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.
