Babar Azam Record: Babar Azam did what never happened in the history of cricket

Multan: Pakistan captain Babar Azam is making many records one after the other on the cricket field. In the second match of the ODI series against West Indies (PAK vs WI), his bat scored 77 runs. If he had scored a century in this match, he would have equaled Kumar Sangakkara in the matter of scoring four centuries in 4 consecutive innings in ODI cricket. Even though he could not match Sangakkara’s record, he did a feat that no one had been able to do till date.

50+ score in 9 consecutive innings
Pakistan captain Babar Azam scored 50+ in 9th consecutive innings in international cricket (Test, ODI, T20). It started with the Test series against Australia in March. Babar then saved the Test match by playing an innings of 196 runs. In the Tests that followed, Babar’s innings of 67 and 55 runs came from the bat. He scored 57, 114 and 105* runs in three ODIs against Australia. In the T20 match held on 5 April, 66 runs came from his bat. He scored 103 runs in the first ODI against West Indies.

first batsman to do so
Babar Azam is the first batsman in the world to score 50+ in 9 consecutive international innings. Even before him, this record was registered in the name of Javed Miandad of Pakistan. He had scored 50 or more in 8 consecutive international innings. Apart from former Indian captain Rahul Dravid, West Indies’ Everton Weeks and Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara had scored 50+ in 7-7 consecutive innings.

Batting average better than Virat
Babar Azam’s batting average in ODIs has become better than Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli has scored runs in 251 ODI innings at an average of 58.07. At the same time, after 86 innings, Babar Azam’s batting average is 60.01. He has scored 4441 runs with the help of 17 centuries and 19 fifty. So far in ODIs, he has been dismissed without opening the account only thrice.
