The 32-year-old former captain, had a good time out in Kuala Lumpur with her off-spin, returning 3/26, 1/37 and 3/53 to end at the top of the ICC Women’s ODI Player Rankings for bowlers with a career-high 663 points.
The off-spinner swapped places with Australia's Jess Jonassen, who slipped to No. 4. Mir also overtook South Africa's Marizanne Kapp and Australia pacer Megan Schutt, who is placed second with 660 points.
"This is a team effort of support staff and players who have helped me excel," Mir said on Twitter. "I would also like to thank ICC for providing us regular opportunities to play with the big teams through ICC women Championship and to coach Mark Coles, who chose to look at my skill rather than my age."
Ashleigh Gardner, the Australia off-spinner, moved up to a career-best No.17 (up nine spots) among bowlers after an all-round performance against Pakistan, and also to No.50 with a jump of eight spots in the list for batters.
Meg Lanning, the Australia captain retained her No.2 spot in the batters’ table, with 675 points, only six behind compatriot Ellyse Perry at the top.
