In the Lanka Premier League (LPL) on Monday, Pakistan captain Babar Azam accomplished a remarkable achievement by reaching his tenth century in the T20 format of the game, passing West Indian legend Chris Gayle as the second player in history to do so.

The record-holder for the greatest individual score (175* vs. Pune Warriors, IPL 2013) is “Universe Boss” Gayle, who also owns the record for the most tons (22 tons in 463 games).

The Pakistan captain got three T20 hundreds at the international level in the Vitality Blast and National T20 Cup, playing for Somerset and Central Punjab, respectively.

Additionally, he scored 100 runs for Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and another one against Leicestershire during a tour game.

With his first triple-digit score in the LPL, Babar increased his total of T20 centuries to 10 and earned the distinction of being the fourth centurion in the tournament’s history.

Additionally, the 28-year-old cricket superstar is currently the first Asian player to reach 10 T20 hundreds.

Former Indian captain Virat Kohli is the second Asian to have scored the most T20 hundreds after Babar With eight tons.
