Abid Ali, on the other hand, marked his name into the record book as the first player in the history to score a century on both ODI and Test debut.
Babar is in a form of his life and recently in Australia, he scored a Test hundred in Brisbane and a 97 in Day-night Test in Adelaide.
It must be noted that Pakistan is hosting a Test series after a decade with Rawalpindi hosted a historic first Test and now it’s time for the city of lights, Karachi to cheer this moment.
