Babar Azam Breaks Record, Becomes Fastest to 10,000 T20 Runs

In a remarkable achievement, former Pakistan captain Babar Azam has etched his name in the history books by becoming the fastest batter to reach the milestone of 10,000 runs in the T20 format. This extraordinary feat was accomplished in a mere 271 innings, surpassing the previous record held by West Indies legend Chris Gayle, who took 285 innings to reach the same milestone. India's batting maestro Virat Kohli stands third on the list, having taken 299 innings to achieve this remarkable feat.

Babar's journey to this historic milestone was marked by consistency and brilliance. Playing for Peshawar Zalmi in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL), he needed just six runs to set the world record. With nerves of steel and unwavering focus, he successfully achieved this milestone during a match against Karachi Kings, while also leading his team as captain.

It is noteworthy that Babar narrowly missed reaching the milestone in the previous game against Quetta Gladiators, where he was dismissed for 68 runs. However, his determination and unwavering focus propelled him to become the 13th player overall to reach the coveted 10,000-run mark in the T20 format.

Babar's achievement is even more remarkable considering that he is still only 28 years old, with many more years of cricket ahead of him. His ability to score runs at a rapid pace, coupled with his consistency and adaptability, makes him one of the most exciting and dangerous batters in the world today.

Chris Gayle, the previous record holder, remains the leading run-scorer in T20 cricket, with an impressive tally of 14,562 runs. However, Babar's rapid ascent up the ranks suggests that he could potentially challenge Gayle's record in the years to come.

Babar's achievement is a testament to his hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment to the sport. It is a moment of pride for Pakistan cricket and a reminder of the immense talent that exists within the country.
