Babar Azam registers another record,Virat Kohli is 3rd on the list
Pakistan’s captain and flamboyant batter Babar Azam on Thursday once again registered his name in the record books when he became the quickest batsman in the world to reach his 15th ODI hundred.
Babar smashed a century during the second ODI against Australia in Lahore to surpass South Africa’s Hashim Amla in the list of taking the fewest innings to score 15 ODI hundreds.
The 27-year-old cricketer reached this milestone in the 83rd inning of his ODI career. Amla had scored his 15 centuries in 86 innings. No other batter could score 15 centuries in less than 100 innings.
Virat Kohli is 3rd on the list and took 106 innings to reach the mark of 15 ODI centuries.
Earlier, in the first ODI of the three-match series, Babar had become the fastest Asian batter to reach the 4,000 ODI runs mark, he was only one inning short of levelling Hashim Amla’s record quickest to 4,000 runs in ODIs.
Babar had earlier scored his 14th century in the 81st inning, 13th in the 76th innings — both quickest for the respective sequence number.
