Skipper Babar Azam on Saturday became the highest T20I scorer from Pakistan, moving past Mohammad Hafeez who has scored 2,514 runs from 108 innings.

The Pakistani skipper who has been in sublime form this year has scored 2,515 runs from just 64 innings.

Babar could only score 1 run in the second T20I match against Bangladesh but that was enough to make him the highest T20I scorer from Pakistan.

The No 1 T20I batter achieved the milestone with an average of 47.43 and a strike rate of 129.78. He has scored one century and 24 half-centuries.

In the ongoing calendar year, he has scored 834 runs in 22 innings.
