It was a maiden World Cup hundred for Babar - his 10th overall in ODIs.
Babar Azam, brilliance. Wanted to make runs under pressure, he delivered, doesn't get tougher than chasing in a world cup fixture with your team fighting to stay alive in the competition. #CWC19 #NZvPAK #PAKvNZ— Brad Hogg (@Brad_Hogg) June 26, 2019
Special knock from @babarazam258 treat to watch a world class player showing his skills. @iHarisSohail knock was class too it was not an easy track.
