“Happy Birthday Babar Azam. Keep making us proud. Have a great year ahead,” he said on Twitter.
Azam is widely considered to be among the best batsmen in the world today and many see him going on to become one of Pakistan’s greatest-ever players.
Azam captained Central Punjab in the National T20 Cup and scored 275 runs in five matches, which included three half-centuries, at an average of 91.66 and a strike-rate of 153.63.
Despite his strong performances, Central Punjab failed to qualify for the semi-finals.
