This was his 17th Test match, but he has finally made it to three figures in the format. Azam finished on 127 not out against New Zealand in the second Test in Dubai.
Babar said that it was not a burden on him that he had not scored a Test century, but getting to the landmark was a relief.
A career-best hundred from Haris Sohail and a maiden century from Babar Azam powered Pakistan to post a huge total to boost their chances of a series-levelling win against Kiwis in the second Test in Dubai on Sunday.
