IND vs PAK: Babar Azam Achieves This Milestone Against India Despite Crushing Defeat In Ahmedabad
IND vs. PAK: Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, scored his first fifty runs in an ODI against India. Babar is now the best ODI batsman in the world with over 5400 runs, 19 hundreds, and 28 half-centuries in his record-breaking career.
IND vs. PAK: In the much awaited match between bitter rivals India and Pakistan at the ODI World Cup 2023, India won for the eighth time in a row, easily defeating Pakistan by seven wickets. Shreyas Iyer's undefeated 53 and Rohit Sharma's outstanding 86 made sure the 192 was easily chased down.
Pakistan fell to 191, despite having a great start. At the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Pakistan's skipper Babar Azam accomplished a noteworthy milestone by hitting his first fifty-seven in an ODI match against India.
Following their toss victory, India decided to field first. Following the early removal of opener Abdullah Shafique, Pakistan's batting stalwart Babar Azam came to the crease at number three.
Babar started his innings quickly and did not waste any time. In just 57 deliveries, he reached his fifty, which was a major turning point in his ODI career against India. After failing to reach a half-century against the Indian squad in five consecutive matches, the fifty put an end to that run.
Mohammed Siraj eventually got rid of Babar in the thirtyth over. Babar was instrumental in establishing a critical 82-run partnership for the third wicket with teammate Muhammad Rizwan. Pakistan's batting collapsed when Babar was removed, and the team was eventually bowled out for a meagre 191 runs.
In the 2017 Champions Trophy, Babar faced India for the first time and was dismissed for just eight runs. He did, however, score 46 in the tournament's final, which Pakistan won. Against India in the 2018 Asia Cup and the 2019 World Cup, Babar had scored in the forties and was on the verge of a half-century, but he was unable to convert them.
Babar Azam has scored more than 5400 runs at an incredible average of more than 57 during his whole ODI career. He has an outstanding record that consists of 19 centuries and 28 half-centuries. As of right now, he is the best batsman in the ODI format.
