Meanwhile, Babar Azam inches closer to Kohli’s overall T20I run record, currently standing at 3,698 runs. With a mere 340 runs needed in the next five matches, Azam eyes the coveted title of the highest run-scorer in T20I cricket and aims to join the elite 4000-run club.

The comprehensive victory for Pakistan was fueled by a stellar bowling display followed by Rizwan’s composed innings, leading the team to a resounding seven-wicket triumph over New Zealand in the second T20I clash at the iconic Pindi Cricket Stadium.

As the cricketing world awaits further fireworks from these talented batters, Rizwan’s meteoric rise continues to redefine the landscape of T20I cricket.
