Babar Azam has added yet another record to his name by becoming the only second batter in the world to score 10 T20 hundreds!
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam achieved the milestone by scoring the 10th century of his T20 career at Lanka Premier League (LPL) on Monday.
Last night, Babar pushed his tally of T20 centuries to 10 with his maiden triple-digit score at the LPL and also claimed the title of the fourth-ever centurion in the tournament’s history.
Babar Azam has become the second in the world to hit 10 hundreds in this format of the game after West Indian legend Chris Gayle.
Babar Azam is also the first Asian batter to score 10 T20 centuries.
Gayle, who holds the record for hitting the highest individual score (175* vs Pune Warriors, IPL 2013), leads the tally with 22 tons in 463 matches.
After Babar, former Indian skipper Virat Kohli is the second Asian to score most T20 centuries with eight tons.
