Babar Azam Australia vs Pakistan Test Series : Not even a month has passed since the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, but in the meantime so many changes have taken place in Pakistan cricket that it is becoming difficult to even count them. The Pakistani team is preparing to take the field for the first time after the World Cup. But the command of the team will no longer be in the hands of Babar Azam but in the hands of Shan Masood. Although Shan Masood can be considered a good batsman, but his real test will be now when he will take over the captaincy. Meanwhile, Babar Azam will take the field for the first time in an international match after leaving the captaincy. With this, they are close to reaching new heights which they can achieve.

Babar Azam can complete his 13 thousand international runs

Former Pakistan captain Babar Azam has so far scored 12,986 runs in international cricket. That means he now needs only 14 runs to complete 13 thousand runs. If he crosses this figure in the very first match, he will become the fifth player of Pakistan to score 13 thousand runs. Inzamam Ul Haq has scored the most runs for Pakistan in international cricket. He has 20,580 runs in his name. At second place is Younis Khan, who has 17,790 runs in his name. Mohammad Yusuf has scored 17,300 runs. Javed Miandad has 16,213 runs in his name. After this comes the name of Babar Azam.

Sachin Tendulkar is the batsman who has scored the most runs in the world.

Well, if seen overall, India’s Sachin Tendulkar has scored the maximum 34,357 runs in international cricket and Babar Azam comes at number 57 in this list. Meanwhile, three Tests will be played between Pakistan and Australia, the first match of which will be played in Perth from December 14. This series is very important for both Pakistan and Australia, because the matches will be played under the World Test Championship. Pakistani team is currently occupying the number one position. It remains to be seen whether Pakistan is successful in retaining this chair even after the Australia series.
