Batsman made most runs by a Pakistani in single campaign
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) celebrated the one-year anniversary of Babar Azam’s historic knock against Bangladesh when he made 96 off 98 deliveries to cross Javed Miandad’s record tally of 437 runs in a World Cup campaign.
Babar Azam made 474 runs at the 2019 World Cup at an average of 67.71 and a strike-rate of 87.77. However, Pakistan were unable to get into the knockout stages as they never truly recovered from a horror start despite a strong late run that included the emphatic win over Bangladesh.
Miandad’s 437 had come at the 1992 World Cup when Pakistan won the World Cup.
