PAK vs ENG: Babar Azam breaks Virat Kohli’s big record
Notably, the Pakistan skipper has also equalled the record of Rohit Sharma for two T20I centuries as a captain. However, he also broke one massive record set by the former Indian captain, Virat Kohli. With a knock of 110*, the Pakistan captain has completed his 8000 runs in international cricket across formats. He completed this milestone in his 215th international innings, while Virat made 8000 runs in the 243rd innings of his international career.
The fastest in the world is “Universe Boss” Chris Gayle, who took 213 innings to complete 800 international runs. However, Babar has also replaced Australian skipper Aaron Finch (2877 runs) as the all-time leading scorer in T20 internationals. Now, the Pakistan skipper is the fifth highest run-getter in the shorter format with 2895 runs in 82 matches.
The Indian captain, Rohit Sharma, is at the top with 3631 runs. Virat (3586) and Martin Guptill (3497) are ranked second and third on the list, respectively. This was a record-breaking century as he was coming off some low scores in the Asia Cup 2022. Thus, many former cricketers questioned his style of batting and his slow approach. But now, he has answered everyone brilliantly. Read Mobile Bet365 reviews here and learn more about how online betting works. So what are you waiting for? Download the app now!
