The cricketing world is booming with news and updates. Where series are won, players are making records, and much more. We are going to share some amazing news from the cricketing world with you.
Pakistan wins the ODI series by 2-1
Pakistan winning the ODI series by 2-1 has been a proud moment for Pakistan. It has been a dream to defeat Australia on the home ground. They won by nine wickets. For Pakistan, Babar Azam (105), Imam ul Haq (89), Rauf Haris (3/39), and Imad Wasim (3/40) were the star players.
Babar Azam making records
Every innings that Babar plays makes a record. Whether it is beating the players at home or internationally. There is no stopping him. He made 16 centuries in just 84 ODI innings. He broke the record of Yousuf and Saeed Anwar. Yousuf had scored 15 centuries in 267 innings for Pakistan whereas Saeed Anwar is top on the list with 20 centuries in 244 innings.

Babar offered BBL
Australian players are impressed by Babar Azam. Aaron Finch has offered him to be part of the Big Bash League. He said, “Any of the Pakistan guys, we love having them as part of our competition. The talent of Pakistan cricket is extraordinary. I think world cricket is better when Pakistan is playing well and world cricket is better when they have the opportunity to play in our domestic league. If Babar Azam is available to play Big Bash, any team would love to have him. It would be great to have more world-class players in our domestic competition.”
