Fakhar Zaman breaks into top 20 for first time

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman has vaulted into the top-20 for the first time in his career in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings.

The rankings were released on Sunday following the conclusion of the West Indies-Bangladesh series and also incorporate player performances from the Zimbabwe-Pakistan series.

Fakhar scored 515 runs in the series and has gained a total of 22 places to move into 16th position. When the player rankings were last updated on 17 July following the England versus India series, and the three ODIs between Zimbabwe and Pakistan, Fakhar was 24th but his knocks of 210 not out in the fourth ODI and 85 in the final ODI helped him to gain eight more places.

Fakhar is now the second Pakistan batsman to feature in the top-20 after Babar Zaman reclaimed the second spot after finishing the series with 184 runs.
