This year for Babar Azam has been splendid as he had some wondrous feats and he also racked up his highest ODI score. This happened in July when Pakistan toured England for a three-match ODI and T20I series.

After being put to bat in the third ODI, Babar Azam, who was captaining the side, came to bat at number three and as usual, took some time to settle according to the pitch. After battling for 14 deliveries, he scored his first run by hitting a boundary.

He sedately gathered run by run and got to his fifty in 72 deliveries. After that, he shifted his gears and scored his second century of the year in 104 balls. Babar then swiftly accelerated and got to his first 150 and got out at 158 runs in 139 balls and this was his highest ODI score ever.
