Babar Azam Displaced as Number 1 T20I Batter

Babar Azam’s lengthy reign as the most successful T20I player worldwide has been ended with the cricketer who is a close friend, Mohammad Rizwan, has been appointed to replace him.

Rizwan’s impressive run of form during the 2022 Asia Cup has seen him rise into the top spot of the T20I rankings. Rizwan has already scored two outstanding half-centuries at the event and also a match-winning knock against the arch-rivals India at the Super Fours game.
