English county Somerset opted for Pakistan’s belligerent top-order batsman Babar Azam for the ongoing season of Vitality Blast T20 championship.
After failing in the first two odd games with the bat, Babar came back to his best and struck a magnificent 95* off 61 balls against Hampshire.
Babar took Somerset to 172-3 in their 20 overs but the bowlers of Somerset couldn’t defend the total. Hampshire won the match by 4 wickets in the last over with 3 balls to go.
Liam Dawson kept his cool in the latter part of the innings and finished the match for his team with an unbeaten 47.
