CENTURION: Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has added another feather to his illustrious cap as he became the fastest men's cricketer to score 13th centuries in ODI cricket.

Playing in his 78th ODI on Friday, Babar smashed 103 runs to guide his team to a three-wicket win in the first ODI of the three-match series against South Africa at the SuperSport Park in Centurion. He surpassed former Proteas batsman Hashim Amla and India skipper Virat Kohli to achieve the feat.
