Babar Azam and Shaheen Afridi Shine as Top Performers in 2023

Bismah Maroof emerged as the leading run-getter for women team with impressive 624 runs

Former captain Babar Azam and pacer Shaheen Afridi remained the top-performing cricketers for Pakistan in international cricket in 2023, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a statement on Monday.

In a post on X, the PCB said Babar remained the leading run-getter and Afridi the top wicket-taker for Pakistan.

In November last year, Babar ventured down as Pakistan’s cricket captain days after a gathering stage exit from the World Cup.

Subsequent to showing dismal performance in the 50-over Asia Cup and World Cup tournaments, Babar neglected to act in Pakistan’s continuous Test series against Australia.

Babar held the best position in the ODI players’ rankings last month and scored 1,399 runs from 35 matches, which included three centuries and 10 fifties consistently.

Following Babar’s resignation, fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi was selected captain of the Pakistan T20 team. The left-arm pacer took 62 wickets in 30 matches at a normal of 27.80 in 2023.

In the mean time, Pakistan’s former captain Bismah Maroof arose as the main run-getter for the ladies’ group with a great 624 runs from 25 matches in 2023 which included three half-hundreds of years.
