Pakistan captain Babar Azam surpassed Virat Kohli to become the all-time leading run-scorer in T20Is during his team's 2024 T20 World Cup game against the USA on June 6.

Before the match at Grand Prairie Stadium, Azam trailed Kohli by just 16 runs. It took Azam 120 games to reach this milestone, while Kohli set his record in 118 games.

Despite Pakistan's batters struggling against the USA, Azam's steady knock provided much-needed stability. Azam initially struggled, scoring 10 runs off 24 balls before hitting his first boundary off the last ball of the 10th over, bowled by Jasdeep Singh.

The 2024 T20 World Cup has been significant for Azam, who was reappointed as Pakistan's white-ball captain ahead of the tournament. This new responsibility has added pressure on the 29-year-old, who remains a key figure in his squad.
