- 28, April , 2023
Newstoday: Fakhar Zaman, Pakistan's powerful opener, is one of the team's most crucial ODI players. The left-handed opener produced a brilliant century in the first ODI against New Zealand, steering the Men in Green to victory. Fakhar's extraordinary consistency in the 50-over game, along with his adventurous manner at the top of the order, ranked him as the best ODI hitter in history. While the has been regular, his strike rate has been his greatest asset. His strike rate of 92.89 is second only to the great Shahid Afridi among Pakistani batsmen with at least 50 ODI innings. Fakhar's strike rate is greater than that of current captain Babar Azam, who is widely considered as one of the world's top hitters. The legendary bowler, Waseem Akram and Sarfraz Ahmed stand fourth and fifth in Pakistan ODI history.
