Pakistani opening batsman Fakhar Zaman has become the quickest batsman to score the fastest1000 runs in one-day worldwide (ODI) history.

Pakistan will be playing to complete a series whitewash as they take on Zimbabwe in the fifth one-day global at Bulawayo on Sunday.

Fakhar Zaman beat the likes of Viv Richards (West Indies), Kevin Pietersen (England), Jonathan Trott (England), Quinton de Kock (South Africa) and compatriot Babar Azam to clinch the top spot in the list.

There were a multitude of records broken by the Fakhar Zaman and Pakistan during his 210-run innings in the fourth ODI and that trend continued on Sunday.

Fakhar also went past the 1,000-run mark in ODIs during the course of his innings and has become the fastest man to the milestone in doing so.

After surrendering meekly with the bat in the four previous ODIs, all Zimbabwe wanted was to bat out 50 overs to give a good account of themselves.

The superlative double hundred by Fakhar Zaman was followed by an 85 runs knock while Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam both blasted two centuries consecutively.

Zaman amassed 515 runs in the five matches at a staggering average of 257.50 which makes him the only Pakistani batsman to score over 500 runs in an ODI series.

His opening partner Imam-ul-Haq was also in the runs once again, with the pair producing their fourth century stand of the series.

Imam-ul-Haq brings up his third of the series! They had added 800 runs batting together from nine innings in the 2011 World Cup. But Fakhar thwarted the record in 3 fewer innings. Imam, the nephew of batting legend Inzamam, scored his 4th ODI century in 9 innings. While T20s, he has smashed 646 runs in 22 matches with 4 half centuries.

This win was Pakistan's second-biggest ODI win behind the 255-run win over Ireland in 2015.

When will the 5th ODI between Pakistan and Zimbabwe start? Skipper Hamilton Masakadza and Tinashe Kamunhukamwe put on a 66-run stand for the first wicket before Ryan Murray and Prince Masvaure added another 78 runs for the third wicket.
