Babar Azam breaks Kohli’s record of fastest 2000 runs in T20I
HARARE (Dunya News) – Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has added another feather to his cap by breaking Indian player Virat Kohli’s record of fastest 2000 runs in Twenty20.
Babar Azam has become the 11th player to score 2000 T20I runs.
The right-handed Lahore-born batsman is in sublime form these days, as he struck his maiden T20I hundred in Pakistan’s nine-wicket win over South Africa in the third T20I at SuperSport Park on 14 April. He was also awarded with player-of-the-series award for his 210 runs at 52.50 in the four-match series.
Babar’s captaincy has been on a constant improvement since last year series against Bangladesh. The men in green have won four T20I series (Bangladesh 2-0, Zimbabwe 3-0 and South Africa 2-1 at home and 3-1 away against South Africa) besides the 1-1 series draw against England, they are yet to lose a single T20I series.
