Pakistan beat Australia to clinch tri-nation T20I series in Zimbabwe

Finch, the new captain of the Australian T20I side, had a remarkable run during the tournament in Zimbabwe, scoring 68 not out, 172 - a world record in the format - 16, 3 and 47.

Finch also became the first batsman in T20Is to break the 900-point mark but ended with a final tally of 891 points after the tri-series against Pakistan and Zimbabwe.

To continue to win at a rate which puzzles many who have seen Pakistan cricket self-destruct in the past is an achievement in itself.

Australia coach Justin Langer has hinted that the current T20I skipper Aaron Finch is likely to be appointed as the captain of the one-day global (ODI) team as well. And it's safe to say Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman is made of the same material that made Gilchirst what he was.

A health official confirmed that he was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries that were "not serious". Clooney's spokesman, Stan Rosenfield, explained the accident to the media, relaying that, "He's doing fine".

Short put on 95 for the first wicket with Finch (47 from 27 balls) despite him struggling for momentum early in his innings.

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

Nic Maddinson, who managed scores of 5 and 2 in his first two worldwide limited-overs games in almost five years on this tour, has been dropped.

"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. 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. It's a career-best number for him, his first time in the Top 10, with 690 points, also a career high.
