Pakistan win T20 tri-series final against Australia

Australia-gets-thrilling-victory-over-Zimbabwe

Pakistan's win has seen them gain one point and move up to 132 points while Australia have slipped to 122 points from the tally of 126 points before a preceding one-off T20I against England on 27 June.

"I wanted to finish the game in 18 overs and I know I could have scored the century but I wanted to finish the game early".

The teams split the two group games of the tournament in Zimbabwe, with Pakistan powering to a 45-run win on Thursday.

Pakistani opener Fakhar Zaman thrashed the Aussies with a remarkable 73 runs followed by Asif Ali who contributed 37 to the total.

What the world of cricket saw recently in the victor of a triangular series involving hosts Zimbabwe, Australia and Pakistan was a side which continues to astound observers with their astonishing abilities to reach newer heights with every passing game.

Finch had a prolific run in the tri-series against Pakistan and hosts Zimbabwe, piling on 306 runs in five games at a strike rate of over 200, which included a world record 172 off 76 balls.

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

This is Pakistan's ninth successive T20 series win and has helped the team retain their top position in the T20 ranking.

It looked as though Australia had produced a masterstroke in opening the bowling with Glenn Maxwell's offspin as debutant Sahibzada Farhan was stumped off the first ball he faced and Hussain Talat sliced a catch to point three balls later to derail Pakistan's chase.

Pakistan's Fakhar Zaman moved to second place in the Twenty20 rankings for batsmen following his solid performance in the tri-series in Zimbabwe. That result also meant that Australia dropped to the third spot as they were overtaken by India after winning the three-match T20I series 2-1.

The top three sides are now separated by ten points, while three points separate fourth-ranked England and seventh-ranked West Indies.

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.
