Babar Azam in action against Netherlands
Pakistan captain Babar Azmi Slammed his eighth fifty-plus score in nine innings as he helped his team beat the Netherlands in the second One Day International. Babar scored 57 off 65 balls as Pakistan chased down the Netherlands’ total of 186 runs with ease. Mohammad Rizwan (69) and Agha Salman (50) remained unbeaten as Pakistan took an unassailable lead in the series.
Babar is in the middle of a purple patch which has made him 4 centuries and 4 half-centuries in his last 9 innings. His only failure came in the third ODI against West Indies, where he was dismissed for 1.
He scored a fluent 74 in the first match of the Netherlands series and will hope that his 50-over form will materialize in the Asia Cup, which will be a T20 event.
Babar has the tough task of leading Pakistan to victory in the continental tournament, which sees them take on arch-rivals India on August 28 and potentially play twice more if the two teams progress in the summit clash.
Pakistan last won the Asia Cup in 2012 and would like to end their decade-long wait to win the continental tournament.
