Babar Azam creates another record

Pakistan’s prolific young batsman, Babar Azam added another feather to his cap during the match against Bangladesh when he surpassed legendary batsman Javed Miandad as Pakistan’s highest run-scorer in a single World Cup campaign.

Babar, who missed out on his second century of World Cup 2019 by just 4 runs, finished with 474 runs in what turned out to be Pakistan's last match at the ongoing tournament. The member of 1992 World Cup winning side, Miandad scored 424 runs in a single edition.

The 24-year-old is also one of only two Pakistanis to have scored more than 400 runs in a World Cup edition. Babar earlier also achieved the milestone of becoming the fastest Asian cricketer to reach the 3,000 runs mark in ODIs.
