The 27-year-old is recognized as one of the best batters in the history of cricket, and his most recent accomplishments undoubtedly support this assertion. Babar scored 3,000 runs in in 73 Test innings, making him the sixth-fastest Pakistani hitter in history.
Javed Miandad, a former captain, and Mohammad Yousuf, a brilliant middle-order batsman, share the record for scoring 3,000 Test runs for Pakistan in the fewest number of innings (67).

Saeed Anwar, who scored 3,000 runs in in 68 innings, is third on the list. The next two players on the list, Younis Khan and Majid Khan, required 70 and 72 innings, respectively, to attain the milestone.
Babar, who is presently the world’s fourth-best Test batter, is in excellent form. He helped Pakistan escape a grave situation with a brilliant century in the first innings, and he is now closing in on a half-century as Pakistan attempts to chase down the mark.
The flashy batsman has an incredible Test cricket track record. In 73 innings, he has so far amassed 3,016 runs at an average of 47.87.
