The men in green had been cruising before the break, reaching 160/1 in 21.3 overes; in a colossal chase against New Zealand, Fakhar Zaman played a remarkable innings, scoring a sensational century off just 63 balls, leading Pakistan's charge.

However, Fakhar continued his aggressive hitting, taking on Trent Boult and Glenn Philips in particular. His century is the fastest by a Pakistan batter in World Cups.

Meanwhile, Babar Azam also held his ground and remained solid at the crease.(KNS).
