Well-known fast bowling coach Ian Pont saluted Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman for putting up “one of the truly great ODI innings of all time”.
This comes after Zaman scored a breathtaking 193, which came off 155 balls and included 18 boundaries and 10 sixes, in the second ODI against South Africa on Sunday.
Even though his knock went in vain as the Proteas won by 17 runs, Pont said Zaman’s knock was “just bloody fantastic”.
Here's to you @FakharZamanLive!
One of the truly GREAT ODI innings – of all time. I salute you.
