Though Pakistan lost the 2nd ODI match against South Africa. Fakhar has won the hearts of all the cricket fans around the world. This is Fakhar Zaman highest score in ODI while chasing. In fact, this score was the highest score by any batsmen in the world while chasing.
Fakhar scored 193 runs in just 125 balls yesterday against SA in the 2nd match. He was out of the form for a while now and was on the verge of being dropped.
South Africa batted first and set a momentous target of 342 in 50 overs. Pakistan needed Fakhar Zaman to score runs and get back in the form. At the start, he started with a slow run-rate but gradually picked up the speed.
Fakhar stood up when the Pakistan team needed him the most. He scored 193 runs while the rest of the team scored 141 runs only.
Fakhar Zaman highest score in ODI is 210 runs against Zimbabwe in 2018. After that innings, his career started to decline.
With his brilliant innings, Fakhar Zaman nearly won the game for Pakistan single-handedly. The way he batted throughout the innings it will not wrong to say that this was an innings of a lifetime by Fakhar.
A lot of cricketers and commentators around the world are praising Fakhar Zaman for his mind-blowing innings. Surely he deserved a double hundred.

He previously has a double hundred against Zimbabwe in 2018 and if he had done that yesterday then he would have joined the elite group of double centurions.
He would be achieved the milestone of 200 if Quinton de Kock hasn’t cheated and display the act of fake fielding. Then this could be Fakhar Zaman highest score in ODI while chasing among all the batsmen.
