Babar Azam birthday and early life

Babar was born on October 15, 1994, in Lahore, and spent his childhood exploring Lahore’s streets and playing cricket all the time. Babar was passionate about cricket since his childhood, which was further nurtured by a supportive environment.

Like in every other story, his parents first forbade him from playing cricket as it was affecting his academic progress. But, after seeing his son’s determination, his father permitted him to attend an academy. That’s when the process of becoming a superstar began.

Why did Babar choose cricket as a profession?

Babar hails from a cricketing family. The Akmal brothers, his three elder cousins, have represented Pakistan at the highest level. Babar grew up seeing them represent Pakistan and resolved to pursue cricket as a career.

He had a lifelong passion for cricket. When he was young, he would request that his father accompany him to every domestic and international cricket match held at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. When the opportunity arrived, he became a ball picker at Gaddafi Stadium during South Africa’s 2005-06 tour of Pakistan.

Babar was always a talented batter. But, he learned game awareness and innings building after game exposure. His dedication to improving his game with each passing day, combined with consistent instruction from his coach Rana Sadiq, helped him advance through the U-13, U-16, and U-19 levels and earned him his national debut.

Babar would have been 16 years old when he got the opportunity to represent Pakistan in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup in 2009-2010. Babar had a successful run in the World Cup. He struck a century on debut against West Indies. He scored 129 from 132 balls before being dismissed by an unfortunate run-out.

In the second match, he scored an undefeated 40 against Papua New Guinea U19, then a 91 against Bangladesh U19, followed by a 6, 4, and 28 against India, West Indies, and Australia, respectively.

Babar got to represent Pakistan in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup again in 2012. The tournament did wonders for his confidence. During the tournament, he scored a spectacular century and two fifties, one of which came against India. Despite being eliminated in the semi-finals by the West Indies, Pakistan found a potential star in Babar.

Overall, Babar played 36 Under 19 matches, including 12 U-19 World Cup games, scoring three hundred and eight fifties against the West Indies, Scotland, and Sri Lanka. However, Babar had previously scored his first U-19 century in a match against Sri Lanka in 2009.

His U-19 tons are listed below:

Babar Azam ODI and T20I debut

Babar Azam’s name echoed amongst the cricket fraternity when international cricket returned to Pakistan in 2015 after a 6-year hiatus. Babar was included in Pakistan’s ODI squad that faced Zimbabwe in Lahore due to his impressive domestic performances.

Babar struck a fifty on his ODI debut at his home venue, the Gaddafi stadium, where he once worked as a ball picker 10 years ago.

An impressive ODI debut ensured his Twenty20 international debut the next year against England.

Babar Azam centuries list

Babar Azam is the current ICC No. 1 ODI batsman and has 26 international centuries across all formats. Babar has won many matches for Pakistan with his responsible batting and has gradually become the backbone of Pakistan’s batting lineup. The match-winning century against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup and two back-to-back hundreds against Australia in the home series this year are a few examples.

Babar Azam ODI centuries

Babar made his ODI debut in May 2015 but took another year to score his maiden ODI century. After just seven years of his career, Babar is second on the list of Pakistani cricketers with centuries in ODI cricket.

His first ODI century came against West Indies in 2016 against West Indies. Babar also received his first man of the match award in the same game.

Three centuries in a row

“One brings two” is a common cricketing term. However, Babar’s maiden ODI century brought three on the trot.

Yes, the right-handed batter went on to score centuries in all three ODIs against West Indies and became only the third Pakistani to do so after Zaheer Abbas and Saeed Anwar. He is the eighth batter in history to score three straight ODI tons. Only former Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara has more back-to-back ODI tons (four).

Babar scored 120, 123, and 117 in the series, amassing 360 runs in three matches to break Javed Miandad’s record for most runs scored in a three-match ODI series.

Babar repeated his mastery when he scored three back-to-back hundreds (two against Australia and one against West Indies) earlier this year.

A century versus Australia

Babar was part of the relatively young squad that traveled to Australia in 2017. Pakistan lost the one-day international series 4-1, but Babar became only the second Pakistani to score a century in Australia after Zaheer Abbas in 1981. Babar’s 109-ball century in Adelaide featured seven fours and a six.

A century against West Indies

Babar Azam, Pakistan’s rising star, hit another century in the first ODI against the West Indies during the country’s mid-2017 tour. Babar remained undefeated on 125 from 132 balls.

A century against Sri Lanka

Pakistan toured Sri Lanka in September 2017, following the Champions Trophy triumph. There, Babar struck his seventh ODI century and became the fastest batsman to reach seven ODI centuries.

Match-winning century against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup

The World Cup is an extremely important tournament for youngsters. Babar, who was appearing in his first World Cup felt the same pressure. He could not perform in the first two matches. However, in a crunch game against New Zealand, Babar scored his 10th ODI century, scoring 101 out of 127, and helped Pakistan win the match.

Babar scored 474 runs in the World Cup 2019, breaking Javed Miandad’s 27-year-old record for most runs by a Pakistani batter in an ODI World Cup.
