Pakistan skipper Babar Azam on Tuesday broke another record of his Indian counterpart, Virat Kohli, as he smashed a half-century against Namibia in the T20 World Cup at Abu Dhabi.

Babar has become the only captain to score 14 half-centuries, leaving behind Kohli, who has scored 13 half centuries in T20 Internationals. It took him only 27 innings to reach the milestone, while Kohli has scored 13 half-centuries in 44 innings.

The skipper smashed 70 runs off 49 balls, including seven fours, during the match against Namibia.

FASTEST TO 1,000: Babar had also become the captain to score 1,000 runs in least innings — a record earlier held by Kohli. Azam achieved the milestone during the match against Afghanistan.

He scored his first 1,000 T20I runs in 26 innings as skipper of the Pakistan cricket team.

Kohli, as captain of the Indian cricket team, took 30 innings to score 1,000 T20I runs.
