DUBAI: Pakistani batsman Babar Azam, who became the quickest batsman to reach 1,000 Twenty20 runs on Sunday, has dedicated his achievement to differently-abled people in Pakistan and across the world.
Azam took to Twitter to expressing his delight for achieving this “milestone.”
“Another milestone achieved, another historic whitewash series win against a top-class side. Alhumdulillah, we’re a force to reckon with,” he said in his tweet.
“This fastest to 1000 T20 runs is dedicated to all “differently able” people in Pakistan and across the world.”
The 24-year-old — ranked number one in Twenty20s — hit a punishing 58-ball 79 with seven boundaries and two sixes as Pakistan whitewashed New Zealand 3-0 with a comfortable 47-run win in the third and final match in Dubai on Sunday.
Achieving the milestone in 26 innings, Azam has now taken over the record of star Indian batsman Virat Kohli, who had scored 1,000 runs in 27 T20 innings.
