Pakistan’s recently elected skipper, Babar Azam is now the world’s No. 1 ODI batsman as he thrones the spot from India’s captain, Virat Kohli.

Babar’s feat has come in light of his magnificent performance versus South Africa as the two teams coiled up a three-match ODI series a few days ago.

He has scored 228 runs at an average of 78 and now holds 865 points on the list of ICC ODI rankings for batsmen.

Notably, Kohli remained on the first spot for 41 months which conclude a total of 1258 days. Kohli’s downfall may be a result of his immense struggle for an ODI century for over a year.

However, he had winded up an absolute series against England scoring 129 at an average of 43 in a three-match ODI series.
