Aaj TV

Social media users took to Twitter to wish cricketer Babar Azam on his birthday.

The all-format captain and world's number one ranked ODI batsman turned 27 on Friday.

He came into the spotlight when he was a member of the under-19 team. He rose to prominence in 2016 when he scored three consecutive ODI hundreds against the West Indies in the UAE, aged only 22.

Azam played two Under-19 World Cups in 2010 and 2012, and he emerged as Pakistan's top-scoring batsman.

His colleagues also took to Twitter to wish him.

As Geo reported he has scored an impressive 3,985 runs at an average of 56.92, and from 61 T20Is, scored an equally impressive 2,204 runs at an average of 46.89.

And fans were out in full force to wish him.
