Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq march into the record books

In doing so, Zaman also became the first Pakistani batsman to score 500 runs in a five-match ODI series.

Earlier this week, Zaman smashed 210 not out off 156 deliveries, moving past the previous record of the highest individual score in an ODI innings for a Pakistan batsman set by Saeed Anwar with his 194 against India in Chennai more than 21 years ago, and Pakistan batting coach Grant Flower called his innings "a great achievement".

Famous for scoring big in the finals, Zaman had scored a splendid 100 in the ICC Champions Trophy final against India past year and just days ago he became the first Pakistani batsman to hit a double century.

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

Joining Zaman in his exploits has been the young Imam-ul-Haq, who made three centuries in the series.

Pakistani opening batsman Fakhar Zaman has become the quickest batsman to score the fastest1000 runs in one-day worldwide (ODI) history. The duo also became the first pair to score 600-plus in a bilateral series.

Pres. Trump corrects his quote, says misspoke on Russian meddling
The president's statements also set off a firestorm in Washington , stoking criticism from prominent members of Trump's own party. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., said Putin again denied Russian interference and Trump again refused to call him out.

The records keep tumbling for Fakhar Zaman.

When he was dismissed in the fifth and final ODI, he had scored 455 runs between two dismissals, which is yet another record. The youngster has now managed to convert all his half-centuries into tons. The visitors already have the series in the bag with a 4-0 lead in the five ODIs.

Babar Azam was also amongst the runs as he notched up the eight century of his ODI career.

Zimbabwe captain Hamilton Masakadza and Tinashe Kamunhukamwe both made 34 runs each and shared a 66-run first-wicket stand before falling in successive overs.

The triple-century opening partnership was the first in ODI's and Zaman-Imam together overtook the 286-runs Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya and Upul Tharanga had scored against England in 2006.
