Let’s take a look at the performance of Kohli, Rohit, and Babar:
- Babar Azam broke Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s T20 record by scoring an unbeaten 79 in the second game of the T20 series against New Zealand.
- The Pakistani captain completed his 28th half-century in T20 cricket to join Virat Kohli in the same seat. Both batsmen accomplished this feat in the 84th inning. This is Babar Azam’s twelfth half-century in a chase.
- Babar Azam scored 12 half-centuries as the fourth batter while chasing runs. In this regard, he touches on the achievements of Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli holds the record for the most half-centuries while chasing this run. Australian David Warner is in second place.
- However, Babar Azam lags behind Virat Kohli in one respect. The Pakistani captain scored 12 half-centuries in 11 games chasing points. In that regard, he is in second place with David Warner. Kohli is way ahead of the two. Kohli scored 15 half-centuries in the chase. And India won all the matches.
Pakistan is now playing a tri-series in New Zealand. Kohli for Babar Azam, a chance to overthrow Rohit. But the battle to overtake each other at the World Cup will be great, that’s for sure.
