Pakistan captain Babar Azam made another achievement in his name on Sunday. Babar Azam became the fastest batsman to complete 7000 runs in the shortest format of cricket. He achieved this position in the National T20 Cup match. After the cancellation of the bilateral series against New Zealand, the big stars of Pakistan are playing in this domestic tournament. In this tournament, Pakistani players are preparing for the T20 World. Azam, who is captaining Central Punjab in the National T20 Cup, batted brilliantly in this match against Southern Punjab and scored a half-century. Babar crossed the 7000-run mark in the shortest format of cricket in his 187th innings. With the help of Azam’s 59-run innings, his team won. This was Southern Punjab’s sixth consecutive defeat in the tournament. With this Babar Azam left behind Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli, Gayle completed 5000 runs in 192 innings. Azam is the highest run-scorer in the National T20 Cup. Earlier, he had scored his sixth century in T20, leaving behind Virat Kohli. Azam made it to the list of Rohit Sharma and Shane Watson. He became the batsman to score the most centuries in T20 cricket. Kohli has five T20 centuries to his name. The clash between the two legendary players will be seen on October 24 when India and Pakistan will face each other in the T20 World Cup.
