Babar Azam, the 28-year-old right-handed batsman for the Pakistani cricket team, is the captain of Pakistan in all formats.
In the first Twenty20 contest of the five-match series, played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Friday (April 14), famous Pakistani batsman Babar Azam matched former Indian captain MS Dhoni’s record of 41 victories in T20I matches. On Friday, Babar took part in Pakistan’s 100th T20 match. He led his team to 41 victories in 67 games.
In 72 T20 international matches, Dhoni has steered India to victories in 41 of them. While Babar has played the same number of games as him, he has done so in five less games. Babar is the second-most successful captain in the international short version of the game in terms of victories.
“I’m thankful to have accomplished this feat because I wasn’t anticipating it to be my 100th T20I game. The work was collaborative. Despite losing early wickets, Fakhar and Ayub helped to extend the innings. Saim has been getting better every day; good luck to him. On this wicket, I believe our hitters set up a solid total. Rauf bowled well, and so did the other bowlers, and we had a strong bowling lineup. When you have lots of possibilities, that’s good. All the bowlers adhered to their game plans, therefore it was a team effort, Babar said during the post-match presentation.
