Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan’s cricket team, has achieved another milestone in One Day International (ODI) cricket. During the fourth ODI match against New Zealand in Karachi on Friday, Babar Azam broke the world record for being the fastest batter to score 5,000 runs in ODI cricket, reaching the milestone in just 97 innings.
This is a tremendous achievement for Babar, as it took the previous record holder, Hashim Amla, 101 innings to reach this feat.
Babar’s achievement puts him at the top of the list of the fastest batters to score 5,000 ODI runs, followed by Hashim Amla (101), Viv Richards (114), Virat Kohli (114), and David Warner (115). He has become the first batter in the world to score 5,000 ODI runs in under 100 innings.
This is not the first time that Babar has achieved such a feat. Last week, he also became the second-fastest Asian batter to score 12,000 international runs, narrowly missing out on the record held by Virat Kohli.
Babar achieved this remarkable feat during his 49-run knock in the first ODI against New Zealand at Pindi Cricket Stadium. He reached this milestone in his 277th international inning, while Kohli took only 276 innings.
Babar Azam’s remarkable performance has earned him widespread praise from cricket fans and experts worldwide. His latest world record will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most significant achievements in the history of ODI cricket.Facebook or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
