Pak Vs Aus: Babar Azam Broke Several Records
Breaking records and creating cricketing history seems to be second nature to Pakistan’s Test captain, Babar Azam. Currently, he is leading the team for the Test series against Australia on home ground.
Babar produced an unforgettable performance during the second Test, smashing 196 runs to break records and change history. Babar’s innings were a remarkable feat, but it was also just one of many that have made him a legend in his own right. He has created three records during this Pak Vs Aus Test match.
- Babar has broken Shoaib Malik’s record for most deliveries faced by a Pakistani batter in the fourth innings. Previously, Shoaib Malik had faced 369 deliveries in the fourth innings. Now Babar has faced 425 balls for scoring unbeatable 196 runs.
- Babar Azam broke another record when he scored his maiden 196 runs, which is the highest score by a Pakistani batsman in the fourth innings of a Test match. He has broken the record of Younis Khan, who made 171 against Sri Lanka.
- Skipper Babar Azam scored the highest fourth-innings total by a Test captain, surpassing England’s Micheal Atherton, who scored 185 against South Africa.
When Babar Azam, following a stunning knock of 196, led Pakistan to an impossible draw, he not only raised his own stock as one of the finest and most technically correct batsmen of this era.
The fourth day of the second Test between Pakistan and Australia turned out to become the most entertaining day in recent years, with the best ever bowling performance by Australian bowlers.
