The Pakistan cricket team toured Zimbabwe in July 2018 to play five One Day International (ODI) matches.[1] All the fixtures were played at the Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo.[2] Originally, the tour was scheduled to have two Tests, three ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).[3][4]

In the fourth match of the series, Fakhar Zaman became the first batsman for Pakistan to score a double century in ODIs.[5] His score of 210 not out broke the previous highest individual total for a Pakistan of 194 runs, scored by Saeed Anwar during the 1997 Pepsi Independence Cup.[6] Zaman, along with Imam-ul-Haq, also made the highest opening partnership in ODIs, scoring 304 runs for the first wicket.[7] This led to Pakistan scoring their highest score in ODIs, finishing their innings at 399/1.[5][7]

In the fifth match, Zaman became the fastest player to score 1,000 runs in ODIs.[8] He reached the milestone in 18 innings, beating the previous record of 21 innings, held by five other batsmen.[9] Zaman went on to score 85 runs in the match, bringing his total to 515 runs in the series, the most by a Pakistan batsman in a bilateral ODI series.[10] Zaman and Imam had scored 705 runs together across the series, the most by a pair in a bilateral ODI series.[10] Zaman also recorded the most runs scored by a batsman between two dismissals in ODIs, with 455.[11] Pakistan went on to win the series 5–0.[12]

Squads[edit]

Ahead of the second ODI, Malcolm Waller withdrew himself from Zimbabwe's squad, citing labour-practice concerns.[15] Ahead of the third ODI, Haris Sohail withdrew himself from Pakistan's squad for the remainder of the tour, due to his daughter's illness.[16]
