Fakhar Zaman led Pakistan to a seven-wicket victory against New Zealand in the second one-day international on Saturday with a magnificent unbeaten 180 from 144 balls.
Zaman had already scored 117 in the first game and 101 against the same opposition in January. This was his third century in a row. In the course of his innings, Zaman broke five records. Pakistan successfully chased down a 337-run target in just 48.2 overs, claiming a 2-0 series lead.
The following three games will be played on May 3, May 5, and May 7 in Karachi.
“It was my lucky day to score again against New Zealand as I got chances,” Zaman added.
I try to take my time initially, but once there are five players in the circle, scoring is simpler.
“Outstanding” was how visiting skipper Latham characterized Zaman.
At the halfway point, we were very content, said Latham. Fakhar played an excellent knock. They were able to form relationships, which was a major accomplishment for the batting department.
