Pakistan opener Azhar Ali returned to competitive cricket Sunday with a century for Sui Norther Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL) against Habib Bank Limited (HBL) in a Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match at Karachi.
Azhar spent 350 minutes at the crease and scored 118 from 229 balls which included 12 4s.
However, Azhar opened for Pakistan in the two Tests scoring 85, 0, 59, 17.
After being replaced by Imam-ul-Haq, who scored a century on his ODI debut against Sri Lanka, for the ODIs, Azhar flew to England to complete his rehabilitation.
With his 118, Azhar also surpassed the 10,000-run mark in first-class cricket .
