Imam has become the sixth batsman in ODI cricket history to score 2000 runs in the quickest time. In the 46th innings of his career, this Pakistani batsman has scored 2000 ODI runs. By the way, Hashim Amla of South Africa holds the record for scoring the fastest 2000 runs in one-day internationals. In ODIs, Amla has scored 2000 runs in 40 innings. Zaheer Abbas, Kevin Pietersen, and Babar Azam scored 2000 runs in 45 ODI innings at the same time. Imam was promoted to this position in the 46th innings of the game.
By doing so, Imam has equaled the mark set by the legendary Vivian Richards. In the 48th innings, Richards scored his 2000th ODI run. In one-day internationals, Shikhar Dhawan holds the record for scoring 2000 runs in the 48th innings. In the 53rd innings, India’s legend Virat Kohli reached 2000 runs for his career.
Imam batted well in the third ODI, getting 56 off 73 balls before being removed. In his half-century innings, he hit seven fours. Imam’s ODI fifty is his tenth. Apart from Imam, Babar, who has been a disaster in the past two ODIs, has batted with caution.
In one-day international cricket, he has scored 2000 runs.
Imam-ul-Haq, the nephew of former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, has reached the 2000-run mark in one-day international cricket. In only the 46th innings, he reached this milestone.
Hashim Amla is ahead of Imam.
Imam-ul-Haq has become the fifth batsman in the history of ODI cricket to hit 2000 runs in the quickest time. Hashim Amla of South Africa holds the record for the quickest 2000 runs in ODI cricket, having done it in 40 innings. Imam also surpassed India’s Shikhar Dhawan, who had reached this milestone in the 48th innings.
