Babar Azam to Surpass Kohli and Rohit as Highest Scorer in T20Is

In the realm of T20I cricket, Pakistan’s white-ball skipper, Babar Azam, currently holds the third position among the highest run-scorers, eyeing the top spot on the leaderboard.

Babar’s tally stands at 3,698 runs, with Indian maestro Virat Kohli occupying the pinnacle with an impressive 4,037 runs. Closing the gap, Babar needs 339 runs to match Kohli’s remarkable record, presenting a promising opportunity during the upcoming five-match series against New Zealand on home turf.

While Kohli leads with 109 innings in T20I cricket, Babar has showcased his batting prowess in 103 innings. His consistent run-scoring ability in the shortest format positions him favorably to challenge the Indian batting legend.

Following Kohli and Babar on the list is India’s Rohit Sharma, boasting 3,974 runs. Other notable names include New Zealand’s Martin Guptill and Irish opener Paul Stirling.

As the Kiwi squad arrives in Islamabad, Pakistan’s T20I team gathers in the capital after the Eid-ul-Fitr break, gearing up for multiple challenges en route to the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup. The team faces a rigorous schedule with twelve T20Is lined up—five against New Zealand (at home), three against Ireland (away), and four against England (away)—before embarking on the journey to the prestigious T20 mega-event in June.

Amidst preparations, one pressing question revolves around the opening pair. With Babar’s recent (re)appointment as the white-ball captain, there’s speculation about his preferred batting position, especially considering his inclination away from batting at one-down.

Given the evolving nature of T20 cricket, teams are increasingly focused on capitalizing on the powerplay overs to establish dominance, making the opening partnership a crucial aspect of strategic planning.
