Pakistan National Cricket Team skipper has been in extraordinary form lately. In the recently concluded three-match ODI series against the Netherlands, he smashed three back-to-back half-centuries. Overall, in his last 10 ODI innings, he has registered 50+ scores 9 times. Babar Azam in his last 10 ODI innings has registered scores of – 158(139), 57(72), 114(83), 105*(115), 103(107), 77(93), 1(3), 74(85), 57(65) and 91(125).
