However, in his first full tour as skipper, Paine had a shocker with the bat against England, averaging just 7.20 from five knocks with a top score of 15.

With three wins from 11 games across two formats, Langer's first few weeks in the top job have been as tough as it gets, thanks to a mass exodus of key players through suspension and injury.

The latest rankings, which also take into account India's 2-0 and 2-1 series win against Ireland and England, respectively, Finch leads Pakistan's left-handed opener Fakhar Zaman by 45 points.

Pakistan emerged champions on Sunday, beating Australia by 6 wickets in the T20I tri-series final held at Harare sports club.

At the conclusion of the tri-series in Zimbabwe also involving Pakistan and Australia and later India vs England, the rankings were updated by the ICC.

No wonder he moved up 44 spots on the table to reach No 2 with 842 points, also the best in his short worldwide career so far.

In-form India batsman Lokesh Rahul has jumped nine places to reach a career-high third spot in the latest ICC T20 rankings while his team has gained a place to be second in the team standings following the series win against England.

Short has broken into the top 10 for the first time in his career in 10th position, moving up 18 places.

There wasn't notable movement in the bowlers' table, with Rashid Khan retaining his spot at No. 1 with 813 points, well ahead of second-placed Shadab Khan (723 points).

It looked as though Australia had produced a masterstroke in opening the bowling with Glenn Maxwell's offspin as debutant Sahibzada Farhan was stumped off the first ball he faced and Hussain Talat sliced a catch to point three balls later to derail Pakistan's chase. England, who now occupy the fourth spot are only three points ahead of West Indies, who are in seventh.

Team rankings remain crucial as Australia plus the next nine highest-ranked sides will qualify directly for the 16-team World T20 2020 in Australia. "We've shown our inexperience over the last six weeks, but we'll be much better for it", said Langer, who also hinted that Finch could also assume the captaincy role in Australia's one-day side.
