This week’s Cricket World Player of the Week is Fakhar Zaman.
Fakhar Zaman’s run spree continued in Zimbabwe. He reached 1000 ODI runs in a just 18 innings and overtook the 21-innings mark shared by five batsmen - Vivian Richards, Kevin Pieterson, Jonathan Trott, Quinton de Kock and his team mate Babar Azam.
A remarkable achievement by a remarkable batsman – other records broken in this series by Fakhar Zaman - 704 runs scored by an opening partnership, in an ODI series, his aggregate of 515 runs is a new record in a bilateral ODI series consisting of 5 matches, 455 runs by a batsman between dismissed in an ODI. There is an old saying that records are meant to be broken but these three particular batting records are sure to last some time.
Well batted Fakhar Zaman this week’s Cricket World Player of the Week.
