Babar Azam breaks Kohli’s record of most runs in T20I format
DALLAS: (Suno News) Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has added another feather in his cap as he broke the record of India’s Virat Kohli by scoring the most runs in the T20I format.

As per details, India’s Virat Kohli was in the first position with 4038 runs in 110 innings in the T20I format, and Babar Azam broke this record in 113 innings during Pakistan’s campaign opener against the United States (US).

However, Pakistan could not win their campaign opener against the US as the latter beat the Green Shirts in a Super Over in Dallas on Thursday to achieve one of the biggest upsets in Twenty20 World Cup history and secure their second win of the tournament.

Pakistan, the 2009 champions, recovered from a poor start to score 159-7 but the US plundered 14 runs from their final over to finish on 159-3 and send the match to a Super Over.

The tournament co-hosts made 18-1, helped by two wides from Pakistan, before restricting their opponents to 13-1 to seal a famous victory.

"It’s a big achievement beating Pakistan and playing for the first time," US captain and player of the match Monank Patel said.

"The way we played today I’m really proud of the boys and it was a complete team effort from ball one to the last ball."

Pakistan captain Babar Azam bemoaned his side’s batting performance.

"We didn’t capitalise with the bat and they took a lot of momentum. Credit to USA, they performed so well today. They were better than us in all aspects of the game," Babar said.
