In the 7-match T20I series against England, Pakistan is leading 3-2 in the total of 5 matches played so far. Today is the sixth match of the series. The match will be played at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore today.
It is worth noting that in this latest series, Pakistan wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan has scored the most runs so far. In total 5 matches played, 315 runs have been scored from his bat. But, the bat of Pakistan captain Babar Azam was cold in the last match. In that match, he was able to score only 9 runs in 12 balls. Despite this, the sixth match of the series to be played today can prove to be a big one for Babar Azam, provided his bat speaks something today.
The history of international T20 cricket shows that in T20I cricket, Babar Azam (Captain Pakistan) needs 52 runs to touch the figure of 3 thousand runs. If his bat hits 52 today, he will become the fifth batsman in the world to touch or exceed the 3,000-run mark in T20I cricket. At present, only Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Martin Guptill and Paul Stirling are included in this special club. Virat Kohli touched this figure in 81 innings. Now today is a good opportunity for Pakistan captain Babar Azam.
Let us tell you that Babar Azam has so far batted in 80 innings of 85 T20I matches. In which a total of 2,948 runs have been scored with his bat. It is worth noting that PAK vs ENG T20I series is the second highest run-scorer in 5 matches played so far in 2022. In such a situation, today is an opportunity for Babar Azam to stand in front of Virat Kohli. But, if missed, they will miss this record forever.
