In the ICC T20 rankings, Pakistani opener Mohammad Rizwan and England middle order batsman Liam Livingstone have made enough gains to be the highest run-getter for their teams in a three-match series in which England won 2-1. Wicketkeeper batsman Rizwan reached the seventh rank of his career. In the last match of the series, he added 176 runs with an unbeaten 76, giving him a four-point advantage.
He was ranked in the top 10 for the first time since being selected as the player of the series against Zimbabwe in April this year. Livingstone jumped 144 places to 27th place. He has only played eight T20 internationals since his debut against South Africa four years ago. The 27-year-old scored 147 runs against Pakistan in his debut international century (103 off 43 balls).
