For his remarkable contributions to Pakistani cricket, Pakistani skipper Babar Azam has received the country’s highest civil award in LAHORE.
At the youthful age of 28, the right-given player turns into the most youthful cricketer to get Sitara-e-Imtiaz for his remarkable accomplishments in the game.
During an investiture ceremony held at the Governor House as part of the celebrations for Pakistan Day, Punjab Governor Baligh Ur Rehman presented the flamboyant batter with the civil award.
Immense honour to have received Sitara-e-Imtiaz in the presence of my mother and father.

Babar, broadly known as cover drive lord, is right now on a break from cricket to go to the function, as the cricketer won’t be partaking in that frame of mind against Afghanistan. He became a role model for aspiring players throughout his career.
In a short amount of time, Babar led Pakistan to victories in both the ICC World T20 2022 final and the T20 World Cup semi-final. He made his international debut in 2015 and won numerous trophies in cricket history. The best player even accomplished a number of feats on a global scale.
In 47 Test matches, he scored 3,696 runs at an average of 48.63, and in 95 One-Day International matches, he scored 4,813 runs at an average of 59.41. Babar has won numerous awards for his distinctive style in the shortest format.
For the uninitiated, Sarfaraz Ahmed, a former Pakistani captain, previously held the record for being the youngest recipient of the Sitara-e-Imtiaz. The prestigious award has also been given to Younis Khan, Shahid Afridi, Misbah-ul-Haq, Saeed Ajmal, and Javed Miandad for their contributions.
