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. The No.1 T20I batsman ended up as the highest run-scorer of the T20 Blast.
Bringing out a variety of shots, Babar was invincible in his commandeering performances as his pristine striking often left fans and pundits awestruck by his sheer class. The 24-year-old played audacious strokes at will and delivered for his side Somerset whenever it mattered by breezy knocks.
Babar finished the T20 Blast, eventually won by Essex, with 578 runs across 13 innings at an alarmingly high average of 52.54 out of which he also smashed a century against Hampshire. While other batsmen played far more games than Babar in the tournament, no one could eclipse his amazing run of form.
