In his first match, Babar scored 41 off 41 deliveries. He played an even better inning of 50 from 29 deliveries in the next T20 and remained not-out.  In the third and final T20, he managed to score only 18 from 17 deliveries, making him the No. 1 T20 ranked batsman.

Pakistan lost the first match in the three-match series but came back with a bang in the next two winning both and taking the series 2-1. After the historic series win, Pakistan climbed to the No. 1 spot in the ICC T20 rankings.
