Star Pakistan batsman Babar Azam has officially dethroned Virat Kohli to become the top rated ODI batsman on 14th April 2021. Babar did what players like Rohit Sharma, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith, David Warner could not do – topple Virat Kohli and end his reign at the top of the charts for 41 months. Babar Azam’s ascension to the top should not come as a surprise given his continuous rise as a master batsman and his ever increasing reputation around the world.
The official news broke in the morning and the internet went crazy over the news. To put cherry on top, later in the day, he smashed 122 in the 3rd T20I against SA in Centurion to chase down 203, Pakistan’s highest ever chase in the format, and go up 2-1 in the 4 match series. This was also his first century in T20I and third Pakistan batsman to have hit a 100 in all three formats of the game.
It will be interesting to see for how long Babar can sustain the top place as Virat Kohli will be eager to take his spot back this year.
