Pakistan captain Babar Azam has become the fastest player in 50-over cricket history to score 19 hundreds.
The right-handed batsman reached the milestone while playing against Nepal in the opening match of the Asia Cup 2023 on Wednesday at the Multan Cricket Stadium. He is also the first player to reach the event’s first hundred points.
Previously held by Hashim Amla, who accomplished 19 hundred in 104 innings, Babar Azam achieved the milestone in 102 innings.
The 19th ODI century by the top-ranked ODI hitter aided team Green’s quick rebound following early deficits in the match against Nepal.
Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat first against Nepal in the Asia Cup opener.
