Fakhar Zaman is the fastest to 1000 runs in ODIs

Pakistan opening batsman Fakhar Zaman on Sunday became the fastest to score 1000 runs in one day international cricket in just 18 innings leaving behind the likes of Viv Richards and Kevin Peitersen.

Fakhar Zaman accomplished the feat during the fifth and final ODI against Zimbabwe.

Legendary West Indian batsman Viv Richards had first set the record of 21 innings way back in 1980, which was since equalled by the likes of Pietersen and De Kock, and more recently Babar Azam.

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.

Meanwhile, Fakhar Zaman also broke the record for most runs in a five-game bilateral series.
