Maintaining his dominance, Pakistan captain Babar Azam broke another Indian captain Virat Kohli’s record during the Man in the Greens T20 World Cup match against Namibia in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
The captain scored 70 off 49 balls during the match against Namibia, which included seven fours.
Babar has thus surpassed Kohli to become the only batsman to score 14 half-centuries in T20I.
It took Babar just 27 innings to reach this milestone while Kohli scored more runs in 44 innings.
The fastest captain to score 1000 T20I
The Pakistani captain also became the fastest 1,000-run captain – a record Kohli previously held. Azam achieved this milestone during the match against Afghanistan last week.
Azam scored his first 1000 T20I runs as captain of the Pakistan cricket team in 26 innings.
Virat Kohli as captain of the Indian cricket team played 30 innings and scored 1000 T20I runs.
