Fakhar Zaman Reveals The Name Of The Person Who Asked Him To Score A Double Hundred

The opening batsman had a memorable day in the fourth ODI against Zimbabwe, scoring his first ODI double ton.

Fakhar Zaman became the first Pakistan batsman to reach this milestone, joining the elite list.

Apart from him, five other players have scored double hundreds in their respective careers, with Rohit leading the race after notching up his third in 2018.

Meanwhile, Fakhar blasted an unbeaten 210 off just 156 deliveries with 24 fours and 5 sixes.

He was severe against all bowlers, taking them for a ride during his stroke full innings.

The left hand batsman stitched a 300-run stand with Imam ul Haq – the highest ever opening wicket partnership. After the game, he thanked Imam, his opening partner for his help and assistance.

“I think today was my day. Imam played really well in the start and he supported me well,” Fakhar Zaman quoted after the game.

He revealed that head coach Mickey Arthur had asked him to score a double hundred before the fourth ODI. Infact, he had said the same thing before the previous game as well.

“I knew about Saeed’s record. Mickey [Arthur] told us before toss that if we win toss we are going to bat and he asked me to score a double ton. He was telling me the same thing two days before as well,” the southpaw revealed. “I’ll try not to give them (middle-order batsmen) the chance in the next game,” he cheekily added further.
