Meanwhile, Babar Azam is one of the most consistent batsmen in the shortest format of the game. Azam is currently placed at second place in the ICC T20I rankings and he has done a fine job for Pakistan in the 20-overs format. The right-hander has been in sublime form as he recently scored 210 runs in the four T20I matches against South Africa at an impressive average of 52.50 and a strike rate of 143.83.

Babar Azam scored 52 runs from 46 balls with the help of five fours in the deciding T20I against Zimbabwe after winning the toss and opting to bat first. Pakistan had won the first T20I by 11 runs but Zimbabwe bounced back in style to stun the visitors by 19 runs in the second game.

Pakistan has posted a score of 165 runs on the board after their wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan scored an unbeaten knock of 91 runs from 60 balls with the help of five fours and three sixes.
