Fakhar Zaman breaks yet another record


Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman has just become the fastest man to reach 1000 runs in one-day internationals, shaving the earlier mark by a whopping three innings. He started the fifth and final ODI with 980 runs in 17 innings against his name and got to the mark when he cut Tendai Chatara for four to get from 17 to 21 on Sunday, 22 July.
That beat the record of 21 innings, held jointly by five batsmen – Zaman’s countrymate Babar Azam the last one to join the club – by three innings, with Zaman getting there in 18 innings.
