Such a big name, yet the double century mark is incomplete… then the Pakistan captain came close


new Delhi: Pakistan team captain Babar Azam (Babar Azam) had a chance to score the first double century of his Test career during the ongoing match against New Zealand today. However, he once again missed reaching this point. He got out today without adding a single run to his yesterday’s score of 161.

Pakistan’s team got all out for 438 runs on the second day of Karachi Test today. Babar contributed 161 runs after facing maximum 280 balls. During this, 15 fours and one six came from his bat. 103 runs also came from the bat of Agha Salman. Sarfaraz Ahmed, who returned to Test cricket after a long time, also scored an important 86 runs.

If we look at Babar Azam’s Test career, he has scored nine centuries and 26 half-centuries in 46 matches, but he does not have a single double century in his name. His best score in this format is 196 runs. He made this in the Karachi Test against Australia this year. Today it was expected that Babar would give the best performance of his career but it could not happen. Today, during the ongoing Boxing-Day Test between South Africa and Australia, the opening batsman of the Kangaroo team, David Warner, scored the third double century of his career.
