a day, a month; India-Pakistan cricket fans got a memorable gift, know how?


Highlights

Babar Azam scored a century in the second T20 against England
The wish of the cricket fans of India-Pakistan has come true
Fans forgot the pain of not winning the Asia Cup-2022

New Delhi. Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s bat remained completely silent in the Asia Cup. He scored only 63 runs in 6 matches. Babur had to face a lot of criticism for this. In the first T20 against England too, he could not convert a good start into a big innings and was dismissed for 31 runs in 24 balls. As a result, Pakistan had to face defeat. But, in the second T20, this batsman took all the effort and proved why he is considered among the most powerful batsmen of all three formats in the current era.

Babar returned to such a form that not only did he score a second century in T20, but also created history. In the second T20 against England, he along with his opening partner Mohammad Rizwan, achieved the target of 200 runs in 3 balls without losing a wicket. This is a world record. Babar remained unbeaten on 110 off 66 balls. At the same time, Rizwan scored an unbeaten 88 in 51 balls. During this innings, Babar completed his century in just 62 balls. With this, Pakistan defeated England in the second T20 to level the series.

Babar’s connection with Virat to return to form
In terms of Pakistan’s victory, this match has been important. More than that, the fans of Pakistan are happy to return to Babar Azam’s form. If we say that Babar’s return to form has a connection with Virat Kohli, then once again you will also be surprised. But, it is so. Let me tell you how it is. Actually, Virat Kohli’s bat was also silent for a long time. But, the Asia Cup was special for him. He scored an unbeaten 122 off 61 balls in India’s last match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup. In this innings, Virat hit 12 fours and 6 sixes. His innings came on the second Thursday of September. This was his 71st century in international cricket. For this he had to wait for 1020 days.

Thursday of September proved crucial
At the same time, Babar’s comeback happened on 22 September. It was the fourth Thursday of this month. That is, both made a comeback for a month and on the same day i.e. on Thursday and gave the biggest gift to the fans of India-Pakistan.

Babar left Virat behind
Babar has left behind Virat Kohli with an innings of 110 runs. He has become the second batsman to score the fastest 8000 runs in T20 in terms of innings. He achieved this position in 218 innings while Virat completed his 8 thousand runs in T20 in 243 innings. Chris Gayle is at number one in this list. He had crossed the 8,000-run mark in T20 in just 213 innings.
