Fakhar Zaman Breaks Record- Scores Double Century

July 20

Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman became the sixth international batsman and the first Pakistani player to score a double hundred, when he smashed 210 off just 156 deliveries against Zimbabwe in the fourth ODI at Bulawayo.

Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman put on a 304-run opening stand on a flat wicket, which is also a record for highest opening partnership in ODIs. Zaman completed his ton off 92 balls and then stepped on the accelerator, reaching the 150 mark off just 115 deliveries. He smashed 24 boundaries and five sixes in the innings.

The opener also broke Saeed Anwar’s record of highest score by a Pakistani player in ODIs. Anwar had scored 194 against India in 1997.
