Babar Azam Becomes World’s 2nd Leading T201 Runs Scorer

Pakistan’s white-ball captain, Babar Azam, has surpassed Indian skipper Rohit Sharma in the list of the most T20I runs. This achievement came during the second T20I against England in Birmingham. Babar, who is 29 years old, scored 32 runs off 26 balls in this match.

This performance increased his total T20I runs to 3,987, placing him just 13 runs short of joining India’s Virat Kohli as the only players to reach 4,000 runs in T20 internationals.

Babar’s innings ended when he was dismissed by Moeen Ali while Pakistan was chasing a target of 184 runs set by England. At the time of Babar’s dismissal, Pakistan’s score was 76/3 in nine overs.

His achievement of overtaking Rohit Sharma is a significant milestone in his career and highlights his consistency and skill in T20 cricket. As the match progressed, fans were eager to see if Pakistan could achieve the challenging target, and Babar’s efforts were a crucial part of the team’s chase.
