In a face-saving game of the three-match ODI series against England, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam, who could not perform well in the previous two games, set new records in the third match at Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham.
Babar Azam has become the first Pakistani captain in 38 years to score an ODI century in England. Earlier, the same was done by Imran Khan in 1983 in Leeds.
Babar is also the first Pakistani captain to score 158 runs in England, an innings that brought joy to disappointed fans.
