About MATCH Big Picture :

After sleepwalking to a series win, Pakistan blew life into a leaden series courtesy Fakhar Zaman’s record-breaking double-century. This generated tremendous interest momentarily on Friday afternoon in Pakistan. There’s little to suggest the joyride won’t continue on Sunday, but only a performance of Fakhar’s kind again can bring about the same level of interest.

Zimbabwe have shown no fight whatsoever. If 67 all out wasn’t the nadir, they were blown away in the fourth ODI by 244 runs – Pakistan’s second-biggest ODI win in terms of runs. The batsmen have shown little resolve, and the bowlers have lacked consistency or potency. About the fielding? Less said, the better. Whatever can go wrong, has.

Best Players :

Donald Tiripano (Zimbabwe): Tiripano’s 71-ball 44 on Friday was one of the few highlights of the Zimbabwe innings. The right-arm pacer’s contribution with the bat showed that he is capable of making an impact in both departments, and the home side could use more of his skills in all areas.

Fakhar Zaman (Pakistan): The Pakistan opener is in the form of his life. So far this series, he has registered scores of 60, 117*, 43* and 210*, and averages an eye-watering 430. He will look to finish the series on a high, and Zimbabwe will be desperate to see him off early.


Fakhar Zaman is 20 runs away from becoming fastest to reach 1000 runs in ODIs. If he does so tomorrow, he will have reached there in 18 innings. The fastest at present are five players who got there in 21 innings: Viv Richards, Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott, Quinton de Kock and Babar Azam .
