When Pakistan beat West Indies in the first One-Day International at the Multan Cricket Stadium on Wednesday, Babar Azam rewrote multiple batting records.
He passed former Indian captain Virat Kohli as the fastest captain to score 1,000 runs in the 50-over format. After scoring a commanding century, Babar surpassed 1,000 runs.
It took only 13 innings for the world’s number one ODI batsman to achieve the milestone.
Kohli had previously reached 1,000 runs as captain in his 17th innings, followed by AB De Villiers (20) of South Africa and Kane Williamson of New Zealand (22).
Babar is also the only batsman in ODI history to score three hundred in a row twice.
He previously accomplished this feat in a match against the West Indies in 2016, but this time he did so in a match against the West Indies in April of this year, followed by two 100s in the second and third home ODIs.
