Babar Azam's All T20I Records, Joins Top Run Getters

Former Pakistan captain Babar Azam claimed the third-highest runscorer title in T20Is, marking his 31st half-century in a stylish manner during the initial T20I clash against New Zealand in Auckland. Despite Babar’s commendable innings, Pakistan fell short in their pursuit, allowing New Zealand to seize a 1-0 lead in the series.

The batting maestro from Pakistan notched up his fifty in just 33 balls, including 5 fours and 2 sixes, displaying leadership prowess and precision in pacing his innings. With three centuries in T20Is and 19 in ODIs, Babar Azam is closing in on Saeed Anwar’s record of the most ODI centuries (20).

Babar Azam now stands behind Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who have amassed substantial runs in T20Is, scoring 4,038 and 3,853 runs, respectively.

Before this innings, Babar had struggled, going without a fifty in his last 12 innings. However, his innings of 57 runs off 35 balls, cut short by Ben Sears, marked the beginning of a batting collapse that ultimately led to New Zealand securing a 47-run victory in the five-match T20I series.
