National cricket team captain Babar Azam has continued to set new records every day as the 27-year-old set a record for the most runs scored by Pakistan in International T20 cricket by scoring a run during a match against Bangladesh.
Babar Azam has scored 2515 runs at an average of 47 in 68 International T20 matches, including one century and 24 half-centuries. Muhammad Hafeez is the second-highest run-scorer for Pakistan in T20 Internationals. He has scored 2514 runs at an average of 26 in 119 matches, including 14 centuries.
Earlier, in a video shared on social media by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Azam said that in every match, every player showed responsibility and this is what a captain expects from his team.
He told the team players that the unity the team has developed should not be broken. The current unity [in the team] has been created with a lot of hurdles, he said, adding that this single defeat should not be allowed to break this unity.
He said everyone has put in a lot of effort by also maintaining the atmosphere of a family and no one tried to withdraw their support for others. “Every teammate played their part in every match. This same spirit is required of the team. You do not cease making efforts. Creating results is not in our hands. We will get results if we continue giving our best efforts,” he said.
