Dubai, July 21 | Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan and England middle-order batsman Liam Livingstone have made huge progress in the ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings after finishing as the leading run scorers for their teams in the three-match series won 2-1 by England.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Rizwan has attained a career-best seventh position after aggregating 176 runs in the series including an unbeaten 76 in the final match in Manchester, performances that helped him gain four places. The 29-year-old had reached the top 10 for the first time in his career after a ‘Player of the Series’ effort against Zimbabwe in April this year and has reaped benefits of his continued good effort.

Livingstone has galloped 144 places to reach 27th position after playing just eight T20Is since his debut against South Africa four years ago. The 27-year-old’s aggregate of 147 runs against Pakistan included his maiden international century, a valiant 43-ball 103 in the first match.

The latest update to the men’s rankings, carried out on Wednesdays and which this week includes performances in the last two T20I matches between the West Indies and Australia as well as the first one between Ireland and South Africa, sees West Indies opener Evin Lewis move up from 10th to eighth after scores of 31 and 79.

Among other batters to advance are Aiden Markram of South Africa (up four places to 15th), Jason Roy of England (up seven places to 17th), Mitchell Marsh of Australia (up 46 places to 37th), Harry Tector of Ireland (up 11 places to 83rd) and the West Indies pair of Lendl Simmons (up 13 places to 51st) and Nicholas Pooran (up 16 places to 63rd).

In the rankings for bowlers, Pakistan’s left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Afridi has gained four places to reach 13th position after finishing with four wickets, including a Player of the Match effort of three for 30 in the first T20I in Nottingham.

Leg-spinner Shadab Khan and fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain, both of whom finished with four wickets in the series, have also progressed in the latest update. Shadab has gained six slots to reach 36th place while Hasnain is up from 67th to 41st.

Others to gain are West Indies bowlers Sheldon Cottrell (up six places to 16th) and Hayden Walsh (up 37 places to 34th) while the England pair of David Willey (a gain of three places) and Tom Curran (a gain of 18 places) are in joint-49th position.

In the ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings, which takes into account the three-match series between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, the third Ireland versus South Africa match and the first two ODIs between Sri Lanka and India, South Africa’s Quinton de Kock is up one place to 10th position.

India captain Shikhar Dhawan’s unbeaten 86 in the first match has helped him gain two slots to reach 16th position while Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal’s century has lifted him one place to 23rd.

Others to move up the list are Australia’s Alex Carey (up one place to 27th), Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan (up three places to 28th), Sri Lanka’s Avishka Fernando (up six places to 68th) and South Africa’s Janneman Malan (up 24 places to 71st).

Shakib has also moved up in the bowlers’ list, his eight wickets including a five-wicket haul in the first match against Zimbabwe, lifting him nine places to eighth position.

India’s Yuzvendra Chahal (up four places to 20th), Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga (up 22 places to 36th), South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi (up eight places to 39th), Ireland’s Simi Singh (up six places to 51st) and Zimbabwe’s Blessing Muzarabani (up 23 places to 70th) are among the others to make headway.

PURPOSE FUELS YOUR PASSION: MUNISH MAYA

PURPOSE FUELS YOUR PASSION: MUNISH MAYA

Don’t get confused with your purpose and passion as both go well together

Passion as well as purpose both goes hand in hand. Purpose defines the passion in life. If you are passionate about something then there will be a purpose behind it. And if you feel that you are passionate about something but you are not able to find the purpose behind it then please do self-analysis. There is surely something that you are missing out on. Munish Maya in his Instagram post took out few minutes to write about Purpose and Passion, as he feels that it is an important topic to be discussed with everyone. Mr. Maya started writing his post by making a statement, “Many people confuse passion with purpose. Others struggle to find both.”

Self-analyzing is a very tough job and it’s completely natural to get confused. Solving this problem Munish Maya says, “Passion & purpose are distinct. Passion is the drive, the energy that makes us feel good. Like they say, ‘do what you love.” People follow their passion to live a stress-free life where they can enjoy whatever the work they are doing. It is well said, ‘Follow your passion and there will not be a single day when you will have to work.’ Whereas the most asked question in relevance to passion, ‘What is the purpose?’ is answered very well by Munish

Maya in his same post, “Your purpose is the reason, your ‘Why’ behind what you do.” 

Passion and purpose go hand in hand. Munish Maya says, “From over a decade, I experienced, learned, evolved & developed new passions. They have changed my life & perspective in a great way.” Passion serves the purpose of life. Munish Maya himself followed his passion when he realized that he cannot do a 9-5 profile job, and look at him now, he is the 1st Global Brand Ambassador of India. His passion leads him to define the purpose of his life. The only purpose of Munish Maya’s life is to serve people by guiding and enlightening them about their lives.

This confusion between passion and purpose is not for the lifetime. To which Munish Maya explained by saying, “But the sweet spot is where your passion & purpose align.

One fuels your internal drive while the other maximizes your outward impact.” When both purpose and passion start to align then you will start gaining success and positivity in life.

Munish Maya describes it more beautifully, “And in the path of manifestation, Purpose fuels Passion. By focusing on your purpose, you align your work with your deepest drive- your passion.” If you are passionate about something in your life, then the purpose of your life is served.
