Morgan slapped three fours and seven sixes in a 39-ball 74, which has helped him rise six places to eighth, while Smith's 53-ball 90, which included seven fours and four sixes, has helped him rocket 62 places to 96th.

England's Moeen Ali, meanwhile, has achieved a career-high 77th spot after his 46-ball 72, which included six fours and three sixes, which has vaulted him 79 places.

In the bowling table, Pat Cummins, who took two for 25 in the match, has moved up 11 places to join Imran Tahir in 14thspot, while Glenn Maxwell has moved up three places to 29th.

The bowlers' list is headed by Samuel Badree of the West Indies.

Meanwhile, Australia has dropped one place to third after Monday's loss. This has put Pakistan in second place, six points behind ICC World Twenty20 champion Sri Lanka. England has retained its eighth position on the table.
