LAHORE – Pakistani skipper and world number one ODI batter Babar Azam has added another feather to his cap as the 27-year-old became the fastest Asian to score 4,000 ODI runs.

The right-handed batsman reached this milestone during the first One Day International against Aussies in the Punjab capital.

Babar, who amassed the milestone in 82 innings, fell one short of former Proteas star Hashim Amla’s 81.

With the latest feat, the star batsman becomes the 15th player from Pakistan to score 4,000 runs in ODIs while he is the first-ever Pakistani to complete 4,000 ODI runs in less than 100 innings.

Pakistani captain, known as ‘cover drive king’ joined elite clubs legends who achieved this feat as it took only 14 innings for Babar to turn jump from 3,000s to 4,000s runs. Earlier, Cricketer turned coach Mohammad Yousuf took 110 innings to reach this milestone.
