455 runs between dismissals: Pakistan's Fakhar Zaman sets new ODI world record Sunday July 22,2018

Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman is on a record-breaking spree these days as the left-hander proved on Sunday during the fifth and final ODI against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo on Sunday July 22,2018

The left-handed Fakhar was dismissed for 85 after Pakistan elected to bat first and in the process created a new world record for the most runs scored between two dismissals in the one-day format.

Fakhar Zaman, who was out on 60 in the first match of the series, went unbeaten in the last three one-day internationals after scoring 117 not out, 43 not out and 210 not out.

With his 85 runs in this match, Zaman amassed 455 runs between two dismissals, surpassing the previous record held by former Pakistan great Mohammad Yousuf, who had scored 405 runs between two dismissals in 2002.

Interestingly, Yousuf had achieved the feat against the same opposition 16 years ago. He scored 141*, 76*, 100* and was run out on 88 against Zimbabwe in the fifth and final match while he did not get a chance to bat in the fourth ODI.
