Babar Azam dedicates his milestone to ‘differently-abled’ people over the world


Pakistani batsman Babar Azam after scoring the title of the fastest player to reach 1,000 Twenty20 International runs, dedicated his win on Monday to the ‘differently-abled’ people all over the world.

In a celebratory tweet, the cricketer had expressed his delight at the news while dedicating the feat to all the differently-abled people in the country and across the globe.

“Another milestone achieved, another historic whitewash series win against a top-class side. Alhumdulillah, we’re a force to reckon with. This fastest to 1000 T20 runs is dedicated to all “differently able” people in Pakistan and across the world. #TheRealHeroes #PakistanZindabad,” read his tweet.

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.
