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.

Rahul led India to a win in the opening T20I of the three-match series with an unbeaten 101.

When the final ball of the tri-series was bowled, Fakhar had scored the most runs, 278, in a T20I series for Pakistan with scores of 61 off 40 balls, 6 off 11, 47 off 38, 73 off 42 and 91 off 45 balls - the last of which is his highest T20 score, a performance that he saved for the final against Australia.

Interestingly, earlier in the tournament, Finch had also reached a career-high 900 points, and the new number two on the table, Lokesh Rahul, did the same in the first match of three-T20I series in England, getting to 854 points.

ANP leader Haroon Bilour among 20 martyred in Peshawar blast
Bilour belonged to an influential political family in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, of which Peshawar is the capital. Haroon Bilour's 16-year old son, Daniyal, who was accompanying his father in the gathering, was also among the injured.

At the conclusion of the tri-series in Zimbabwe also involving Pakistan and Australia and later India vs England, the rankings were updated by the ICC.

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.

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.

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.

Trump administration freezes risk adjustment payments
Eventually, experts say, some insurers could simply get fed up and exit ObamaCare markets, leading to fewer choices for consumers. The agency says the court ruling also prevents it from collecting additional risk-adjustment funds until the issue is resolved.

Short broke into the top-10 for the first time in his career in 10th position, moving up 18 places.

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

Glenn Maxwell hit a half-century for Australia as they chased down Zimbabwe's 151 for nine with a ball to spare in a tightly-contested Twenty-20 match Friday. England, who now occupy the fourth spot are only three points ahead of West Indies, who are in seventh. The remaining six sides will qualify from the 14-team Qualifier 2019.
