The Victorian is on 799 points on the batting rankings, two points behind New Zealand's Colin Munro (801), who also impressed in the tri-series (176 runs at 35.20, strike rate of 209.52). Munro is the format's leading run-scorer over the past 12 months (572 at 52.00), ahead of compatriot Martin Guptill (465 at 33.21). Maxwell sits 14th (250 at 83.33).
