Babar Azam achieves a significant milestone, surpassing Sir Vivian Richards along the way.

Babar Azam becomes the second-fastest player to reach 4,000 runs in ODI cricket, surpassing Sir Vivian Richards. He achieved this milestone in his 82nd innings against Australia in the first ODI.

In the opening ODI against Australia at Gaddafi Stadium, Babar needed 15 runs to reach 4,000 runs in ODIs. Only Hashim Amla has achieved this feat faster than Babar, taking just 81 innings. Babar Azam has now surpassed the legendary West Indian batsman Sir Vivian Richards, who took 88 innings to accomplish the same.

Currently, Babar Azam is batting at 54 alongside Imam-ul-Haq, with Pakistan at 116 for the loss of 1 wicket while chasing a target of 313 runs. Here is the list of the fastest players to reach 4,000 runs.
