Babar Azam, Colombo Strikers’ all-format captain, has been putting on standout performances in the fourth Lanka Premier League (LPL).

At the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, the right-handed batter defeated the Galle Gladiators to win the tenth game of the competition.

The cricketer, who was born in Lahore, scored 104 runs in only 59 balls, including eight boundaries and five maximums, to help Colombo Strikers reach their 189-run goal.

His 10th century in T20 cricket puts him just behind the explosive former West Indian opener Chris Gayle.

Notably, the 28-year-old batsman defeated B-Love Kandy at the R. Premadasa Stadium last week and registered his first half-century in the Lanka Premier League.

After the game, Niroshan Dickwella gave the team advice in the locker room to observe Babar Azam to learn how to win even in difficult circumstances.

“Take notes from the top. He persisted in trying. On that wicket, batting was difficult, and he stuck around until the very end. We scored well in that inning,” according to Dickwella.

Currently, Babar Azam leads the tournament in runs scored with 211 runs scored in four innings at an average of 52.75 and a strike rate of 147.55.
