The Pakistan cricket team captain is one more step closer to becoming the top-ranked batter in all three formats after crossing Australia’s Steve Smith into the top three Test rankings.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam has reached to his career-best Test ranking, over-crossing Australia’s Steve Smith to reach the top three in all three formats. What a record for Young Babar .
Babar, who is the top-ranked batter in T20 and one-day internationals, scored 119 and 55 in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle last week, which earned him enough rating points to pass Smith on 848.
At the age of 27 he is now just 11 points behind Marnus Labuschagne (885) in second, with former England captain Joe Root (923) still out in front following his dominant performances against New Zealand and India during the English summer.
Babar said last month during a press conference prior to the Pakistan and West Indies ODI series.”As a player it’s a dream to become the No.1 in all formats and, for that, you have to focus and put in hard work,”.
