    Fakhar Zaman becomes the fastest to 1000 ODI runs (18 inns) breaking previous record of 21 inns

    Currently has 727 runs in 15 matches. Guys with fastest to 1000 ODI runs have done it 21 matches.

    I know it doesn't mean much, but it shows how well he's started off his ODI career and hope he can carry on in this same fashion.

    Good luck to him! This is certainly an achievable goal, though as you stated, it is if absolutely no consequence.

    Pitches today are a lot more batsmen friendly, bowling attacks have become docile thanks to two new balls per innings, field restrictions allow for more shot making and of course the quality of opposition played by Pakistan off late had deteriorated.

    He has 3 more matches against Zimbabwe. If Pakistan bats first, this is very much achievable.

    Your second sentence is irrelevant, if it was relevant than next to Fakhar there would have been 5 other youngsters.

    Fakhar is about to do it and only Fakhar, stop it!

    Dont see what big fascination is to get to 1000 runs in lowest number of inns, id rather fakhar just score runs against bigger team, in big matches like he has and have a long and good ODI career rather then these mini milestone records.

    I hope he doesn't get it.

    342 of his runs 892 runs (38%) so far have come against this woeful Zimbabwe side which is missing their first choice players. He's essentially made more than 1/3rd of his ODI runs against a team which would struggle against 2nd division county teams.

    I can only imagine the reaction here if an Indian was in this position.

    Look at the list above... he's done well against other teams, but the reason he's in the place is this series against Zimbabwe where he has scored 350 runs in 4 games.

    Which everyone will have the chance to do. It's not like him being fastest to 1000 is anything more than a trivia fact. It has no value. Hope he does it.

    Unfair. He has been tremendous against pretty much every team he has played so far. Pakistan's best batsman in that demolition in New Zealand. India'a worst nightmare in that match-defining knock in that CT final. If anyone from this Pakistan team deserves it, its Fakhar Zaman. Absolute champ

    As a big Fakhar Zaman fan, I actually agree because it amplifies his statistics against lower tier opposition.

    He's a quality bat who doesn't need such cheap runs against this joke of a cricket team.

    True, but it's hollow and you know it. I'd rather have someone do exceptionally well against quality teams and get it. Fakhar has a good start but he's getting this record because of this series against a weakened minnow team.

    It's weak and we all know it. No fault of Fakhar but still leaves a bad taste.

    You don't understand the drop off between the starters and the rest from countries like Zimbabwe, NZ etc. who have a smaller population to choose from and don't have the same enthusiasm for the game like India, Pakistan, Australia etc.

    Fakhar is about to break Viv Richards record which has stood since 1975.

    400+ runs of those runs will have come against this Zimbabwe team in 5 games.

    Does that sound fine with you?

    He's a very talented player, but he's about to break Viv Richards' record which has stood since 1975 after scoring 400 runs against this Zimbabwe team in 5 games. As a cricket fan you got to be disappointed.

    Zimbabwe are minnows as is but to do it against a weakened team just isn't right.

    Mr Zaman has crunch runs against top opposition so far, so regardless of batting against Zimb, we know he can score elsewhere too. Can't wait to see him develop in the coming months leading to the world cup.

    He scored a hundred recently in a T20 final vs Australia and has a hundred in CT final vs India.

    He has, but the chances of him breaking that record without this series weren't great.

    Does that excuse the fact he scored 400 of his 1,000 runs in 4 games against this Zimbabwe team? I'm talking about the record, not his performances outside this series because he has been fantastic. It's this series and the way in which the record has come that has left a sour taste.

    Heck, Imam could break his record at this pace...

    He's a very talented player, but he's about to break Viv Richards' record which has stood since 1975 after scoring 400 runs against this Zimbabwe team in 5 games. As a cricket fan you got to be disappointed.

    Zimbabwe are minnows as is but to do it against a weakened team just isn't right.
    But what can he do about it if Zimbabwe have such an incompetent board ?

    India have refused to play Pakistan for the last decade so who’s fault is that he can’t test himself against stronger opposition like them ?

    I can tell you nearly all fans would rather have a much stronger team playing now (esp with World Cup next year) but with so much 20/20 nonsense the reality is International cricket has become less important for those in power.

    These records have become useless mostly. Hashim Amla keeps on breaking Viv Richard record of "fastest to X runs" everytime. He is a good ODI player but nothing exceptional.

    Hence, they hardly meant much. In tests, recently Ashwin broke a similar record of fastest to X wickets. So, they just keep coming.

    He did well to score 600+ runs in 13 games as well , cant ignore that . Also , has had a huge impact on Pakistan's results . I would shrug off Babars stats , meaningless runs against weak sides , but Fakhar is exact opposite . So deserves the record imo

    It’s all hypotheses - fact was he was in great form.

    His match winning 90 in the 20/20 final against Australia proved that.

    I will say though the pitches have been flat and good for batting - that has not always been the case in Zimbabwe.

    Zimbabwe are minnows as is but to do it against a weakened team just isn't right.
    Before this series was scheduled, neither the PCB nor Fakhar Zaman knew Zimbabwe was going to field a weakened side due to financial worries.

    At this point what is Fakhar supposed to do?

    Not play his best?

    Should he protect the cricketing legacy of Sir Viv by deliberately under performing?

    Not sure what you are complaining about or asking of him.

    Given the number of matches Pakistan play against minnows (that too their C side), a lot of Cricketing records will be re-written. Shame, but that's how it is. Credit to Zaman for making most of the opportunity.

    On the bright side Fakhar has performed against top teams and scored clutch runs in the CT Final. Babar's record is stat padding at its finest. Not thrilled about the way the record was broken, but at least he has strong performances outside this series.

    True that. All of his hundreds have been against minnow level bowling attacks. Australia, New Zealand and South Africa later this year will prove his credentials as a player

    I like Fakhar, no wonder he is the one getting this record for Pakistan. My point is that a 5 match ODI series even against a full strength Zimbabwe is ridiculous, forget the current weakened side. As a Cricket fans, it pains me to see hard earned records broken like that.

    Thanks for misinterpreting my post. I would have said the same if Rohit bashed Zimbabwe C for 600 runs in a 5 match series. This is not how Cricket fans want to see records being broken.

    What's the point of this incessant whining? Pakistan fans are not happy about the five ODIs against this Zimbabwe team, evident by two threads for this specific topic. But once something of note happens in this series, all hell breaks loose

    ATM, he probably is.

    Guptill is inconsistent and Fakhar has been on fire and has the CT Final innings.

    I can only imagine the reaction here if an Indian was in this position.
    Thats true but to his credut he scored a match winning 100 against india in champioms trophy final, to me that was a bigger achievement. I had almost forgotten who was fastest to 1000 in odis , not that important in my opinion.


    It is either a heartache or a headache ..Argh relationships.

    Pakistan should thump Zimbabwe like they are doing right now, well done. But the likes of Rashid Khan, Fakhar or Babar breaking some all time records is just ridiculous. ICC needs to do something about limiting the frequency of certain sides playing minnows.

    Babar has done it against Sri Lanka and West Indies, the same opposition Rohit Sharma has bullied for two celebrated double hundreds in his career

    And people rightfully bring up his bashing of weak attacks and flat track bullying. Dude is a meme for FTBing.

    Just saying, nothing related to Fakhar just on Rohit bullying weak attacks/scoring runs on flat wickets.
