Pakistan recently completed their series whitewash over Zimbabwe with a 131-run win on Sunday in the fifth and final match at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. The series between the two sides was more of a one sided affair as Pakistan batsmen thoroughly dominated the opposition and smashed quite a few records which include:
1000 – Fakhar Zaman became the fastest to 1000 runs in ODI history, reaching the milestone in only 18 innings - three less than the previous world record.
210 – Fakhar Zaman’s 210 not out in the fourth match was Pakistan’s first-double century in ODIs and eighth overall.
17 – Of 6 batsmen who have scored a double-century, Fakhar doing it in his 17th innings is the least experienced player. The previous record was by Rohit Sharma and Martin Guptill who did it in their 103rd innings.
304 – 304-run partnership between Fakhar and Imam-ul-Haq was the first ever 300 plus opening stand in ODI history. It was also Pakistan’s highest partnership for any wicket.
4 – Imam-ul-Haq scored 4th century of his ODI career in this series. He is the first batsman in ODI history to score 4 centuries in career’s first 10 matches.
515 – Fakhar finished with 515 runs in the series, the most by any batsman in a five-match ODI series.
455 – Fakhar scored 455 runs between two dismissals, the highest by any batsman in ODI history. The previous record was 405 runs by Mohammad Yousuf in 2002.
350 – Pakistan scored 350 plus in back to back innings for the first time in their ODI history. They scored 364 in the last ODI and 399 in the fourth ODI.
399 – Pakistan's highest-ever total in ODIs, beating their previous record of 385 in 2010.
5 – Fakhar (2) and Imam (3) combined scored five centuries in the series making it the first instance of Pakistan openers accumulating 5 hundreds in a bilateral ODI series.
28 – Fakhar hit 28 boundaries (23 fours and 5 sixes) in his innings of 210 not out. No Pakistan batsman has hit more boundaries in an innings. The previous record was by Saeed Anwar who hit 27 boundaries against India in Chennai in 1997.
