Imam-ul-Haq continued his rich form as he scored a seventh straight score of 50 or more in the third Pakistan-West Indies ODI at Multan on Sunday. Upon reaching the 50-run milestone, Imam became the only second cricketer to score more than six consecutive centuries in the ODIs. However, the captain of the Pakistani cricket team Babar Azam, who scored his sixth consecutive goal in the last half-century in his second ODI game against the West Indies, lost only 1 and missed the record. Pakistan has won three ODIs after winning the first two.
Imam, who finished out 62 in the third ODI, had scores of 56, 103, 106, 89, 65 and 72 in the previous matches.
Imam has now passed Mark Waugh, Gordon GreenidgeAndrew Jones, Mohammad Yusuf, Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Paul Stirling, Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson in the list of elite beaters with 6 plus 50 in a row in the ODI. Pakistani batting legend Javed Miandad is holding the record for the most consecutive 50 plus points in ODIs. He had 9 straight points of 50 or more in 1987.
Pakistan’s captain won the pitch and chose to hit the day-night international match Tuesday and finally meet the West Indies in Multan on Sunday.
