Peshawar Zalmi’s captain, Babar Azam scored his maiden century in the ongoing eighth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium last night.

While batting first against Quetta Gladiators, Babar Azam scored 115 runs off 65 balls, including 15 fours and three sixes, helping his side to post a massive target of 241 runs on the board.

The all-format captain left former New Zealand captain, Brendon McCullum, and star England batter, Luke Wright behind on the list, who scored seven centuries each.
