    What is the point of this series anyway? And PAK shouldn't have sent the full strength squad. Not hating pak cricket but this series is the bad cricket i have seen this year,yes fakhar batting was excellent but its like a 100 kg tiger fighting a 10 kg one.

    Becuase this is our preparation for the Asia Cup. Before this series, we last played an ODI series back in January. This series allows us to test our squad and come up with the best playing XI.

    Yeah, like Ahmad said, and our last ODI series ended up pretty badly, where we got whitewashed by New Zealand, so, although this is against Zimbabwe, it still is preparation. I believe our next ODI series will be the Australia tour of UAE, which I think is after Asia Cup, so really this is our only preparation leading to the Cup, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Another milestone for Fakhar Zaman. It's incredible to see him scoring so many runs and now the fastest to 1000 runs. Even if more than half of these came against Zimbabwe it's still a big feat nonetheless.

    Even if you take the Zimbabwe series out his figures were still very good for a young opener. Before this he scored 550 runs @ 45.33 with a SR of 94 and with 1 hundred and 4 fifties. Pakistan have found a really good opener which they have been looking for quite a long time.

    Fakhar Zaman and Imam-Ul-Haq have impressed me a lot. They both are playing very well. They are future of Pakistani Cricket.

    While Fakhar is in his prime form at the moment. We must not forget Babar Azam's quick century. What a classy inning he constructed. Pakistan must work on their consistent bowling combination.

    I believe the selectors did the right thing by sending full squad on this tour because winning is important to boost up your morale no matter if it is against a weaker opposition. We must give credit to Pakistan's great performance which made Zimbabwe looked like an associate side, while it is not the case in reality. The entire zim tour is good for Pakistan to get prepared for Asia Cup and upcoming serieses.

    Did Pakistan pile up runs like this in past tours against Zim? No, because at the moment Pakistan is adapting to modern cricket demands at a good pace.

    Great whitewash. Yes it's against Zimbabwe, where most of our recent milestones have been accomplished, but a milestone is a milestone, but I think we've been able to solve/answer some of the questions leading forward to the Asia Cup, such as an opening combination, Fakhar and Imam will work great, and I think we do have a good chance in this Cup, considering we have an advantage since UAE is our adapted home, but it is kinda stupid imo it was moved from India, when we competed in the '16 World T20 comfortably, but not here to talk about that.

    Better luck next time for Zimbabwe, cash dispute most definitely has a big role in this unfortunate avalanche.

    All 5 games played at Bulawayo was the prime reasons because top team struggle at Harare bats first.history says Bulawayo batsman paradise.

    Zaman fastest to reach 1000 runs in ODI plus Imam's 4 century in his first 10 ODI something new.
