Babar Azam Sets A Great Record In Second Test Against Australia

In the second Test against Australia, Pakistan captain Babar Azam has set two big records to his name. Babar Azam played 196 runs off 425 balls. At the same time, he has become the highest-scoring captain in Test cricket in the fourth innings.

Azam made history on the fifth day of the second Test against Australia at the National Stadium in Karachi. Earlier, he became the highest-scoring Pakistani batsman in the fourth innings of the Test. He broke the record of veteran Younis Khan. Younis Khan played an unbeaten 171 against Sri Lanka in 2015.

The record for most runs scored as a captain in the fourth innings of a Test was held by Michael Orthton of England. Arthur played an unbeaten 185 against South Africa in 1995.

The right-handed batsman also holds the record for the longest innings as Pakistan’s captain in the fourth innings. Younis Khan also holds the record for the last 15 years. Younis Khan scored an unbeaten 107 as captain in the 2007 Test against India at Kolkata.

During his memorable innings, Babur Azam became the first Pakistani batsman to face 400 or more balls in the fourth innings of the Test. However, unfortunately, Babur Azam missed his double century for four runs. Nathan Lyon dismissed Babur Azam in the 160th over of the innings. The 27-year-old star batsman hit 196 off his 425-ball innings, including 21 fours and a six.

Usman Khwaja’s 160 and Alex Carey’s 93 helped Australia declare their first innings at 556 for nine. In response, the host Pakistan team was all-out for 148 runs. Skipper Babar Azam was the top scorer with 36 runs. However, Australia avoided following Pakistan and declared their innings at 97 for two. Khwaja scored 44, and Labuschne scored 44.

The target was 506 against Pakistan. However, the hosts batted well in the second innings, and Pakistan was 443 for seven when the match was drawn on the final day. Azam scored 196 and Mohammad Rizwan 104 not out.

While opener Abdullah Shafiq played an innings of 96 runs. The first two of the three Tests have been drawn. The third and final Test between the two teams will begin on March 21 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
