Author: Yuvi June 11, 2022 Virat Kohli vs Babar Azam: Pakistan captain becomes first batter to achieve THIS huge feat

Babar Azam achieved another milestone in men’s international cricket history as he became the first batsman to score nine consecutive half-centuries in all three formats of cricket. The Pakistan captain scored 77 off 93 balls in the second ODI against West Indies and added another fifty-plus scores to his name to enter the record books for massive batting records.

It was Babar’s ninth consecutive fifty in men’s international cricket, which is now the longest streak for any batsman.

His half-century streak began with 196 runs during the second Test against Australia, followed by 66 and 55 in the third and final Test.

Babar scored two centuries in the three-match ODI series against Australia registering 57, 114 and 105* in three matches. In the only T20I against Men in Yellow, Babar scored 66 runs.

Earlier, the Pakistan skipper set a stellar record with his century against West Indies in the first ODI in Multan on Wednesday, becoming the first batsman to score three consecutive centuries on two separate occasions in ODIs.

Babar scored 103 runs in 107 balls to help Pakistan win by five wickets. With this outstanding feat, Babar also surpassed the long-standing record of Virat Kohli to become the fastest player to score 1,000 runs as captain in the format. He achieved the milestone in his 13th innings as Pakistan captain, while it took Kohli 17 innings to get there.

Coming to the match, Pakistan posted a total of 275/8 thanks to the lower-middle order along with Babar (77) and Imam-ul-Haq (72), who patted the visitors around the field.

Pakistan’s bowling attack, led by four wickets from Mohammad Nawaz, restricted West Indies to just 155 runs in the run-chase as Pakistan took a safe 2–0 lead in the three-match series.
