38 minutes in the video, Babar Azam played the shot of the day. A few weeks ago, he had one century from 21 Test matches. Since then, he has scored two from three -- one against the ruthless Aussies and one against the hapless Sri Lankans.
Having made his first-class debut among many who grew up at a time when international cricket was absent from the country, Abid made his maiden Test appearance at the age of 31. And he made the most of it by scoring a century, becoming the only player in history to reach three figures in his first Test and ODI.
