Babar Azam Achieves 1,000 T20 Runs In 2024

Babar Azam achieves 1,000 T20 runs in 2024

In 2024, Babar Azam, the former national cricket team captain, achieved the milestone of scoring 1,000 runs in T20 matches.

During a game against Multan Sultans at Karachi’s National Stadium, Peshawar Zalmi won the toss and opted to bat. Early on, Saim Ayub (1) fell to David Willey in the opening over. Despite an unsuccessful review attempt against Babar Azam (8) in Willey’s second over, he continued to play confidently alongside Mohammad Haris, who showed improved form compared to previous matches.

Babar Azam and Haris put on a solid partnership, with Azam particularly aggressive during the powerplay, reaching 51 runs. However, Haris (22) eventually fell to Muhammad Ali. Spinner Usama Mir further tightened the pressure by dismissing Haseeb Khan (3), caught by Ali. Babar Azam reached his 1,000-run milestone in T20 cricket for the year when he was on 38 runs.

Following Tom Kohler-Cadmore’s dismissal, Babar Azam (46) continued his innings until he was bowled out by Chris Jordan. By then, he had amassed a total of 544 runs in the ongoing season.

Despite Babar Azam’s efforts, Multan Sultans emerged victorious by seven wickets, securing their spot in the PSL final once again.
