KL Rahul Surges In ICC T20I Rankings, Aaron Finch Tops The Chart

Rahul's scores of 70, 101 not out, six and 19 in last four T20I matches have helped him move up nine places to a career-high third position. The opener, who rose to fame with that iconic century in the Champions Trophy final against India in the English summer of 2017, continued to impress one and all with his fine ability to take on the Australian and Zimbabwean attacks with zeal that would have made Saeed Anwar proud.

The latest rankings, which also take 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.

Captain Aaron Finch received some consolation after Australia's defeat in the tri series final against Pakistan, with news that he'd become the highest rated global T20 player since the format began.

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

Finch's blistering 172 against Zimbabwe propelled him to the 900-point mark.

No wonder he moved up 44 spots on the table to reach No 2 with 842 points, also the best in his short global career so far.

Insurers warn of rising premiums after Trump axes Obamacare payments again

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. India beat England by 2-1 to win the three-match series while Pakistan edged Australia in the final to lift the tri-series title.

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

Pakistan had lost two wickets in the first over of the chase but Zaman hit back with even more power, smashing 12 fours and three sixes. England, who now occupy the fourth spot are only three points ahead of West Indies, who are in seventh.

That challenging total set by the Zimbabweans was thanks mainly to Mire, who helped his team recover from the dismissal of Cephas Zhuwao from the very first ball of the morning.

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.
