Sirf Allah se hota hai
Allah k ghair se nahi hota.
Count this as 1156th day of the reign of Kaptaan @babarazam258. Kaptaan or me alag nahi hain. The King remains the King. Hum sab aik hain.

Pakistan captain Babar, who is currently ranked below Rizwan at the number 2 spot, had held the top place for 1,155 days of his career.
However, his long reign came to an end following an ordinary run of results at the Asia Cup.
