Asia Cup 2023: PAK vs NEP: The first game of the Asia Cup 2023 is underway, and it is only Babar Azam’s show in Multan. Pakistan is playing against Nepal in the tournament’s opener at the Multan Cricket Stadium. It started with Pakistan winning the toss and deciding to bat first. Though the start was not that good. Pakistan lost Fakhar Zaman (14) and Imam-ul-Haq (5), who got out cheaply.

Babar added an 86-run stand with Mohammad Rizwan (44), who got run out in a lazy way. Then Agha Salman also got out after scoring just four runs, which brought Iftikhar Ahmed to the crease. Pakistan were at 124/4 in 27.5 overs when Babar Azam and Iftikhar added an important partnership for the fifth wicket.

Iftikhar scored his second ODI fifty off just 44 balls, and Babar also completed his fifty. But then the Pakistani skipper picked up the pace and went on to score his 19th ODI ton in just 102 innings. He completed his century off 109 balls and started taking on the bowlers. With this hundred, Babar Azam is now the quickest to score his 19th ODI hundred. He went past the record of Hashim Amla, who scored his 19th ODI ton in 104 innings.
