Pakistan stroll to easy win over Zimbabwe in fourth ODI

21 July 2018

In the process, he also became the first Pakistan batsman to score a double-century in ODIs.

BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe: A number of records fell to Pakistan as they thrashed Zimbabwe by a huge margin of 244 runs in the fourth One-day global on Friday. Zimbabwe's 244-run defeat was their second heaviest in the ODI format, and they avoided that calamity only through a 69-run sixth wicket stand between Elton Waggumbura and Donald Timpano.

Pakistan's total of 399 is their highest team score in ODIs, going past the 385 runs they scored against Bangladesh in June 2010.

These two surpassed the previous first-wicket stand of 286 runs, which belonged to Sri Lanka's Upul Tharanga and Sanath Jayasuriya.

However, when it comes to scoring double centuries in ODI cricket, nobody even comes close to India's explosive batsman Rohit Sharma.

Fakhar Zaman made opening partnership of 304 runs with Imam-ul-Haq.

Fakhar and Imam became only the fourth pair across teams to add 300 runs for any wicket in ODIs.

Imam ably assisted his partner Zamam by scoring his second century of the series.

When the opening partnership was eventually broken, Sif Ali arrived at the crease and immediately went on the attack, smashing 50 from 22 deliveries to help boost Pakistan to another record, i.e. their highest ever total in Odis.

Imam blazed away to 113 off 122 balls, studded with eight fours, before falling to spinner Wellington Masakadza.

This is for the seventh time that both openers scored a hundred in an innings for Pakistan. He scored 210 not out and beat the Saeed Anwar's record of 194 against India. Fakhar now has 980 runs from just 17 innings in ODIs and averages 75.38.
