JOHANNESBURG: National team opener Fakhr Zaman set a new record by scoring 193 runs in the second ODI against South Africa.
According to the details, opener Fakhr Zaman played an innings of 193 runs off 155 balls against South Africa but he could not give victory to the team. His innings included 10 sixes.
The 193-run innings at the Johannesburg Wanderers is the largest by a foreign cricketer on South African soil, after David Warner’s 173 in Cape Town.
Fakhr Zaman’s innings included 10 sixes, making him the third player to hit 10 or more sixes in an ODI against South Africa.
Martin Guptill hit 11 sixes against South Africa, while in 2010 Abdul Razzaq also hit 10 sixes for the South African bowlers.
Fakhr Zaman’s individual score is the second highest score by any ODI losing team, the highest score by Zimbabwe’s Charles Contre who could not save Zimbabwe from defeat against Bangladesh even after scoring 194 runs.
