In recent times, Pakistan captain Babar Azam has been in great form with the bat. On the other hand, former India captain Virat Kohli is not in the right rhythm in batting. While Kohli once held many cricketing records, other stars are slowly taking over. Babar is especially ahead in that race.
Babar has set a unique example of consistency over the last few matches in Pakistan’s jersey. He is setting one record after another with the bat. Azam, the current captain of Pakistan’s three formats, is slowly surpassing Kohli. This time he has taken another record of Kohli. Babar is currently the highest-ranked batsman in the T20 rankings.
Babar is the second batsman after Kohli in the International Twenty20 to be at number one in the rankings for the longest time. Earlier, Kohli was at the top of the rankings for 1013 consecutive days. Meanwhile, Babar is at the top for 1029 days (til June 28).
Not only is he reigning in the T20s, but he is also the number one batsman in ODI cricket for a long time. He is also on his way to being number one in Test cricket.
The way his bat is doing remarkably well in white, it will not be a surprise if he becomes the number one batsman soon. And if so, Babar will rule the bowlers as the number one batsman in all three formats at the same time.
