“Magnificient from Babar Azam (114* from 62) and Lewis Goldsworthy on debut (38* from 29),” Somerset said.
Babar Azam — placed among the top T20 batters — rejoined Somerset for this year’s domestic T20 Blast, the county had announced last month. Babar Azam was the leading run-scorer in the 2019 edition.
Presently captaining Pakistan in their T20 series in England after featuring in all three Tests earlier in the tour, the cricketer had agreed to return to southwest club Somerset before the Covid-19 pandemic turned over cricket schedules around the world.
The 25-year-old is playing Somerset’s final seven group matches plus the knockout stages should they qualify.
