Pak vs SA: It has been ‘Babar Azam’ for more than a day in the trending session of Twitter. Babar, who has been serving Pakistan Cricket with pride, has taken the country to heights as everyone understands his achievement has lifted the nation to the top.
Notably, Pakistan’s skipper is now the only third from his country to have a hundred in T20Is. Other than him, Ahmed Shehzad, Mohammad Rizwan have piled up tons in every format of the game and next appears Babar in the lane.
Not only this, his untiring efforts are record-breaking. His worth watching inning makes him the men in green with the highest T20I score yet. The captain’s score is also the highest among the world while chasing against South Africa.
As Babar and co recently coiled up a three-match ODI series versus South Africa, the series has been blossoming for Babar. He has scored 228 at an average of 78 as the men in green won the series by 2-1.
When Babar had a chat with Kohli, what they discussed? Here it is
Babar Azam has dethroned India’s skipper, Virat Kohli, to become the ranked No. 1 ODI batsman. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has taken so long to update the ranking as it was officially on-screened on Wednesday.
As of now, Babar has 865 points which slid Kohli down on the second spot with 857 points. Undoubtedly, Kohli had an appealing ODI series versus England recently.
Despite the fact that his struggle for an ODI century continues yet, he slammed 129 runs in three matches at an average of 43. Hunting for a ton in the format might be possible why Kohli’s 1258 days of supremacy have come to an end.
Discussing his success, he opened up saying that he once had a conversation with the Indian captain who advised him to focus more on net training and not to take it lightly compared to the matches.
I once talked to Virat Kohli and he told me to take net sessions as seriously as matches
