Pakistan took a 3-2 lead in the T20I series against England after another exciting finish at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore. It was also the second time the Men in Green successfully defended a below-par total in the ongoing series.
After winning the low-scoring nail-biter, Babar Azam has completed fifty wins for Pakistan across formats, joining the list of most successful captains including Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Misbah-ul-Haq, Inzamam-ul-Haq, and Sarfaraz Ahmad.
The 1992 World Cup-winning captain currently leads the list with 89 wins, while Wasim Akram, Misbah-ul-Haq, Inzamam-ul-Haq, and Sarfaraz Ahmad have won 78, 77, 63, and 61 matches across formats, respectively.
Last week, the all-format captain also became Pakistan’s most successful T20I captain, surpassing former skipper, Sarfaraz Ahmed’s record of winning the most matches. Sarfaraz has 29 T20I wins while Babar Azam has 32.
During the second T20I where Babar scored his second T20I century, the right-hander had also surpassed former captain, Inzamam-ul-Haq’s record for most centuries as a Pakistani captain.
It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan and visiting England will lock horns in the sixth game of the series tomorrow at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore while the last clash will also take place in Lahore.
