Babar Azam last 10 innings T20I: The Pakistani captain was their first batter to get out at the Gaddafi Stadium tonight.

During the fifth T20I of England’s tour of Pakistan 2022 in Lahore, Pakistan captain Babar Azam became the first batter to get out to unintentionally initiate a batting collapse of sorts.

Opening the batting with wicket-keeper batter Mohammad Rizwan (63), Azam ended up scoring 9 (12) at a strike rate of 75. It was on the penultimate delivery of the third over when Azam was dismissed by England fast bowler Mark Wood.

Bowling only his first over of the match, Wood managed to dismiss Azam for the second time in the series (both for single-digit scores). Wanting to pull a 150 kmph Wood delivery, all Azam could do was hit the ball straight to Ben Duckett at deep square leg.

Azam, who has scored a century in this series, hasn’t been able to keep up the same tempo in the innings before and after that knock. As a result, Azam’s last 10 T20I innings have seen him scoring 252 runs at an average and strike rate of 28 and 132.93 respectively. The last when Azam had scored a half-century was during a solitary T20I against Australia earlier this year.

With ICC T20 World Cup 2022 to be played next month, Azam would ideally want to contribute much more than these aforementioned numbers. With Pakistan relying heavily on their top-order, it is imperative for Azam to play according to his potential.
