Pakistan’s white-ball captain, Babar Azam, is set to make headlines in the upcoming home series against New Zealand, as he eyes multiple records in T20I cricket.

The much-anticipated five-match T20I series, commencing on April 18 at Pindi Cricket Stadium, marks Babar Azam’s return as Pakistan’s skipper, and he’s geared up to leave his mark on the record books.

Most Runs In T20I Cricket

With 3,698 runs under his belt, Babar Azam stands as the third-highest run-scorer in T20I cricket.

He’s within striking distance of the top spot, currently held by India’s Virat Kohli. The Indian star has scored 4,037 runs, followed by Rohit Sharma with 3974 runs.

A mere 340 runs in the upcoming series would help him surpass both Kohli and Sharma to become the highest-scoring batsman in T20I history.

Babar also aims to claim the top spot and is poised to breach the coveted 4,000-run milestone, a feat achieved by only Kohli.

  • Virat Kohli: 4037 (109 innings)
  • Rohit Sharma: 3974 (143)
  • Babar Azam: 3698 (103)
  • Martin Guptill: 3531 (118)
  • Paul Stirling: 3491 (136)

Most T20I Wins As Captain

Babar Azam’s leadership prowess is equally remarkable. With 42 wins as captain, he is on par with England’s Eoin Morgan and Afghanistan’s Asghar Afghan.

Just three victories against New Zealand would propel him to the top, surpassing Uganda’s Brian Masaba’s record and becoming the most successful T20I captain with 45 wins.

Additionally, Babar’s consistency as captain positions him to equal Australia’s Aaron Finch’s record of leading his nation in the most T20Is.

Finch led his team in 76 matches, while Babar is only five matches shy of his record. He will equal Finch’s record if he plays all matches against New Zealand.

Most T20I Runs As Captain

Babar Azam is also on the verge of eclipsing Aaron Finch’s record for the most runs scored as a T20I captain.

With a mere 42 runs separating him from Finch’s tally of 2236 runs, Babar is determined to surpass this milestone and cement his status as one of the premier leaders and batsmen in the T20I arena.

  • Aaron Finch: 2236 runs (76 innings)
  • Babar Azam: 2195 (65)
  • Kane Williamson: 2125 (71)
