Babar Azam scores run at will. He’s easy on the eyes and fits in all formats of the game.
Babar, who turns 25 on Tuesday, smashed yet another T20 century this year, entering into the list of elite cricketers, including Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle.
Babar Azam’s figures are slightly better than Kohli’s however, it remains to be seen if he continues to stay ahead of Indian captain in the future as well.

Babar’s all three tons have come this year from 35 innings. His centuries breakdown is as follows:
- Pakistan vs. Leicestershire — 101
- Somerset vs. Hampshire — 101*
- Central Punjab vs. Sindh — 102*
