At a media interaction ahead of Pakistan's two Test series against Sri Lanka, Babar Azam was asked about surpassing Virat Kohli as the World No 1 T20I batter for the longest period of time.

This is how the exchange turned out: 'You recently broke Virat Kohli's record...'

Before the scribe could finish his question, a surprised Babar stopped him and asked, 'Which one?'

'You have remained No 1 in T20Is for the longest time.'

'I would like to thank god,' the Pakistan captain responded.

'There is hard work involved and that is why I have been able to give good performances.'

Pakistan fly to Sri Lanka on Wednesday, July 6.
