With his latest Test hundred against Australia in Karachi, Babar Azam has registered a big list of records.
One of those records made him the only second batter in cricket history to smash a century chasing in Tests, ODIs, and T20Is.
The first was KL Rahul of India, whose stature has grown in the last few years in international cricket.
Babar Azam’s sixth Test hundred came after 2 years, and it was the perfect time to touch a three-figure mark as his team was in a spot of bother and could have lost easily had he not come up with a brilliant batting display.
He has kept Pakistan in the hunt for a sensational victory in the second Test of the series.
Along with him, Abdullah Shafique has shown his class. He is on the verge of completing his hundred.
The first Test in Rawalpindi had ended in a dull draw, and the pitch came under the scanner for offering no support to the bowlers.
