Unstoppable Fakhar Zaman Sets New ODI Record, Surpasses Viv Richards

Zaman reached the milestone in 18 innings, breaking the previous best achieved by five batsmen.

.

Fakhar Zaman took 18 innings to beat the likes of Viv Richards (West Indies), Kevin Pietersen (England), Jonathan Trott (England), Quinton de Kock (South Africa) and compatriot Babar Azam, who all took 21 innings, to reach the top spot in the list. Indian cricket team skipper Indian Captain Virat Kohli took 24 innings. The opener scored 114 off 106 balls in the final of last year's ICC Champions Trophy as Pakistan defeated India to clinch the title.

The left-handed batsman has been in great form throughout the series as this record comes on the back of his brilliant double-century in the previous match - when he became the first Pakistan batsman to score a double-ton in ODI cricket.


Meanwhile, Fakhar Zaman also broke the record for most runs in a five-game bilateral series.

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 worldwide here on Sunday (today). They went on to win the fourth ODI by 244 runs thanks to a record opening partnership of 304 runs by Fakhar Zaman and Imamul Haq.
