Babar Azam reclaims top T20 ranking

  • Babar Azam plays a shoot during his knock of 50 on Sunday

The series result means Pakistan can not be displaced from the top spot irrespective of the outcome of their upcoming series against New Zealand as well as the one between India and the Windies.

But Australian spinners Adam Zampa (1-25) and D'Arcy Short (0-27) stemmed the flow of boundaries and, when Farhan (39) and Babar (50) both fell in the space of three balls, the innings never really recovered.

Pakistan will remain in the UAE where they will play the touring New Zealand side in three T20Is and as many ODIs and Tests beginning with the first T20 worldwide on October 31.

The tourists promoted Alex Carey to open alongside Finch, and the decision looked like a stroke of genius when Carey belted 20 off the first over including two sixes.

Ben McDermott (21) was run out for the third time in the series and Mitchell Marsh, who also scored 21, gave an easy catch at long on.

In contrast, if Pakistan and the Windies win all their matches, Pakistan will rise to 138 points and only one point will separate second-ranked India (119) from fourth-ranked Australia (118). However, this result will help New Zealand move ahead of England and Australia in third position. "We're looking forward to a tough series against South Africa (at home)". "You back yourself while chasing under 150, you back your batsmen to get the side over the line but it didn't happen".

Earlier, Azam scored his second fifty of the series after the hosts had won the toss and batted.

One constant in that run has been Babar. But after the openers, only Mohammad Hafeez managed to score freely during his 20-ball 32 not out.
