The ICC complimented the star batter by stating that “Babar Azam once again showed his prowess in the 50-over format, displaying once again why he has ruled the roost at the top of the ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings since July 2021.”

According to the ICC’s press release, Babar’s year as the captain of the Pakistan ODI team was particularly noteworthy because his team won all three series. In the ODI format, Pakistan was unbeatable, only losing one game (against Australia) out of nine.
