Looks like Kyle Abbott is going to avoid the indignity of scoring 0 for the year.

He will be turning out for Jaffna in Sri Lanka's first intenational T20 competition.

Only a brief update this week:

Movers

Lewis Gregory - 122 - The Somerset man was long overdue an impressive England performance. He was the second highest points scorer on The List that played in yesterday's intra-squad game. He moves back up to fourth and overtakes Jason Holder.

Martin Guptill - 54 - The Auckland player has had a modest start to the Plunket Shield but he is moving back up The List again. He has overtaken Mohammad Nabi into 16th.

Weekly Top Five

1. Babar Azam - 238 - The Pakistan captain's T20 form sees him top the Weekly List once more. He has finished in top spot 5 times - the joint most with Ben Stokes.

2. Joe Root - 147 - The England Test captain has been out in the cold for a while - inexplicably becoming the Cricketer to have not played for the longest time this week - but returned with 77 and a wicket in the England Intra Squad game.

3. Lewis Gregory - 122 - Needed a good game to impress England selectors before the South Africa series. Three wickets represents his best reward in the shortest form for some while.

4. Ben Stokes - 70 - Seems an age since we last saw Stokes in England colours and 70 points overall is a modest total for his return. It is enough for fourth spot.

5. Martin Guptill - 54 - Another modest score for the Auckland man but enough to see him finish fifth for the week in what has been a low scoring week.

Yearly Top Five

1. Babar Azam - 3082 - Extends his lead at the top of the table to 283 points. This is his second consecutive week in first place after managing just one week five weeks ago.

2. Ben Stokes - 2799 - Back in action after a week's rest that saw him drop into second. He has not managed to regain top spot but has the South Africa series to try and push for the top of The List.

3. Joe Root - 2427 - back in action this week after seven weeks away. When he last played he was in top spot and has subsequently slipped to third. How high can he get before the end of the year?

4. Lewis Gregory - 2248 - Moves up a spot this week thanks to three wickets in the England intra squad game. His average active week score of 132.24 - a testament to the fact that he has played lots of slightly above average cricket this year.

5. Jason Holder - 2147 - Just the one week in fourth spot for Holder as he drops back down to fifth spot. He only has a 79 point lead on David Warner but will be back in action for the West Indies this week.

The Doc never stops moving ahead, even with Gentle Ben idle for so much of the year.

Babar Azam was an inspired pick.

Movers

Virat Kohli - 41 - Despite a score that sees him outside the top 5 for points this week, Kohli still manages to jump two places. He moves up to 13th at the expense of Travis Head and Shubman Gill.

David Warner - 99 - Despite being the least pyrotechnic of the Aussie batsmen in their first ODI against India, Warner benefits the most. He moves into the Top 5 for the first time since January. Jason Holder drops out of the Top 5.

Aaron Finch - 164 - Finch averaged 35.67 per IPL game but looked a changed man in the first ODI against India. He moves up a place into 7th with Harmer moving down one.

Glenn Maxwell - 95 - The Big Show was back in town as Maxwell put his poor IPL form behind him to move into 11th place - overtaking Keshav Maharaj.

Weekly Top Five

1. Steve Smith - 175 - Smith enjoys the opening game of a tournament. After scoring 109 points in his first IPL game, he started to fade away. His Cricketer of the Week winning knock in the first ODI v India is most impressive but can he sustain this level of performance?

2. Aaron Finch - 164 - The Australia captain has an uncanny knack of pulling out a big performance when it is most needed of him. After an underwhelming IPL, he was back to his best here. One of only two players to increase their weekly average this week.

3. David Warner - 99 - Big things were expected of Warner after a successful IPL campaign. 99 is a decent score but looks under baked compared to other performances.

4. Glenn Maxwell - 95 - According to many Maxwell's position was at threat in this ODI series. I doubt if that is the case anymore. His middle order explosiveness pushed the game to unmanageable proportions for India.

5. Joe Root - 85 - It is perhaps ironic that the fifth highest score for the week came from a player who we all knew would not feature in the T20 series between England and South Africa. A score of 45 at a decent lick sees Root into fifth spot.

Yearly Top Five

1. Babar Azam - 3082 - Remains in top spot despite having not played this week. His lead on Stokes is now 203.

2. Ben Stokes - 2879 - A meagre 80 points from Stokes this week as he played second fiddle to Jonny Bairstow. He still eats into the deficit from top spot.

3. Joe Root - 2512 - Just the 85 points from a warm up game for Root. As the year draws in it is starting to look like third might be Root's eventual final score.

4. Lewis Gregory - 2248 - Suffered the indignity of scoring a pure 0 in the final intra-squad friendly. Hits his average score per week considerably (moving down to 124.89 from 132.24) - however he retains fourth spot for the year.

5. David Warner - 2167 - Warner has only been in the Top 5 once in 2020 but has moved back in just as the year comes to an end. A good antipodean Summer could see him make even more progress.
