"I think nowadays he's in the best form of his life", Ahmed said of Zaman, who was named player of the series for his 278 runs.

The batsman also revealed that his approach in big matches such as tournament finals are a bit different than regular games. Basically, a champion of finals. In New Zealand, he scored a fifty and then a 40 odd.

Some players thrive on the biggest stage.

All-rounder Glenn Maxwell had reduced Pakistan to 2-2 in the first over but Zaman and Shoaib Malik, who scored an unbeaten 43, shared a century stand to see Pakistan home.

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.

Fakha smashed 91 from 46 balls after Pakistan lost two wickets in the first over.

President Donald Trump said in May he would pull the United States out of an worldwide nuclear deal with Iran and reimpose USA sanctions.

This means that Zimbabwe finishes the tournament without a single win after losing two matches to Australia and another two matches to Pakistan. The greater the challenge, they better they perform.

A year ago he was no way near Pakistan cricket, now Fakhar Zaman has become an integral part of the team, single-handedly winning games for the green shirts.

Australia's D'Arcy Short is at 10th place. With the decline in the fortunes of Mohammad Hafeez, Pakistan are increasingly looking towards Malik to provide the stability under tricky conditions which saw them complete their run chase of 184 in the final, where at one point it appeared that Australia would embarrass the top-ranked team.

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. Their defeat means Australia have won just three of the last 11 internationals they have played on their tours of England and Zimbabwe.

The remaining six sides will qualify from the 14-team ICC Men's World T20 Qualifier 2019, which will be participated in by the six sides from the ICC World T20 2016, which are not in the Top 10 of the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Team Rankings as on 31 December 2018, alongside the eight qualifiers from the regional finals. Finchy has definitely put his best foot forward in this series. We'll look at all our staff.
