Former Pakistan captain Babar Azam became the first player in history to score 3,000 runs in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) after he opened the 2024 campaign with a half-century, his 29th in the tournament leading the Peshawar Zalmi. Babar needed 65 runs to reach the 3,000-run mark and he achieved the landmark while trying to help Zalmi chase a huge target of 207 runs against the Quetta Gladiators. Babar ended up scoring 68 off 42 while opener Saim Ayub smashed a quickfire 42, however, it wasn't enough for the Zalmi to win the contest as they fell short by 16 runs.

Babar is the

leading run-getter in PSL history and no other player is anywhere close to the former Pakistan skipper. However, Sunday's innings also helped Babar get close to the iconic landmark of 10,000 runs in T20 cricket overall. Babar currently has 9,994 runs to his name and six more will make him the 13th player in history to get to the milestone and second from Pakistan after Shoaib Malik.

Most runs in PSL history

3003 - Babar Azam (78 innings)
2381 - Fakhar Zaman (77 innings)
2135 - Shoaib Malik (78 innings)
2007 - Mohammad Rizwan (61 innings)
