Babar Azam Becomes The Youngest Batter to Complete 8,000 T20 Runs

Babar Azam hit an unbeaten 110 off 66 balls against England in the second game of the T20 series. The batsman had scored 68 runs in six innings in the Asia Cup, with a top score of 30 against Sri Lanka. Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by seven wickets to level the series at 1-1.

He also became the first Pakistani to hit a second century in T20 cricket and the highest-ever chase without losing a wicket.

He completed the feat in nine years and 295 days after starting his career at the age of 20.
