Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam recently crossed the 5000 runs mark in ODI cricket. In the fourth ODI against New Zealand, Babar scored 107 runs off 117 balls. It was his 18th ODI century. Babar became the fastest batsman to score 5000 runs after this century. In an interview after the innings, he named four batsmen who are performing best at the moment.
Babar Azam likes four batsmen in the modern era. Interestingly, Indian legend Virat Kohli’s name is not among these four selected by Babar. Babar names Kane Williamson, Abdullah Shafiq, Joe Root and Jos Buttler among his four favorite batsmen of the modern era. Babar has not taken the name of Steve Smith from Fab Four along with Virat. Babar also said that it is a pleasure to see the selected four playing.

Dream of winning the ODI World Cup for Pakistan
After becoming the fastest to 5000 runs in ODI cricket, Babar’s next focus is to help Pakistan win the ODI World Cup. Babar has expressed this wish while talking to the ICC website. Babar said that as the captain of the team, he wants to win the ODI World Cup for Pakistan. Meanwhile, Pakistan won the ODI World Cup in 1992 under the leadership of Imran Khan. Since then, in the last thirty years, Pakistan has not been able to win the World Cup.
The fifth ODI match against New Zealand is special for Babar
Meanwhile, the fifth and final match of the Test series between Pakistan and New Zealand will be played on Sunday (May 7). This will be the 100th match of Babar’s ODI career. He played his ODI debut in 2015. It took Babar eight years to cross the 100-match mark. (Four batsmen Babar Azam likes in the modern era)
