Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam added another feather to his cap when he became the first Pakistani player with most hundreds in Twenty20 cricket for Pakistan.
During the ongoing National T20 Cup match against Northern, Azam remained unbeaten on 105 runs, taking just 63 balls, which helped him notch up his sixth hundred in T20 cricket.
The right-hander reached the milestone in 185 innings. The record was previously jointly held by Azam’s Central Punjab teammates Ahmed Shehzad and Kamran Akmal, who have five hundred each.
Babar smashed three sixes and stroked 11 shots to the fence to score an unbeaten 105 off 63 to help his team post 200/2 in 20 overs. This was Babar’s sixth T20 century — the most by a Pakistani batsman in the format.
Babar is also the 9th batsman in the world and first Pakistani Player to score at least six T20 centuries. The most numbers of centuries, 22, are scored by West Indian Chris Gayle. Babar is now eyeing to break Chris Gayle’s record of quickest to 7,000 runs. He needs 16 runs in 6 innings to break the record set by Gayle.
