In their third match of the season, Babar Azam scored 19 runs off 18 balls, including three boundaries, against Quetta Gladiators in Karachi.

The 28-year-old batter has now scored 2,509 runs in 69 PSL innings, with a strike rate of 121.56 and an average of 41.81.

Shoaib Malik comes in second with 2,033 PSL runs, while Fakhar Zaman comes in third with 2,020 runs.
