Pakistan’s limited-overs captain Babar Azam on Wednesday scored a sensation ton in the ongoing T20 Blast to take his side, Somerset, to a convincing 66-run victory over Glamorgan.
Azam, who was struggling to find the middle in the ongoing season, broke the shekels and notched up his career-best 114 not out from only 62 balls, helping his team post 183/3 in 20 overs.
The score was enough for them to register their third win the campaign, and give them an outside chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.
The 25-year-old was dropped twice during his breathtaking innings.
The right-hander reached his hundred in the 19th over, with his second fifty taking just 23 deliveries. His innings included nine fours and five sixes.
In reply, Glamorgan were dismissed for 117 in the 16th over. For his brilliant innings, Babar Azam was declared player of the match.
