Pakistan emerged champions on Sunday, beating Australia by 6 wickets in the T20I tri-series final held at Harare sports club. In New Zealand, he scored a fifty and then a 40 odd. Australia managed to finish at 183 for the loss of 8 wickets.

But the left-hander had played a pivotal role a match earlier against the home side with a 42-ball 46, ensuring captain Aaron Finch received the lion's share of the strike in their 223-run first-wicket stand, the biggest partnership in T20 worldwide history. Spinner Ashton Agar (0-16) and the inexperienced Jack Wildermuth (016) were taken out of the attack after conceding 32 runs in two overs as Zaman completed his half century off 30 balls with a straight six off Agar's left-arm spin.

Australia threatened to storm to victory, but Zaman quickly set about re-building the innings.

And Pakistan's momentum proved too much for Australia to resist, Arthur's team improving on their previous highest successful run chase, when they reached a target of 176 against Bangladesh in Pallekele in September 2012.

Aaron Finch's impressive showing in the Twenty20 global triangular series in Zimbabwe helped him jump four places to No. 1 in the latest ICC T20I rankings, it was announced on Monday (July 9).

Australia's D'Arcy Short is at 10th place.

Finch was given a first-ball reprieve when he was dropped by Malik in the deep after top-edging a hook, and several misfields allowed any pressure with the new ball to be immediately dissipated. Their defeat means Australia have won just three of the last 11 internationals they have played on their tours of England and Zimbabwe. Although consistent success continues to elude them, coach Justin Langer suggested that his charges would be all the better for the experience.

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. "We'll look at that". Australia has made one change in the playing XI.

Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis could only make five and 12 before falling to Khan and Mohammad Amir (3-33) respectively.
