Twitter has a field day with memes as it crowns Babar Azam world's #1 ODI batsman


Azam, who is currently at 852 points, five behind Kohli, is expected to gain six points for the series against South Africa.





Pakistan cricket's blue-eyed boy Babar Azam is expected to overtake Indian captain Virat Kohli to become the top rated ODI batsman in the world during the Pakistan versus South Africa match on Wednesday. While the ICC has yet to announce the rankings, the country has already started celebrations.

He scored 94 runs off 82 balls and led his team to a 28-run victory. Azam's performance won him the man of the match award for the third ODI, as Pakistan settled the series with a 2-1 victory.

Azam, who is currently at 852 points, five behind Kohli, is expected to gain six points for the series against South Africa — with his ton in the first game, and 94 in the third — taking him above the Indian superstar cricketer when the ICC ODI batsmen rankings are next updated. Currently, Kohli stands atop of the un-updated rankings.





The captain took to social media to express his delight at the series win, dedicating his victory to Pakistan, and noted just how superbly teammate Fakhar Zaman played throughout the series.


Twitter, of course, felt there was no better way to celebrate than memes!


It's true, the man's a king.


One user spotted the ushering of a new era in world cricket, terming it the 'Mughal-e-Azam' era.

Icc updates its ratings regarding ODI's on Wednesday! Lets wait for one week.

Both Virat & Babar are exceptional batsmen, Babar has played less than 80 matches so far, imagine where he will be if his career goes on like misbah's/shoiab mailk's/hafeez (300/400 ODI matches). He has a long road ahead.

Last time India were there in South Africa, we beat them 4-1 in ODIs. Virat kohli made 3 centuries in that series.
Do you ever read before responding?

considering none of the star players were there on the SA side, unclear if this is that big a deal
Were they also not there for the other 852 points that he had scored thus far?

Not our problem. We won the series in SA and that is all that matters. If SA believes IPL is more important than international matches that is their choice. We won and Babar Azam earned some juicy points in the process.
