He smashed 85 runs off just 83 balls breaking the barrier of 1,000 runs and becoming the fastest man to do so in the history of ODI cricket.
The opener has bettered Windies great Sir Vivian Richards, England's Kevin Pietersen and Jonathan Trott, compatriot Babar Azam and South Africa's Quinton de Kock, who reached 1,000 runs in 18 knocks. He got there in merely 18 innings, while the rest of the aforementioned players took 21 innings.
Fakhar Zaman accomplished the feat during the fifth and final ODI between Pakistan and hosts Zimbabwe. At one point in the series, Zaman had scored 454 runs without getting out.
He is the eighth global player, who has achieved this mark. The previous record was by Pakistan's Mohammad Yousuf, who had amassed 405 runs between two dismissals in 2002.Читайте также: Maharaj claims South Africa's best figures since readmission
Fakhar became the first Pakistani to hit a double ton in ODI cricket during Friday's fourth fixture against Zimbabwe when he racked up an unbeaten 210 from 156 deliveries in his team's total of 399-1. Apart from Fakhar Zaman, India's Rohit Sharma, New Zealand's Martin Guptill, India's Virender Sehwag, West Indies' Chris Gayle and India batting legend Sachin Tendulkar have reached the landmark score. In the fourth ODI, he broke the world record for the highest opening wicket stand in ODIs with Imam-ul-Haq.
The 28-year old also became the first Pakistan batsman to score 500-plus runs in a five-match bilateral series.
Just a couple of days back Fakhar Zaman had created another record as he became the first batsman from Pakistan to smash 200 runs in an innings in the previous game at the Queens Sports Club.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
