The former Indian captain achieved the feat in his 17th inning followed by AB De Villiers and Kane Williamson who did so in 20th and 22nd inning.

Moreover, he also became the fastest in the 17th ODI century. Clicking the thrilling century during Pak vs WI 1st ODI, Azam also surpassed 1000 runs in the World Cup Super League 2022-23 and is the top scorer on the table with 1005 runs. Notably, he is now the only player to cross the 1000-run mark in World Cup Super League.

As if it was not enough, it is to note that his hundred yesterday was the third consecutive in the 50-over format. It makes him the only player to score three back-to-back centuries in the format on two occasions. Before Pak vs WI 1st ODI that took place on 8th June, he slammed two centuries against Australia in the recent home series in April. Earlier, he did it against the West Indies in 2016
