Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s supremacy in the shortest format of the game continues as he equalled another record currently held by India’s Virat Kohli.

Babar Azam equalled Kohli’s record of the most 50-plus scores in the T20Is during the first Twenty20 against Ireland that is currently underway in Dublin, Ireland.

Babar Azam reached his fifty off just 39 balls that included seven fours and a six. It was the 35th half-century for Babar along with three centuries to his name.

Babar took just 108 innings in 115 matches to reach 38 50-plus scores in the T20i format while Kohli took 109 innings in 117 matches to score 38 50-plus scores. Kohli hit 37 half-centuries and one century.

With one less innings mean, Babar surpassed Kohli in this elusive list.
