifiers from the regional finals.

    FZ gained 44 spots in one series, KL hit one century and failed in 2 other innings and he is at 3 now (jump by 9 spots). D'Arcy Short is better than Sharma, Kohli, Morgan, Buttler etc.

    Kuldeep Yadav is 34th (avg 13, eco 7.2) while Chahal is 4th (avg 19, eco 7.8).

    Absurd.

    Pakistan have 2 batsmen in top 5 and we have just 1 in top 10. And we say, our batting is superior.

    We've to accept the fact and there is no shame in it to accept that Pakistan is the # 1 ranked team. We are ranked 2, and deservingly so.

    Rankings are unreliable unless India or their players are near the top in which case they are the most important thing

    This is not the be all and end all,
    You have 6 batters who can win you a game, so they don't all need to fire regularly.
    We only have 2 guys who can do this, so they need to be a lot more consistentl. Hence their rankings.
    I'm not saying you are a better T20 side than us, but it does not come down to individual rankings


    If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got #improve
