Babar Azam is one of the finest batters across formats. The skipper of Pakistan likes to lead from the front and has made his performance count in the ongoing second Test against Australia in Karachi.
Chasing 506 runs to win, the hosts were 192/2 at the end of fourth day’s play. Babar was unbeaten on 102 with Abdullah Shafique (71) also at the crease.
With his most recent hundred, the right-handed batter became the third captain in the history of cricket to score a hundred in all forms of the sport.
Tillakaratne Dilshan and Faf du Plessis were the first two skippers to achieve this milestone. Even morden-day greats Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Steve Smith failed to join this elite club in their captaincy tenures.
Meanwhile, if Pakistan score the remaining runs on the final day of the match, they will break all the previous records.
