Azhar Ali set to return to Somerset for 2019 season

Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali is set to return to Somerset as an overseas player for the 2019 season, the club announced on Monday.

The 33-year-old will be available for the entire County Championship and Royal London One-Day Cup campaigns in his second spell at Taunton.

Azhar, who recently retired from the one-day internationals, has made himself available for the whole summer next year.

"I very much enjoyed my time with the club this year and I am really pleased to be going back," he said.

"Somerset is a special club and it was a pleasure to play for them in 2018. There was a really good atmosphere in the dressing room and there are some very good players at the club. The supporters were excellent and I look forward to seeing everyone again next year.”
