Will Babar Azam Score His First PSL Century This Season?
Pakistan’s national team captain, Babar Azam, is eager to silence his critics and display his T20 batting prowess in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8. In the previous PSL 7, Babar had a disappointing run as the captain of the Karachi Kings, leading the team to their worst finish in PSL history with only one win in 10 group matches.
This time, Babar is hoping to turn things around as the leader of his new team, the Peshawar Zalmi, and bring the team their second PSL championship.
Babar is a T20 cricket superstar known for his consistent run-scoring abilities. Over the past few years, he has been one of the most reliable batsmen in the shortest format of the game, racking up over 8,500 runs with an impressive average of 43.61 in 235 innings played.
He has also hit 7 T20 centuries, including two unforgettable chases against England and South Africa in international matches. In PSL, Babar is the competition’s all-time leading run-scorer, yet he has yet to hit a century in the tournament. The upcoming season provides the perfect chance for him to achieve this milestone.
As the new face of Peshawar Zalmi, Babar will shoulder much of the batting unit’s responsibility. Based on his track record, it’s likely that he will finish the tournament as the highest run-scorer, possibly even with a PSL century to his name. Get ready to witness Babar’s batting brilliance in PSL season 8!
