Fakhar Zaman became the first batsman to hit 100 sixes in the history of Pakistan Super League (PSL) on Saturday in this season’s final against Multan Sultans in Lahore.

The left-hander achieved the milestone by top-edging a bouncer from Ihsanullah for a six. Qalandars’ opener reached this milestone in his 76th  PSL innings.

The batsmen with the most sixes in PSL after Fakhar are Kamran Akmal (89), Asif Ali (88), Shane Watson (81) and Shoaib Malik (77).

Fakhar played a rather gritty knock of 39 runs in 34 balls, before getting dismissed by Usama Mir. The left-hander smashed four fours and a six in his innings against Sultans in the final.
