Babar Azam becomes most successful captain in T20I history after Pakistan win second T20I vs Ireland

Babar Azam scripted a world record on Sunday, May 12 becoming the most successful captain in T20 internationals after Pakistan defeated Ireland to level the three-match T20 series 1-1. The 7-wicket win on Sunday in Dublin was Babar’s 45th win as a captain in international T20s for Pakistan, which is the most for any skipper in the format as he surpassed England’s Eoin Morgan and Uganda’s Brian Masaba to achieve the record.

Babar had 42 wins as T20I captain before he was reinstated in the role in white-ball cricket for Pakistan. The two wins at home against New Zealand and now the triumph in the second T20I has helped Babar to reach the top and with the England series and T20 World Cup to come in the next one and a half months or so, the Pakistan skipper can extend his lead with Masaba and India’s Rohit Sharma being the only close competitors.
