Babar Azam made PSL history by making 3000 runs

Peshawar Zalmi captain Babar Azam made history by scoring a giant 3000 runs in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 9 season. He also recorded his 29th half-century in a thrilling run chase, scoring 68 runs off 42 runs, including four sixes and four fours.

Babar has joined an elite group in PSL history, an incredible achievement that shows his consistency and passion for high scores. His average had never been less than 38, except for the 2016 season of PSL. He only appeared in two innings of that season.

Peshawar Zalmi won the toss and chose to play first against the Quetta Gladiators, during which Babar Azam made PSL history. However, the bowling of Peshawar Zalmi was also uncertain and unpredictable throughout the first innings. Gladiator batters Jason Ray and Saud Shakeel puzzled bowlers all over the match innings.

The Gladiators made a giant total of 206-5, with Saud Shakeel scoring 74 and Jason Roy scoring 75 runs. Saud was chosen man of the match after scoring his first half-century in the PSL on debut.

Apart from Saim Ayub and Babar Azam, Peshawar’s middle-order collapsed after the two openers were gone. Peshwar batters could not stand spin magician bowling by Abrar Ahmed and Muhammad Amir after openers Saim Ayub and Babar Azam.

As a result, Peshawar Zalmi made only 190 runs at the cost of six wickets and lost to Quetta Gladiators. Gladiators won by a margin of sixteen runs.

Quetta Gladiators will face last season’s winner, Lahore Qalandars, tonight at 7:00 p.m. This match will held at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. But Lahore weather appears to be rainy, so there is the possibility to postpone this match.

Quetta Gladiators have won the PSL championship title in 2019. They were runners-up in the 2016 and 2017 seasons of PSL. However, Lahore Qalandars have won the PSL championship twice, once in 2016 and another in 2022.
