    Fakhar Zaman jumps to number 16 in ODI batting rankings after terrific performances against Zimbabwe

    Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman has vaulted into the top-20 for the first time in his career in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings, which were released on Sunday following the conclusion of the West Indies-Bangladesh series, and also incorporates player performances from the Zimbabwe-Pakistan series.

    Fakhar scored 515 runs in the series and has gained a total of 22 places to move into 16th position. When the player rankings were last updated on 17 July following the England versus India series, and the three ODIs between Zimbabwe and Pakistan, Fakhar was 24th but his knocks of 210 not out in the fourth ODI and 85 in the final ODI helped him to gain eight more places.

    Fakhar is now the second Pakistan batsman to feature in the top-20 after Babar Zaman reclaimed the second spot after finishing the series with 184 runs. Babar now leads England’s Joe Root by seven points, while the list is headed by India’s Virat Kohli.

    Fakhar’s opening partner Imam-ul-Haq has also made a massive impact in the latest player rankings.

    Imam had gained 70 places after the first three ODIs, and moved up another 51 spots to finish the Zimbabwe tour in the 43rd position. In the five ODIs, the 22-year-old has gained 121 positions, thanks to his series aggregate of 395 runs that also included three centuries.

    In the bowling table, Pakistan wrist-spinner Shadab Khan and fast bowler Faheem Ashraf have made upward movements. Both bowlers collected nine wickets apiece in the series, and as such, Shadab has finished in 31st position (he started the series in 53rd position) and Faheem has ended up in 79th position (he started the series ranked 149th).

    Meanwhile, Bangladesh’s old war horses, Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah and Mashrafe Mortaza, have been rewarded for steering their side to a 2-1 series victory over the West Indies.

    Tamim scored centuries in winning causes to finish with 287 runs and this is reflected in the latest player rankings in which the left-handed opener has jumped four places to a career-high 13th position. His previous best ranking was 15th.

    Shakib, who finished with 190 runs in the series with two half-centuries, has jumped three places to 26th, while Mahmudullah is in the 38th position after moving up four places.

    Mashrafe not only led his side intelligently, but also excelled with the white ball when he finished as the leading wicket-taker with seven wickets. He has, therefore, earned a jump of eight places, which has put him back inside the top-20 in the 19th position.

    Jasprit Bumrah of India is the No.1-ranked bowler, and is followed by Rashid Khan of Afghanistan and Pakistan’s Hasan Ali.

    The West Indies may have lost the series 2-1, but there was something to smile for the home side.

    In the batting table, Shai Hope is now 45th (up by five places), Shimron Hetmyer is 59th (up by 77 places) and Chris Gayle is 66th (up by 12 places).

    In the bowlers’ list, Ashley Nurse is 38th (up by 25 places) and Devendra Bishoo is 92nd (up by 31 places).

    The player rankings will now be updated at the conclusion of Sri Lanka and South Africa ODI series.

    The ODI team rankings, unlike the Test rankings, are updated after each match.

    What is Zaman doing at 16? He is a much better batsman than that and should be in top 5. I rate him a better bat than Babar Azam.

    Good.

    However, I want our players to earn it, and not get a free cake by bashing only Zimbabwe/SL/BD.

    I'm hoping he can score in Eng and against the good sides.

    Most of the main players in the current team have played a relatively small number of matches.

    The improvement is obvious, which is why we've moved from #8/9 to #5 in just over a year's time.

    I don't even care, I'm still so happy we're ranked 5 that I don't notice our batsmen/bowlers moving up and down the rankings.

    It's been an amazing team effort these past 2 years in ODIs.

    2015 WC was the height of mediocrity followed by humiliation by Bangla bros. We didn't change overnight, but the trash more or less has been dumped out from the team. A pest is selected by Inzi every once in a while for every few young stallions he selects, but Mickey the exterminator takes care of it.

    Don't change the management, it's perfect rn.

    MSD is really twice tge batsman of fakhar zaman. You ask any international players. No one wud put fakhar ahead of msd in their battting line up.
    If msd comes at n.o 3 eor even open like fakhar ,he still can smash bowlers for fun.

    Even if he gets to bat twice he is unlikely to do it.

    Every cricketer has his time ( for reference I'll use Sanath) and what they can do at 25 cannot be repeated at 35 or even 40.

    May be.But to prove that we need to arrange a 5 match ODI series with Zim and send Dhoni at 3. But against other opposition we should keep Dhoni at 11.

    Great for Fakhar and expect him to break into the top 10 soon enough. Easily one of the most dynamic players in the world.

    I am 100 percent sure if msd comes early in batting order. He can score like alot. He comes at n.o 7 where he does not have much hitting ability left as it used to be.
    But its still difficult to get him out.

    If he only comes at n.o 3 or n.o 4 which virat will not do . Hopefully he does this.
    Anyway fakhar is new to the scene ,he will be sorted out by other teams soon. ..
    I am sure pakistan is not going to win matches against india.

    On the contrary.

    If India fields a 2nd string team, it will lose heavily to Pakistan.


    And I get so high.. And I just can't feel it....

    Well lets see. If that happens ,you would have role in the retirement of some indian players hopfully. There are some passesngers in the team.
    Ravi shastri our coach is the big elephant in the room.

    I didnt compare msd with fakhar,it was some other guy who had some doubt on current rankings

    Actually no..players like Rishabh Pant/Gill/Mayank etc have more hunger than some of outbreaks oldies.

    Can't believe ppl are comparing Dhoni (one of the worst batsmen atm) with Fakhar (one of the best). No wonder players like Dhoni are still in the team when they have blind *******.

    Who said one of the best ?one of best players doesnt rank at 16. Dhoni is worst and still he is at 15. Imagine dhoni during his whole career ,i dnt remember that how many times he has been out of top 10 ranking of batsman.
    Let fakhar play for some time and then talk.

    You can't expect someone who made debut an year ago to suddenly become top 5. I am not talking about history, i'm talking about what the players are doing in the present and recent past. Fakhar has a 100 in CT final, he was our best player in NZ (where rest of the players failed), he was incredible in T20I tri-series- scored 91 when the team was 2-2. And of course 200.

    Every time I've seen dhoni play, he has been terrible. Even ppl who aren't cricket fans would know when to accelerate. Even the crowed was booing at his batting.

    So yea current Dhoni shouldn't be compared with Fakhar.

    Well no way he is not. But rohit and dhawan are also consistently in top 10 or sometimes top5 ranking in the world .
    Frankly i have not watched fakhar playing. But let this man play some tough cricket.i have seen imran nazir,umar akmal playing for pakistan and i would say they were great talent. But we know how it went for them.
    Indian bowlers and pakistani batting in long term ,ispe vishvas krna asaan ni jldi...they perform only in patches and then fade away with time
