With his 4th hundred in the format, Babar also became the third-fastest batsman to cross the 5,000 runs mark in T20 cricket at an impressive average of over 42. His 114* is also the highest individual score in this year’s T20 Blast.
The 25-year-old’s previous scores for Somerset this year were 10, 0, 6, and 42, however, Babar played brilliantly on a tricky pitch and raised his bat for a century for the 4th time in his career.
