KL Rahul attains career-best third T20I ranking

Australia vs Zimbabwe Aus vs Zim Zimbabwe Australia Travis Head Solomon Mire Glenn Maxwell sports news cricket Indian Express

The Man from Mardan, who made his name with a scintillating century in the ICC Champions Trophy final against India a year ago, was at it again in the Tri-nation T20 series decided against Australia on Sunday.

The 31-year-old Victorian eventually finished the T20Is (also comprising a one-off against England at Edgbaston) in the top position with 891 points.

As Finch, Zaman and KL Rahul became the new podium holders, they replaced an injured Babar Azam, Colin Munro and Glenn Maxwell and moved below them. 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. The left-hander scored, 61, 6, 47, 73 and 91 in the tournament.

Earlier, D'Arcy Short and Aaron Finch had taken Pakistan's bowlers to task in Australia's innings, putting on 95 for the first wicket. It's a career-best number for him, his first time in the Top 10, with 690 points, also a career high. 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.

MWC will be the launching pad of the next-gen Galaxy S phone which will also be the 10th Anniversary premium Galaxy flagship. The report insists an "entry-level" device will be offered alongside the regular S10 and larger S10 Plus.

The bowling performance by Pakistan in that 45-run victory was headlined by Afridi's fast-bowling excellence, but the likes of Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf were not too far behind in terms of the variations they provide to this Pakistani bowling attack. Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi is second, while Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh is third.

Rahul touched a career-high 854 points following the first match of the T20I series in England - which the visitors won 2-1 - where he scored a match-winning 101, but a dip in the next two games saw him finish with 812 points.

The top three sides are now separated by ten points, while three points separate fourth-ranked England and seventh-ranked West Indies. "We've shown our inexperience over the last six weeks, but we'll be much better for it", said Langer, who also hinted that Finch could also assume the captaincy role in Australia's one-day side. The tournament will feature 16 sides with the remaining six sides hoping to qualify for the World T20 via the ICC Men's World T20 Qualifier 2019.
