GALLE: Pakistan captain Babar Azam achieved another big milestone on Sunday as he broke Indian batsman Virat Kohli’s record to become the fastest Asian batsman to reach 10,000 runs in international cricket.

Babar raced to the milestone during Pakistan’s opening Test against Sri Lanka here at the Galle International Stadium. It took the number one ODI and T20I batter only 228 innings to score 10,000 runs as compared to Kohli’s 232 innings.

He also became the fastest Pakistani batter to complete 10,000 runs in international cricket, which was previously held by Javed Miandad, who achieved this target in 248 innings.

With the feat, the 27-year-old also became the 11th Pakistani batter to complete 10,000 runs in international cricket.
