KARACHI : Pakistan Head Coach Mickey Arthur has tipped opener Fakhar Zaman to score consecutive double centuries, by replicating his exploits from the fourth ODI in the final match of the series.
“Enjoy the moment but remember there could be another on Sunday,” Arthur said in a video message after the end of the fourth ODI against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo.
The South African also praised Zaman for his record-breaking achievement while mentioning his pre-match conversation with the opener.
“Congratulations Fakhar on a brilliant double-hundred,” Arthur said. “We always said it was brewing and we had a little chat on the way to the ground. I felt that if we batted first, you had a chance of getting a double-hundred and you carried that out today.
He added: “It just shows you batting is going from strength to strength, you are playing exceptionally well all around the ground, your batting is getting better and better and you are improving all the time and that’s what we want in this team.”
