On another record setting day in Bulawayo for the visitors, Fakhar Zaman became the fastest player in history to reach 1,000 career runs in one-day worldwide cricket as Pakistan amassed 364 for 4.

Pakistan finished their tour of Zimbabwe on a thumping note by thrashing the hosts in the fifth and final ODI to complete a 5-0 whitewash.

Fakhar Zaman beat the likes of Viv Richards (West Indies), Kevin Pietersen (England), Jonathan Trott (England), Quinton de Kock (South Africa) and compatriot Babar Azam to clinch the top spot in the list. Indian Captain Virat Kohli had taken 24 innings to reach the milestone.

After surrendering meekly with the bat in the four previous ODIs, all Zimbabwe wanted was to bat out 50 overs to give a good account of themselves.

Zaman's unbeaten 210 off 156 balls guided Pakistan to their highest ODI total of 399-1 after Pakistan won their first toss of the series and elected to bat overnight on Friday. The boundaries did dry up for a few overs post the dismissal but Imam at the other end was in his elements again to bring up his third hundred of the series - a feat that only got overshadowed by Zaman's heroics.

Imam and Zaman continued their prolific run against a weak bowling attack by sharing the fourth century-stand of the series.

The opening duo added 704 runs as batting partners in five innings of the series, which is the most by any batting partner in a bilateral series. Azam hit nine fours and two sixes and completed his eighth ODI century.

The 23-year-old made the utmost of the flawless platform laid out for him by Imam and Fakhar in an innings of two halves. He has scored 3 tons, including a double century, and 6 half-centuries.

The hosts were probably already out of the game once Pakistan put on 364 but they can take comfort from a much- improved batting performance. This is the most by a Pakistani batsman in an ODI series.

Prince Masvaure (39) and Murray also got starts before both fell while going for big shots.
