    Default Fakhar's 210* secures Pakistan's 244-run win

    Pakistan 399 for 1 (Fakhar 210*, Imam 113, Asif Ali 50*) beat Zimbabwe 155 (Tiripano 44, Shadab 4-28) by 244 runs

    Who knew there were so many layers to rock bottom? In every game this series, it has appeared it couldn't get any worse for Zimbabwe, or easier for Pakistan. It seemed impossible there could be a nadir beyond what transpired in the third ODI, with Pakistan bowling Zimbabwe out for 67 and chasing it down in 9.5 overs. But the chasm grows wider by the game.

    On Friday, after winning the toss and deciding to bat, Pakistan began to put statisticians around the world on notice. Pakistan plundered 399 - their highest ODI total - while Fakhar Zaman made a brutally destructive 210 not out off 156 balls as Pakistan pulverised Zimbabwe by 244 runs.

    Along with Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar smashed a slew of records against - it has to be said - a poor, second-string Zimbabwean side who had a terrible day. Even so, their powers of concentration, their hunger for runs, and refusal to be complacent hint at traits even the best batsmen in any generation struggle to master.

    Rest in peace, MickeyD. Gone to soon. Ne'er shall ye be forgotten.

    Damn, that Fakhar produced a good knock.

    Fakhar Zaman is now the fastest to 1000 odi runs - 18 games/innings, beating Viv Richards 38 year old record of 21 innings.
