Pakistan skipper Babaz Azam added another two feathers to his cap with his brilliant performance in an ODI match against Australia.

On Thursday, Pakistan hit back with a vengeance when they recorded their highest successful ODI run-chase to defeat Australia by six wickets to level the three-match ODI series as the first match was won by the guests at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Opener Imam-ul-Haq scored his second successive century of the series, first Pakistan batter to achieve this feat against Australia, and world No.1 Babar reached the magical three figures for the 15th time in 50-over cricket as Pakistan raced to the 349-run target with six balls to spare.

With his powerful batting, Babar Azam has become the fastest Asian to score 4,000 runs.

Furthermore, the 27-year-old batter has broken the record of former captain and PM Imran Khan by making highest score as team captain against Australia.

Previously, Khan had made 84 runs against Australia in 1990 and it was the highest score by any Pakistani player until it was surpassed by Babar Azam.

Azam also become the first Pakistani skipper to smash four centuries in ODI matches as earlier Azhar Ali was on the top to the table with three tons.
