Inspirational skipper Babar Azam confirmed his place among the list of all-time greats with a superb individual century against Nepal in the opening game of the Asia Cup in Multan on Wednesday.
Babar stroked a magnificent 151 from just 131 deliveries and in the process went past South Africa great Hashim Amla and became the quickest player in the history of the game to score 19 ODI centuries.
Babar reaches the feat from just 102 ODI innings, with Amla holding the previous best mark in 104 innings.
Babar Azam was at his brilliant best as he scored a superb century against New Zealand at the 2019 World Cup.
The world’s No.1 ranked ODI batter hit 14 fours and four massive sixes during his entertaining innings and more records came tumbling as a result.- The 151 was the second highest score achieved at the Asia Cup, only bettered by Virat Kohli’s 183 against Pakistan in 2012.
