WATCH: Babar Azam Requests Reporters To Hurry Up As He Wants To Offer Namaz Prayers

In Sri Lanka's Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Monday, Pakistan captain Babar Azam was playing for Colombo Strikers in the Lanka Premier League.

He scored a super 104 in 59 balls against Galle Titans. Babar's great striking helped Colombo Strikers beat Titans by seven wickets with just one ball left in a 189-run chase.

After the game was over, Babar asked the cameras to hurry up because he wanted to go pray. A Pakistani writer shared the film of the event on X, which used to be called Twitter. The popular song can be seen below.

Babar Azam's century on Monday in the Colombo Strikers vs. Galle Titans Lanka Premier League (LPL 2023) match made him only the second batter in the world, after West Indies T20 star Chris Gayle, to score 10 or more centuries in T20 cricket.

Babar Azam is currently ranked third among hitters in the ICC Men's T20 rankings. He has scored three T20 centuries for Pakistan at the international level. He has scored two centuries in both the Vitality Blast and the National T20 Cup. He has also scored one century in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and another in a tour match against Leicestershire.

With his century in the Lanka Premier League 2023, Babar now has 10 T20 centuries. He is also only the fourth player to score a century in the Lanka Premier League since it started in 2018.
