Pakistan’s cricket fraternity has paid tribute to star batsman Babar Azam after he was officially announced as the best batsman in the world in the 50-over format.

The right-hander achieved the feat after scoring 228 runs in the recently three-match ODI series against South Africa which helped him overtake India’s captain Virat Kohli in the ICC Rankings.

Following the announcement on Wednesday, former and current cricketers have paid homage to Babar for becoming only the fourth batsman from Pakistan to hold the top spot in the ICC ODI Rankings.
