Pakistan captain Babar Azam has scored 1000 Test runs in the current calendar year, a personal record on the 22-yard line. Babar achieved this feat in the recently concluded third Test match against England at the National Bank Arena in Karachi.
Thus, Azam turned into the fourth hitter to arrive at the achievement in 2022 and the first Pakistani player to do as such in quite a while. This feat was accomplished by Pakistan's captain when he reached 45 in the second innings. In the end, he was let go for 54.
By scoring fifty in both innings of the Karachi Test, Azam, 28, demonstrated consistency. Before an unexpected run out ended his time at the plate, he had scored 78 runs in the first inning.
Joe Root (english), Usman Khawaja (asian), and Jonny Bairstow (english) are among the others on this remarkable list. With 1079 runs from the same number of games, Khawaja is second, and Bairstow is third, with 1061 runs from 10 Tests.
Root is in the lead position subsequent to scoring 1098 runs in 15 Test matches this year. Babar Azam, who has scored 1009 runs in eight red-ball matches to reach the fourth spot on this list, will have one more chance to surpass Root when Pakistan and New Zealand play in the first Test match on December 26 in Karachi.
