Babar Azam had a record-breaking spree in his maiden appearance in the Vitality T20 Blast as he punished all oppositions with his exquisite drives and fantastic strokes. Keeping a brisk rate of scoring, Babar was the standout performer for his team and currently leads the run charts for the tournament despite Somerset being knocked out of the competition.
As an ode to Babar’s terrific form, Somerset posted a montage of his batting finesse which outclassed bowling attacks. Bringing out a wide array of shots, Babar was unstoppable in his dominant show as he middled the ball more often than not in his first-ever stint in England’s domestic circuit.
Babar finished the tournament with 578 runs across 13 innings at an astonishing average of 52.54 while his runs tally also included a stunning century against Hampshire. The 24-year-old also occupies the top slot in the ICC T20I rankings for batsmen.
