KARACHI: Pakistan skipper Babar Azam snatched a T20I record from the former captain of the national team, Sarfaraz Ahmed, after leading his side to victory over England here at the National Stadium Karachi.

Babar and Mohammad Rizwan led Pakistan to a historic victory against England, as the two batters played a 203-run partnership to chase down the 200-run target set by the touring party on Thursday.

With the win, Babar managed to get success in 30  matches out of 49 played, surpassing Sarfaraz to become the skipper with the most wins in T20I cricket.

Under the wicket-keeper batter's captaincy, Pakistan played 37 matches in which he got success in 29 of them.

It is worth mentioning here that Babar also completed his 8000 T20 runs during the clash against England. 

Meanwhile, the Green Shirts' opening duo Babar and Rizwan overtook Indian batters Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan to become the most successful pair in the shortest format of the game.

The Indian duo had amassed 1743 runs over the course of 52 innings as batting partners, but Pakistan's Babar and Rizwan overtook them in the 36th inning of the second T20I against England.

Pakistan is scheduled to take on England in the third T20I here at the National Stadium Karachi on Friday (today) at 07:30 PM (PST).
