Babar Azam is one of the best batters in international cricket, and a failure in a couple of matches doesn’t mean he is out of form and has lost touch with the bat.

In the second match of the tri-series against New Zealand, he amassed 79 not out off 53 balls with the help of 11 fours.

His runs came at a strike rate of 149.05 as the Men in Green won the match by 6 wickets.

The sub-continent team has been impressive in New Zealand ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup Down Under.

Meanwhile, Babar is the first Asian player to score 10 T20I 50+ scores in SENA countries. The next on the list is Rohit Sharma, who has hit 9.

Earlier, the visitors restricted the home team to 147/8, with Haris Rauf taking three wickets. Mohammad Wasim and Mohammad Nawaz added two each, respectively.

For New Zealand, Devon Conway (36), Mark Chapman (32) and Kane Williamson (31) were the top performers with the bat.
