Babar Azam Regains Top Position in ICC ODI Batting Rankings

In a thrilling turn of events, Babar Azam, the seasoned cricketer and former captain of the Pakistan cricket team, has ascended to the pinnacle of the latest International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI batting rankings. This remarkable feat sees him reclaiming the coveted No. 1 spot, surpassing India’s emerging batting sensation, Shubman Gill.

Babar Azam’s resurgence in the ICC ODI rankings is nothing short of spectacular, as he now boasts an impressive rating of 824, nudging ahead of Shubman Gill, who currently holds the second spot with 810 rating points. This achievement marks a triumphant return for Babar Azam, who had maintained the No. 1 position for nearly three years before briefly conceding it to Gill.

The 29-year-old maestro has consistently showcased his batting brilliance in ODIs, amassing an impressive record of 5729 runs in 117 matches at an outstanding average of 56.72. Notably, he has notched up an impressive 19 centuries, a testament to his high-quality batting skills.

Despite his recent decision to step down from the captaincy across all formats of Pakistan cricket after a challenging World Cup 2023 campaign, Babar Azam’s fans are optimistic. They anticipate that the talented batsman will unleash his true prowess on the field. With a renewed focus on his primary role as a batsman, Babar Azam aims to make significant contributions and solidify his standing as one of the premier ODI batsmen in the world.
