Pakistan complete series whitewash over Zimbabwe

Zaman continues to impress in ODIs

The 28-year-old southpaw reached the 1,000-run landmark in just 18 innings.

BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe: Pakistan completed a series whitewash over Zimbabwe with a 131-run win on Sunday in the fifth and final match at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. Viv Richards (West Indies), Kevin Pietersen (England), Jonathan Trott (England), Quinton de Kock (South Africa) and Babar Azam were the joint holders of this record.

In the last match, he also became the quickest batsman to get to 1000 ODI runs.

It's getting serious: Trump threatens Iran in ALL CAPS
Tehran denounced Pompeo's speech as an interference in Tehran's affairs, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported. But he did not rule out peace between the two countries, which have been at odds since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

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. Pakistan ended their innings at 364/4 in 50 overs. Fakhar averaged an astounding 257.50 in the series, and he easily shattered the previous record held by Salman Butt who scored 451 runs in a five-match rubber against Bangladesh back in 2007-08. The boundaries did dry up for a few overs post the dismissal but Imam at the other end was in his elements again to bring up his third hundred of the series - a feat that only got overshadowed by Zaman's heroics. Imam, a nephew of batting legend Inzamam, scored his 4th ODI century in 9 innings.

While Fakhar's batting exploits have been the talk of the series and rightly so, it is easy to forget that his opening partner has had a stellar time as well. With 515 runs in this series, he is second to Virat Kohli in the list of scoring most runs in a bilateral series. He is now the first batsman to make four ODI centuries inside his first ten matches.

The triple-century opening partnership was the first in ODI's and Zaman-Imam together overtook the 286-runs Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya and Upul Tharanga had scored against England in 2006. Skipper Hamilton Masakadza and Tinashe Kamunhukamwe put on a 66-run stand for the first wicket before Ryan Murray and Prince Masvaure added another 78 runs for the third wicket.
