The opener, who was playing his first game against India didn't let the nerves get to him as he attacked the Indian bowling with some swagger.
He got a reprieve early on in the innings, when he was bowled on 3 by Jasprit Bumrah, but replays showed he had overstepped the bowling mark.
After that Zaman didn't look back, first it was a 128-run partnership with Azhar Ali, and then a 72-run partnership with Babar Azam which put Pakistan on top.
He was particularly brutal on Indian spinners, smashing Jadeja for 33 runs of 23 balls and Ashwin for 45 runs from 33 balls.
Zaman hit 12 fours and 3 sixes in his innings.
The left-hander wasn't overawed by the occasion, and looked totally comfortable on the big stage. He didn't show any nerves which Pakistan usually do against India.
He was also awarded the man of the match award for his performance.
The cricket world will be keenly keeping an eye on the southpaw, and Pakistan will be hoping that he can continue to improve and build on after announcing himself in such a way.
