Pakistan beats Australia in T20 tri-series final by 6 wkts

Aaron Finch, Fakhar Zaman and KL Rahul are the new top three batsmen in the ICC T20I rankings on conclusion of the tri-series in Zimbabwe, where Pakistan beat Australia comfortably in the final, and after India's 2-1 series win over England, a release declared on Monday (July 9). Fakhar seemed a straight forward choice as both Player of the Match and of the Series too. "He performs in big games, consistently". In New Zealand, he scored a fifty and then a 40 odd.

Zaman shared in a century stand with Shoaib Malik as Pakistan recovered from an early wobble in its pursuit of Australia's 183 for eight, and Shoaib then showed all the experience of an 18-year global career to see his team home with an unbeaten 43.

Pakistan's Shadab Khan has pulled off a spectacular one-handed catch to dismiss Australian batsman Alex Carey in the T20 tri-series.

The pair punished the bowling of Ashton Agar and Jack Wildermuth with 16 runs each in consecutive overs midway through the innings to set Pakistan on their way to victory. When Zaman fell cutting out to deep cover, Pakistan still needed 30 from 24, but while Malik remained at the crease their chase was always safe. A momentous day for Pakistan cricket, worthy to be etched along with its past glory. "When they're on, they're incredibly good. We let them back into the game with bat and ball today". For Sarfraz Ahmed's team, it is a matter of proving their supremacy in the format being the No.1 ranked side, for Aaron Finch's men a win here can reinstate the revival of their cricket after suffered a huge blow on their tour to England.

The biggest positive emerging out of the last match against Australia was Shaheen Shah Afridi, who, playing only his second T20I and the first game of the series, picked up 3/37 including the wickets of Finch and Maxwell to be a deciding factor in the match.

Adult film star Stormy Daniels arrested at OH strip club, lawyer says
Police documents show that Stormy touched Prather's butt and breasts and then put her own breasts in Prather's face. Prosecutors say the "touching" statute only applies to strippers who "regularly appear" at the establishment.

On the other hand, Pakistan showed their dominant side against Zimbabwe as they defeated the hosts by 6 wickets to clinch a spot in the tri-series final.

While the end result was a disappointing one, with Australia slumping to a disappointing six-wicket loss in Harare, Australia coach Justin Langer found a silver lining. We'll look at all our staff. "So the balance isn't quite right at the moment, but hopefully moving forward we'll get that balance back as we usually have in an Australian cricket team".

Among the bowlers, legspinners Rashid Khan and Shadab Khan retained the top two positions but there were movements down the table.

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