Imam-ul-Haq smashed his third century of the series and Fakhar Zaman became the fastest batsman to complete 1,000 runs in ODIs as Pakistan swept Zimbabwe 5-0 with a 131-run win in the fifth one-day global on Sunday.

Fakhar began Sunday's fifth ODI against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo with 980 runs from 17 innings and cut home seamer Tendai Chatara for four to move from 17 to 21 and break the record during an innings of 85.

In the fourth ODI against Zimbabwe on Friday, Fakhir scored an unbeaten 210 runs, hitting five sixes and 24 boundaries in 156 deliveries.

In the last match, he also became the quickest batsman to get to 1000 ODI runs.

"It was a great team effort to win 5-0 against Zimbabwe", said Ahmed.

Sarfraz was satisfied to see the batsmen making the most of a good start and converting them into something substantial- a recurring theme in the batting department for the Men in Green over the course of the five-match series.

Zaman finished the series scoring the second-most number of runs in a bilateral series in all ODI history, going ahead of Rohit Sharma's mark of 491 runs against Australia in 2013.

Sarfaraz took off the gloves to bowl the 48th and 50th overs of Zimbabwe's innings.

Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq added 168 runs for the opening wicket which was also their fourth hundred-run partnership.

While Fakhar's batting exploits have been the talk of the series and rightly so, it is easy to forget that his opening partner has had a stellar time as well. He is now the first batsman to make four ODI centuries inside his first ten matches. The youngster has now managed to convert all his half-centuries into tons.

When will the 5th ODI between Pakistan and Zimbabwe start?

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. Prince Masvaure made 39 and Ryan Murray contributed 47 - personal bests for both players in their short careers.
