Australia missed an opportunity to usurp Pakistan atop the T20 rankings after their 45-run loss to Sarfraz Ahmed's side on Thursday, but have had three resounding victories from four matches and can rise above India into second on the rankings with victory in Harare's decider.

Zaman scored a man-of-the-match cameo 73 runs from 49 balls up the order.

Short put on 95 for the first wicket with Finch (47 from 27 balls) despite him struggling for momentum early in his innings. "After this tour we'll have a really, really close look at everything we're doing at the moment including our leadership, which is such an incredibly high priority in Australian cricket", Langer said.

They're making good things, and hopefully, they could continue. "By the English point of view, it depends on the way you look at it", he added.

Australia, who defeated Pakistan by nine wickets on Monday, will take on Zimbabwe in a dead rubber on Friday, having beaten the host by 100 runs earlier.

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

Finch too found some terrific touch in the African nation, taking his worldwide T20 run tally past 400 with his mammoth 172 against Zimbabwe, before coming back to earth with scores of 3 and 16 in Australia's last two games.

Bourdain leaves bulk of $1.2 million estate to 11-year-old daughter
In 2013, Peabody Award judges honoured Bourdain and " Parts Unknown " for "expanding our palates and horizons in equal measure". Court papers show globe-trotting chef , author and TV host Anthony Bourdain was worth $1.2 million when he died last month.

On the other side of the coin, Finch had a better time of it in England, and dominated the T20I tri-series - he was the leading run-scorer with 306 runs in five innings at a strike rate of 201.31, including a stunning world-record 172 against Zimbabwe. However, returns of 16 and 3 in the final two games of the series have slightly diminished the good run of form he had had at the start.

Aaron Finch has named Pakistan's biggest threat ahead of Australia's T20 final matchup with the World No 1 side. He made 165 runs at an average of 41.25 in the tri-series, including a 53-ball 76 in the final.

"I think Fakhar Zaman has been outstanding and a real thorn in our side. Credit to the bowlers and then Fakhar Zaman and (Shoaib) Malik (43 not out) finished it for us", Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed said at the post-match presentation.

Willian Warns Hazard Ahead of Brazil-Belgium Battle
Brazil are unbeaten in their last 15 matches in all competitions (W11 D4), conceding just three goals in that run. Lukaku believes the team has improved since Euro 2016, when they were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Wales.

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey (w), Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Nic Maddinson, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Jack Wildermuth, Andrew Tye, Jhye Richardson, Billy Stanlake, Mitchell Swepson, D Arcy Short, Kane Richardson.
