As he extended his domination at the top of the ICC T20I rankings, Pakistan captain Babar Azam resumed his tryst with breaking global records by surpassing former India captain Virat Kohli to inscribe his name in history for a record world record in T20I cricket.

Having held the top spot on the ICC T20I list for the longest time, Babar currently holds the record. He has now completed 1030 days as of Wednesday, June 29. Kohli, who had ruled the rankings table for 1013 days during the previous ten years, owned the previous record.

According to the ICC rankings, Babar is now ranked first in white-ball cricket and aspires to become the top player in test cricket as well.

The goal of every player is to be ranked first in all competitions, but this requires dedication and effort. Babar had stated earlier in the month that “It’s not like you take it easy because you’re the best in one of two forms”. “You must keep yourself in shape and on schedule if you want to win all three.” Cricket is played back-to-back, so the pause is less. You need to be very fit for it.

It’s something I’m getting ready for. The white ball is going well, and perhaps I can continue that success in Test matches as well. Ishan Kishan, the opening batsman for India, dropped one spot to the seventh position on the list of batters on the ICC rankings table, which was announced on Wednesday.
