Mar 31, 2022: Pakistan’s captain and brilliant batsman Babar Azam re-entered the record books on Thursday when he became the fastest batsman in the world to complete his 15th ODI century.
Babar surpassed South Africa’s Hashim Amla in the shortest innings to score 15 ODI centuries by scoring a century in the second ODI against Australia in Lahore. The 27-year-old cricketer achieved this milestone in the 83rd innings of his ODI career. Amla scored 15 centuries in 86 innings.
No other batsman has scored 15 centuries in less than 100 innings. Virat Kohli is third on the list and has played 156 innings and completed 15 ODI centuries.
Earlier, in the first ODI of the three-match series, Babar had become the fastest Asian batter to reach the 4,000 ODI runs mark, he was only one inning short of levelling Hashim Amla’s record quickest to 4,000 runs in ODIs.
Babar had earlier scored his 14th century in the 81st inning, 13th in the 76th innings — both quickest for the respective sequence number.
