Babar Azam has added another feather to his cap by being the fastest captain to score 1,000 runs in 50-over cricket, breaking the mark set by former Indian leader Virat Kohli.
The in-form hitter needed 98 runs to accomplish this milestone, which he achieved in style by producing a thrilling century against the West Indies in the first One-Day International. This feat took him only 13 innings to complete.
Virat Kohli, the former Indian captain, took 17 innings, AB de Villiers of South Africa 18 innings, Kane Williamson of New Zealand 20 innings, and England’s Alastair Cook 21 innings.
