Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, is on the edge of breaking the record for most T20 International victories. Currently, the 27-year-old has 26 wins out of 41 games for a win percentage of 72.22. He lost 10 of the games, although five of those games ended in a tie.
Azam took over as Pakistan’s T20I captain in 2019 after Sarfaraz Ahmed was removed from the role.
Pakistan’s most successful skipper in the shorter format remains Sarfaraz Ahmed, who was relieved of his duties as captain in 2019. The seasoned player captained the Men in Green for three years, from 2016 to 2019, winning 29 of his 37 games for a 78.37 victory percentage.
When the Asia Cup takes place in the United Arab Emirates in 2022, Babar, who was born in Lahore, has a great chance to exceed Sarfaraz’s record (UAE). On August 28 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Pakistan will begin their season against Rohit Sharma’s India.
Babar Azam is close to being the second Pakistani player to reach 8000+ runs in T20s:
In addition to his record as captain, Babar is close to being the second Pakistani player to reach 8000+ runs in T20s. The right-handed batter needs just 120 more runs to accomplish the feat. Pakistan’s top T20 run scorer right now is Shoaib Malik.
Before the Asia Cup began, Pakistan and Babar had to overcome a number of obstacles. Due to a knee and a back injury, respectively, their fast bowlers Mohammad Wasim Jr. and Shaheen Shah Afridi were sidelined.
Shaheen and Wasim Jr. were replaced by Mohammad Hasnain and Hasan Ali. Pakistan is grouped with India and Hong Kong, who won the Oman qualifier to advance to the main event after defeating Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Singapore.
