Aaron Finch becomes first player in T20Is to reach 900-point mark

"I've been doing a fair bit of work with recently about making sure I was watching the ball as hard as I can- Maxwell

After scoring 68 against Pakistan on July 2, Finch smashed his own world record by hitting 172 against Zimbabwe, the highest score by any batsman in T20I cricket.

Pakistan and Australia will play in the finals of the t20 Tri-series, tomorrow in Harare.

Australia are now one point behind India, who have remained on 123 points during this period, which included a 2-0 win over Ireland.

In the team rankings, Pakistan retained their spot at the top of the ladder following their win over Australia in the tri-series final, while India kept their second position, having beaten England 2-1.

His incredible production was duly rewarded as the latest rankings published by the ICC has seen him soar to the number two spot, behind just Australia captain Aaron Finch. After the 101 run knock, he had moved to 854 points in the rankings but subsequent scores of 6 and 19 brought his tally to 812 points.

"After this tour we'll have a really, really close look at everything we're doing at the moment, including our leadership, which is such an incredibly high priority in Australian cricket", Langer said after Sunday's loss to Pakistan. Fakhar and Malik both build up a terrific 107 run partnership and completely shifted the momentum towards the World No.1 T20 side. The side has been extremely dominant, defeating Pakistan by 9 wickets, followed by a 100-run over Zimbabwe.

Pakistan squad: Sarfraz Ahmed (c), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Hussain Talat, Haris Sohail, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir, Usman Khan Shinwari, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Sahibzada Farhan.

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 No10.

Finch, Zaman, and KL Rahul replaced an injured Babar Azam, Colin Munro and Glenn Maxwell in the top three spots. He ended with a career-best 581 points and the 25th place on the table.

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 No17 with 614 points), but perhaps the most breathtaking rise has been that of Zimbabwe opener Solomon Mire.
