Babar Azam is the second Pakistani batter to reach 8000 T20 runs. Today, he is leading by example and has scored a well-planned fifty. He has scored this huge number of runs at an average of 44, and he has six centuries and 67 fifties to his name.
Chris Gayle did it in 213 hits, while Virat Kohli got 8000 T20 runs in 243 hits.
Pakistan hasn’t lost a wicket yet in response to England’s 199/5, and both Mohammad Rizwan and Azam have done a great job with the bat.
England’s stand-in captain, Moeen Ali, made a quick fifty to help his team get to 199-5 against Pakistan in the second T20 international on Thursday in Karachi.
England won the toss and chose to bat first at the National Stadium. Moeen hit four sixes and as many fours in his 23-ball score of 55 not out.
England scored 119 runs in the last 10 overs. Ben Duckett (43 runs), Harry Brook (31 runs), and Alex Hales (30 runs) all added to the run-fest.
Moeen hit two huge sixes off pacer Mohammad Hasnain’s last two pitches of the innings.
