Mohammad Rizwan to Surpass Virat Kohli & Babar Azam’s Record

Mohammad Rizwan, the pakistan wicket-keeper batsman is on the cusp of rewriting history in T20I cricket. The current record for reaching 3,000 runs in the shortest format of the game is jointly held by two cricketing giants: Virat Kohli from India and Babar Azam from Pakistan.

Both of them achieved this remarkable feat in 81 innings. However, Rizwan is tantalizingly close to eclipsing this record. Having amassed 2,981 runs in just 78 innings, he needs a mere 19 runs in his next two innings to claim this record for himself.

This potential achievement not only highlights Rizwan’s exceptional batting prowess but also underscores his consistency and impact in T20I cricket.

On the other hand, Babar Azam, the current linchpin of Pakistan’s batting lineup, has his sights set on another illustrious record.

He is chasing Virat Kohli’s record for the most runs scored in T20I cricket. Azam, with his elegant stroke play and impeccable timing, has already amassed 3,698 runs in T20I cricket.

To overtake Kohli’s tally of 4,037 runs and claim the coveted title of the highest run-scorer in T20I cricket, Azam needs to score an additional 340 runs in the upcoming five matches against New Zealand.

Achieving this milestone would not only solidify Azam’s stature as one of the modern-day greats but also place him in an elite club alongside Kohli and his compatriot Rohit Sharma, who have both crossed the 4,000-run mark in T20I cricket.

The stage is set for an exhilarating T20I series between Pakistan and New Zealand. The five-match series promises high-octane cricket, filled with thrilling moments, fierce rivalries, and potentially record-breaking performances.

The series opener is scheduled to take place on April 18 in Rawalpindi, followed by two more matches at the same venue on April 20 and 21.The action will shift to Lahore, where the final two matches of the series will be played on April 25 and 27.

As the cricketing world turns its attention to this eagerly anticipated series, all eyes will be on Rizwan and Azam. Their performances will not only shape the outcome of the series but also add an extra layer of excitement and intrigue, making it a must-watch for cricket enthusiasts around the globe.
