Pakistan captain Babar Azam became the fastest player to score 1000 T20I runs as captain on Friday, breaking another record set by his Indian counterpart Virat Kohli during the ongoing T20 World Cup match between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Kohli captained the Indian cricket team to score 1000 T20I runs in 30 innings while Azam scored 1000 T20I runs in 26 innings.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s national squad broke another world record during Friday’s match when wicketkeeper Muhammad Rizwan equaled the record of former Indian captain and legendary cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

As a wicket-keeper, Rizwan had the distinction of being the most T20I bowler in a single year.

Playing against Afghanistan in his third T20 World Cup, Rizwan has taken 39 T20s in a calendar year.

MS Dhoni did the same in 2016 when he also played a role in 39 T20 outs in the same year.
