It has been nearly a year since Pakistan skipper Babar Azam scored an ODI century for the Men in Green. However, the 28-year-old has been in great touch and consistently scored half-centuries.
In the ongoing five-match ODI series against New Zealand, Babar has already scored two fifties and broke a plethora of records with his scintillating performance.
In the ongoing 3rd game against the Kiwis, Babar amassed 54(62), which included three fours and a solitary six. Meanwhile, Imam-ul-Haq was the star of Pakistan’s innings as he amassed 90(107).
After losing an early wicket, Babar and Imam stitched 108 runs stand and scripted a huge milestone in Pakistan cricket. It was the 9th time that Babar and Imam struck a 100+ partnership in ODIs, and they levelled with Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan for the most hundred partnerships for Pakistan in ODIs. Here is the complete list.
- Babar Azam and Imam-ul-Haq – 9
- Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan – 9
- Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf -8
The Men in Green are having a great run against New Zealand as they have won the first two games, and a win in the ongoing match would seal a series for Pakistan. The ongoing 3rd ODI is midway through, and the Babar Azam-led side put 287/6 on the board.
