Fakhar Zaman overtakes Kohli, Viv Richards; fastest to 1000 ODI runs

Fakhar eyes another record as Pakistan play Zimbabwe in fifth ODI

Earlier, Pakistan who once again won the toss and chose to bat against Zimbabwe in the 5th ODI got to a ideal start as Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq scored 168 runs for the first.

The previous record was jointly held by Vivian Richards, Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott, Quinton de Kock and Babar Azam who all reached the milestone in 21 innings.

Famous for scoring big in the finals, Zaman had scored a splendid 100 in the ICC Champions Trophy final against India previous year and just days ago he became the first Pakistani batsman to hit a double century.

During the course of the ODI series in Zimbabwe, Zaman had recorded scores of 60, 117 (not out), 43 (not out) and 210 (not out) prior to the latest innings.

On a morning for batsmen, Imam-ul-Haq went on to reach his third century of the series, cracking eight fours and a six before he swung across the line and was trapped lbw by left arm spinner Wellington Masakadza for 110.

We had the chance to win the final of the Euros, but we missed a wonderful thing and we must not let this chance pass. With such results, there were many teams who performed way better than what was expected of them.

A confident Pakistan, 4-0 up in the ODI series, will fancy their chances of completing a 5-0 whitewash of Zimbabwe when they face the beleaguered hosts in the fifth and final one-day global here on Sunday (today).

This means that no batsman has made as many runs as him in a five-match series. His opening partner Imam-ul-Haq was also in the runs once again, the pair producing their fourth century stand of the series.

Sarfraz Ahmed's men crossed the 350-run mark for the second time in succession after electing to bat first as they set the hosts a mammoth target of 365.

The 28-year old also became the first Pakistan batsman to score 500-plus runs in a five-match bilateral series. He has converted all his fifty-plus scores into centuries so far! Fakhar Zaman though missed out on another hundred after getting out for 85 while trying to cut an outside off-stump delivery from Liam Roche. Azam hit nine fours and two sixes and completed his eighth ODI century.
