Babar Azam Needs Only 83 Runs to Break Kohli Record of Most Runs in T201

Pakistan’s white-ball captain, Babar Azam, is on the brink of making history in T20 International (T20I) cricket. He is set to break a significant record currently held by Indian cricket superstar Virat Kohli during the upcoming series against England.

Virat Kohli is presently the highest run-scorer in T20I history, having amassed 4,037 runs in 109 innings. Babar Azam is close to surpassing this milestone, needing just 83 runs to overtake Kohli’s record.

As of now, Babar Azam ranks third among the highest T20I run-scorers. He has accumulated 3,955 runs, placing him just behind Kohli and another Indian cricket icon, Rohit Sharma, who has scored 3,974 runs in T20Is.

The upcoming four-match T20I series against England presents a golden opportunity for Azam to break the record and become the first Pakistani player to score 4,000 runs in T20I cricket. This achievement would not only mark a personal milestone for Azam but also a proud moment for Pakistani cricket.

Beyond his remarkable batting skills, Babar Azam is also recognized as the most successful T20I captain in cricket history, boasting 46 victories. He holds another record for the most runs scored as a captain in T20I cricket, with a total of 2,452 runs. Azam is just 48 runs away from becoming the first captain to reach 2,500 runs in this format.

The Pakistan team, led by Babar Azam, will begin their four-match T20I series against England on May 22 at Headingley in Leeds. The series will conclude on May 30 at The Oval in London. This series is eagerly anticipated by cricket fans, as Azam’s potential record-breaking performance adds an exciting dimension to the matches.

Azam’s journey to this point has been marked by consistent performances and a steadfast dedication to the game. His leadership and batting prowess have been instrumental in elevating Pakistan’s status in international T20 cricket. As the series against England approaches, all eyes will be on Babar Azam to see if he can achieve these historic milestones.
