Babar usurps Kohli in latest T20I rankings boost

Babar Azam can lay claim to being the top ranked T20I batter in the world for the longest period of time

after he maintained his spot at the head of proceedings on the latest MRF Tyres ICC T20 batting rankings.

India star Virat Kohli was the No.1 ranked T20I batter for a total of 1,013 days during his reign last decade

but Babar has now surpassed this number following his long-standing stay at the top.

The Pakistan skipper is currently rated as the No.1 batter in T20Is and ODIs 

and recently suggested he was keen to try and claim top billing in all three formats of the game.
