Top 3 scores for Babar Azam in T20Is

122 versus South Africa

Babar Azam’s first and to date his only century in T20Is came earlier this year when he hit a magnificent 122 off just 59 deliveries against South Africa in April. Facing the Proteas in Centurion, Babar struck 15 fours and 4 sixes, maintaining a strike-rate of 206.77 in his team’s highly impressive run-chase and win.

97* versus West Indies

Next up is an unbeaten 97 off 58 balls from Babar’s willow against West Indies in April 2018. The batter struck 13 fours and 1 six during his knock, which helped Pakistan dominate the tourists to a win in Karachi.

90 versus South Africa

Babar Azam also blazed a superb 90 off 58 deliveries versus the South Africans during Pakistan’s 2018-19 tour of the rainbow nation. This knock in Johannesburg included 13 fours and 1 six. Sadly for Babar, though, his exceptional knock in the run-chase was not good enough to take Pakistan home as they suffered a narrow loss.
