South Africa all-rounder David Wiese said it was “awesome” to see Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman “smashing it” during the recent series against the Proteas.
Zaman made scores of 8, 193 and 101 in the ODI series.
Overall, he was the highest run-scorer among both teams as he amassed 302 runs at an average of 100.66.
In the T20 series, Zaman made 27 in the first match, but missed the second game due to a rash on his leg. He returned in the third game and made eight not out.
In the fourth match, he hammered 60 runs off 34 balls, which included five boundaries and four sixes.
