Tumbling records and Babar Azam's name has become synonymous over the recent past. After making a half-century in the final match of the T20I series against Zimbabwe, Babar Azam has become the fastest player to score 2000 runs in T20I cricket.

Australia's Aaron Finch consumed 62, Kiwi's Brendon McCullum took 66, Martin Guptill took 68 while Irish cricketer Paul Stirling scored 2000 T20I runs in 72 innings. 

Sri Lanka former batsman and now commentator, Russel Arnold took note of Babar'z sensational performance and expressed admiration after the Pakistan skipper made the record of scoring 2000 runs in 52 knocks. 

"It’s amazing that such a classy player gets to this milestone quicker than anyone else #2000T20Iruns It’s not all slogs and power .. Congratulations," said Arnold in a tweet.
