Babar Azam, Pakistan’s all-format captain, has reclaimed his number one spot in the ICC T20I batter rankings following a stellar start to the 2021 T20 World Cup campaign. Babar has three half-centuries in the first four matches of the T20 World Cup and is currently the tournament’s third-highest run-scorer with 198 runs.
Babar surpassed England’s Dawid Malan, who took over as the number one batter late last year. While Babar has been on fire in recent weeks, Malan has been on fire for the past few months. He hasn’t scored much in England’s first four matches in the 2021 T20 World Cup.
Pakistan’s captain has been in fantastic form in recent years. He is already ranked as the world’s best ODI batter, and he has improved his Test numbers in recent series. In the game’s longest format, he is ranked seventh among batters.
Mohammad Rizwan, Babar’s opening partner, is currently ranked as the number four batter and is only two points behind the number three ranked Aaron Finch. If Rizwan maintains his excellent form in the upcoming matches, he will most likely replace Finch as the world’s third-best batter.
