Pakistan’s ace batsman Babar Azam is in the midst of a record-breaking run spree in the ongoing Vitality T20 Blast, showcasing his astounding levels of talent in all forms of the game. Although initially dubbed as a batsman possessing issues of low strike rate not in line with the demands of fast-paced T20 cricket, Babar has smashed all these runs with emphatic knocks for Somerset.
He currently leads the batting charts for top run-scorers in the current calendar year surpassing the likes of AB de Villiers and Shane Watson. Moreover, a testimony of Babar’s penchant for taking the responsibility and scoring big for any side is the fact he has been the top-scorer for his team (Pakistan, Karachi Kings or Somerset) on 40 occasions out of 115 innings.
His percentage regarding this comes out to be 34.78 which is the best, overshadowing Chris Gayle who has top-scored in 124 out of 376 innings (32.97%).
