Babar achieved the feat in 97 innings, while the previous record-holder, Hashim Amla of South Africa, needed 101 innings.
Tom Latham, the captain of New Zealand, won the toss and decided to bowl in the fourth ODI.
Mohammad Nawaz had to be dropped after suffering a finger injury in the third match on Wednesday, despite Pakistan already holding a commanding 3-0 lead in the five-match series. Imam-ul-Haq, Shadab Khan, Abdullah Shafique, and Naseem Shah are also out.
