Pakistan's opening batsman, Fakhar Zaman on Sunday became the quickest batsman to score the quickest 1000 runs in one-day global (ODI) history.

Opener Fakhar Zaman became Pakistan's first double centurion in one-day worldwide cricket, achieving the accolade during ODI. He has now become the fastest batsman to reach 1,000 runs in ODI beating the previous record in 3 fewer innings.

Earlier, five players shared this record which included the likes of Viv Richards, Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott, Quinton de Kock and Babar Azam.

With his 85 runs in this match, Zaman amassed 455 runs between two dismissals, surpassing the previous record held by former Pakistan great Mohammad Yousuf, who had scored 405 runs between two dismissals in 2002.

When Zaman headed into the final match, he had played 17 innings in 2018 and had scored 980 runs.

On Friday, Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq's opening partnership of 304 helped Pakistan secure a record-breaking 244 runs victory, making it Pakistan's second-biggest ODI win behind the 255-run win over Ireland in 2015.

The left-hander only made his ODI debut during the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy in England last June, hitting 114 in his fourth innings as Pakistan beat India by 180 runs in the final at The Oval.

Having struck an incredible 430 runs in the first four matches of the Zimbabwe series, Zaman needed only a further 20 runs to set the new ODI batting record. The visitors already have the series in the bag with a 4-0 lead in the five ODIs.
