Right-gave Babar, world’s top-positioned T20 batsman, struck six sixes to enable the hosts to post 202-4 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.
Hampshire was 69-6 when downpour achieved an early decision, on a night that saw three of eight booked apparatuses deserted in view of climate. Babar has overwhelmed the current year’s T20 Blast — and Hampshire’s bowlers think about it more than anybody.
The 24-year-old made an unbeaten 95 at Taunton prior in the challenge — a game Somerset really proceeded to lose — and was feeling comparable in Southampton on Friday.
He was not to be denied three figures this time, be that as it may, crushing the last chunk of Somerset’s innings for six to take him to 102, arriving at his best score in T20 cricket all the while.
It implies the Pakistan batsman has now scored 197 keeps running in two T20 matches against Hampshire this year, remaining not out and batting for each of the 40 overs.
Babar even accepting two gets as Hampshire slipped to 69-6 in answer, with the landing of downpour meaning Somerset won by 63 keeps running on Duckworth-Lewis-Stern.
