Fakhar eyes another record as Pakistan play Zimbabwe in fifth ODI

Zimbabwe faces Pakistan in the 5th One-Day International (ODI) on July 22 at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo, the match starts at 12:45 (IST).

Fakhar Zaman, the Pakistani opening batsman, is now in jaw-dropping form and has been a tormenting factor for bowling attacks.

Fakhar Zaman became the fastest batsman to score 1,000 runs in ODI cricket in just his 18 innings, breaking the record of 21 innings first set by the legendary Sir Viv Richards in 1980 and since equaled by Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott, Quinton de Kock and, most recently, Babar Azam. Prior to this encounter, Zaman had scored 980 runs from 17 matches at a very big average of 75.38. In the 18th innings that he played, he crossed the 1,000-run mark in style.

The swashbuckling 28-year-old batsman made his ODI debut just over a year ago and imposed his authority immediately in the game with 252 runs in just 4 innings, which included a superb century against India.

Fakhar Zaman, who was dismissed for 85, has scored 505 runs in the ongoing series - the highest by any cricketer in a five-match bilateral ODI series. India's Rohit Sharma (thrice), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, West Indies' Chris Gayle, and New Zealand's Martin Guptill are the other men to achieve this feat. The Pakistani pair's opening stand of 304 runs took them past Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya and Upul Tharanga who held the record up until then. In the fourth ODI, he broke the world record for the highest opening wicket stand in ODIs with Imam-ul-Haq.

Fakhar Zaman scored a brilliant 210 not out off 156 balls, an innings studded with 24 boundaries and 5 sixes. He has scored 3 tons, including a double century, and 6 half-centuries.
