Babar Azam, captain of Pakistan in all formats, needs one more victory in the shortest format to set a new record. Breaking records in T20s by this Pakistani cricketer, Babar Azam is all that we need.
When Babar’s team takes on New Zealand in the fourth Twenty20 International match at the Pindi Cricket Stadium on Thursday (today), he will have the chance to write his name in the record books as the skipper who led his team to the most victories.
After 42 victories, Babar is now tied for first place in this record with Asghar Afghan of Afghanistan and Eoin Morgan of England. Both men have held this record previously. The Green Shirts have won 69 T20 Internationals under the leadership of the 28-year-old skipper.
While he was Pakistan’s captain, the team advanced to the semifinals of the Twenty20 World Cup in both 2021 and 2022, with the latter competition seeing them finish as runners-up overall.
At the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Babar hit his third Twenty20 International century while playing against the Black Caps in the second Twenty20 International.
Babar is very near to surpassing the record held by Rohit Sharma, an Indian cricketer who is now first on the list of most hundreds scored by players on the International Cricket Council (ICC).
He is the only Pakistani hitter in the format who has scored more than one hundred runs. Because of the century, Babar has moved up to within striking distance of the top spot on the list of batsmen who have the most T20I tonnes.
During the course of the game, Babar was able to reach his half-century in just 36 balls. He then proceeded to score 51 runs off the subsequent 22 deliveries, including 36 runs off the final three overs.
In the last over of the innings, Babar finished up his century by smashing James Neesham for two fours and a six, bringing his total for the innings to 100 runs. Thus we are proud of Babar Azam for breaking the records.
