PSL 2023: Babar Azam Score his First PSL Century, Breaks Records

Babar Azam has accomplished one of his objectives for the year after reaching his first PSL century on Wednesday in Rawalpindi against Quetta Gladiators.

The Zalmi captain smacked 15 fours and three sixes in 60 balls to reach the milestone.

Babar continued to contribute, eventually scoring 115 runs off 65 balls to assist his team reach a massive total of 240/2.

Babar also made history by being the first player to ever knock 15 fours in a single PSL inning. Nevertheless, an hour later in the same game, Jason Roy shattered this mark by smashing 20 fours in his record-breaking undefeated 145-run innings.

Azam stated that he hopes to hit his first PSL century and believes his new franchise side, Peshawar Zalmi, would win the PSL this year in an interview with Cricket Pakistan immediately before the start of the PSL season 8. He added that his ultimate goal is for India to win the 2023 World Cup.

“I have a lot to do, but my main objective is to lead Peshawar Zalmi to the PSL championship this year by scoring my first PSL century. I also want to win the ICC World Cup 2023, which is being held this year in India, and I want my nation to be recognized as the victor”  Babar stated.

After winning the toss, Babar gave Zalmi an excellent start by forming a record partnership of 162 runs with Saim Ayub.

The most by any Pakistani batsman in T20s is Babar’s 36th-century partnership. Rizwan, a Pakistani with 26-century stands, is the next player on the list.

Just three players—Chris Gayle (46), David Warner (42), and Virat Kohli (38)—have more century partnerships than Babar.

Babar is the batsman in the world with the most T20 hundreds (eight) since 2019. Jos Buttler is in second with six centuries.
