Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq broke a number of records with his career-best knock of 151 in the third ODI against England in Bristol on Tuesday.
Imam made the highest score by a Pakistan batsman against England in ODI history as he easily surpassed the previous record, which was Fakhar Zaman’s 138 in the second ODI in Southampton on Saturday.
He also became the quickest player to score six ODI centuries, needing just 27 innings to do so.
Sri Lanka batsman Upul Tharanga used to hold the record as he accomplished the feat in just 29 innings.
In addition, he also became the youngest player to score more than 150 runs in an ODI in England at 23 years and 153 days old. The record used to belong to legendary India all-rounder Kapil Dev after he struck an unbeaten 175 against Zimbabwe in Royal Tunbridge Wells during the 1983 World Cup at the age of 24 years and 163 days.
Imam’s knock against England was also the fifth-highest score by a Pakistan batsman in ODI history.
