Yes, we are talking about the cricketing records. While the match does break all the broadcasting records all the time, it is time for some change on the scorecard. Babar, Virat, and Rohit may break some records set by their veteran batsmen over the years. In this article, we will tell you about some of those records.
Babar Azam entered the Asia Cup with a bang. He scored 151 runs against the Nepali bowlers, scoring his 19th ODI ton in the process. Now, he has become the second-highest in scoring ODI hundreds for Pakistan. The one above him is Saeed Anwar, who has scored 20 tons in his career.

Babar will become Pakistan’s joint-highest 100 scorer in ODIs if he scores a ton here. He will also become the fastest to score 20 ODI centuries, breaking Hashim Amla’s record.
Babar is only six runs shy of breaking Virat’s record of becoming the fastest captain to score 2,000 runs in ODIs.
Virat Kohli, India’s star batter, is nearing a milestone in ODIs. He is just 102 runs shy from scoring 13,000 runs and becoming the second Indian to achieve this feat.
Rohit Sharma may also surpass the 10k run mark. He only needs 163 runs to do that. So, if he manages to core these runs against Pakistan, he will score 10000 runs in ODI cricket.
