Whatever you call a half-century or a fifty, scoring the most fifties in a T20 league like the PSL with a reasonable strike rate is a difficult challenge. This is due to the fact that no other league can compete with the PSL’s bowling attack. PSL-born bowlers such as Hasan Ali, Naseem Shah, and Shaheen Afridi can make it extremely difficult for any batter to reach the threshold of 50 runs. To score more runs in the PSL, a batsman must be of the highest caliber, as was the case with Babar Azam.
In the PSL, Babar Azam has the most half-centuries with 23. His intelligence greatly outstrips his ability to reach these half centuries. No other batter has come close to matching Babar’s feat. As a result, it appears that he will continue to do so for some time.
The PSL statistics show that these half-centuries and centuries were scored by opening hitters, regardless of who scored the century or half-century. The explanation for this is straightforward: in the league’s T20 format, the opening hitter (top order) gets more opportunities to bat and has more time to develop that lower-order batsman.
