Babar Azam on Brink of Becoming Highest T20I Runs Maker

Islamabad, May 20, 2024 – Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, is on the verge of setting a monumental record in T20 International (T20I) cricket.

As he gears up for the forthcoming matches against England, Babar is poised to become the highest T20I run-scorer among Pakistani batsmen, a testament to his exceptional talent and consistency.

With just 45 runs needed, Babar is set to become the first Pakistani player to amass 4000 runs in T20I cricket. This achievement would not only place him at the pinnacle of Pakistani T20I cricket but also highlight his remarkable prowess and reliability as a batsman. Currently, Babar sits third among the highest run-scorers in T20I cricket globally, with 3955 runs. He trails only India’s Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who have scored 4037 and 3974 runs, respectively.

Babar’s imminent milestones don’t stop there. To surpass Kohli’s total T20I runs, he needs just 82 more runs. If he achieves this, he will not only top the Pakistani charts but also elevate his global standing, demonstrating his status as one of the premier batsmen in the format. Kohli amassed his 4037 runs over 109 innings, while Babar, with 3955 runs in 110 innings, shows a comparable level of excellence and consistency.

Moreover, with 48 more runs, Babar will reach another landmark by becoming the only captain in T20I history to score 2500 runs. This would further solidify his reputation as a player who leads by example, consistently contributing to his team’s success through his formidable batting performances.

Babar recently added another feather to his cap by setting a world record during the T20I series against Ireland. He became the most successful T20I captain with 45 wins, surpassing the previous record held by Brian Masaba of Uganda, who had 44 victories. This achievement underscores Babar’s leadership qualities and his ability to inspire and steer his team to victories.

The upcoming four-match T20I series against England, beginning on May 22 at Headingley Cricket Ground in Leeds, is expected to be a crucial series for Babar. As he inches closer to these significant milestones, fans and cricket enthusiasts around the world are eagerly watching, anticipating another stellar performance from Pakistan’s cricketing maestro.

Babar Azam’s journey in T20I cricket is a compelling narrative of skill, determination, and record-breaking achievements. Each run he scores brings him closer to cricketing immortality, reinforcing his status as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.
