On June 9, 2018, I wrote a post about Fakhar Zaman titled The next Saeed Anwar.
Saeed Anwar was a left-handed opener for Pakistan. He was a supremely elegant batsman who scored 194 -- the highest score ever by any Pakistani batsman.
Today, Zaman broke that 21-years-old record by smashing 210 not out. The eleven Zimbabwe players combined managed 155 runs in response. That shows just how competitive the match was.
A few other ODI records:
- Highest total by Pakistan: 399-1
- Highest opening partnership for any team.
- Most fours scored by a Pakistani batsman in one innings.
Soon, Fakhar Zaman will become the fastest batsman to 1,000 runs in ODIs. He has definitely cemented his position in the team for a few years.
