Pakistan has been doing admirably in 50-over cricket since the ODI World Cup 2019 in England, both in bowling and batting.
The national team has won seven bilateral One-Day International (ODI) series, including two whitewashes against the West Indies and the Netherlands, but has lost to England and New Zealand. Pakistan has also won the ongoing One-Day International series against New Zealand.
Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq, the opening left-handed hitters, have been among the best scorers this cycle and are now rated second and fifth in the ICC ODI rankings.
Babar Azam, the all-format skipper, was a steady performer during these years, topping the ICC ODI rankings for more than two years.
During these four years, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah also bowled superbly in ODIs, assisting the national team in winning matches.

The national spin bowling unit’s average is among the lowest since the major event. Spinners have an average of 41.41 wickets per match, taking 60 wickets in 26 matches, ranking bottom of the table only above New Zealand.
