Srinagar: Pakistan is set to take on New Zealand in the T20 and ODI series at home and its skipper Babar Azam is on tbe brink of breaking multiple records.

Pakistan is going to play five T20Is and five ODI’s against Kiwis. With so many matches set to be played during the series, it is perfect setting for Babar Azam to break records.

Babar needs just one T20I victory against New Zealand to become the most successful T20I captain of all time, surpassing the record of retired Eoin Morgan, who has 42 wins as captain. He is currently tied at 40 wins each with Aaron Finch from Australia.

Babar will also be targeting to become the first Pakistan batter to reach 3,500 runs in T20I cricket. He needs just 145 runs to achieve this feat.

In ODIs, Babar Azam is inching closer to breaking several records held by South African legend Hashim Amla. 

Babar requires just one more century in the next seven innings to become the fastest batter to reach 18 ODI centuries. Amla currently holds the record, having achieved it in 102 innings, followed by Virat Kohli, who reached the same number of centuries in 119 innings.

If Babar scores 187 runs in the next seven innings, he will become the fastest batter to reach 5,000 runs in ODIs, surpassing Amla’s record of achieving this feat in 101 innings. Kohli and West Indian great Sir Vivian Richards both took 114 innings to score the same number of runs.

Babar Azam is also just 136 runs away from completing 12,000 runs in international cricket, having scored 3,696 runs in Tests, 4,813 in ODIs, and 3,355 in T20Is.
