Pakistan and Peshawar Zalmi skipper Babar Azam, has smashed his maiden Pakistan Super League (PSL) century in the ongoing season against the Quetta Gladiators tonight, at the Pindi Club Ground in Rawalpindi.

Opting to bat first on a batting paradise in Rawalpindi, the Peshawar opening batting pair of Babar and Saim Ayub (74 off 34) went hard on the Quetta bowlers right from the get-go, as the duo stitched together a partnership worth 162 runs off mere 13.3 Overs to lay a perfect foundation for a massive total.

Post Ayub’s dismissal, it was all about the Babar Azam show until he got Run Out in the final Over of the innings. The 28-year-old batted mere 60 deliveries, and with the help of 15 Fours and 3 Sixes, reached his three-figure mark for the first time in the league’s history during the 18th Over.

He finally returned back after scoring 115 individual runs off mere 65 deliveries, as Peshawar posted a massive total of 240/2 in their 20 Overs.
