Former Pakistan captain and famous commentator Ramiz Raja
The 33-year-old is going through a horrid time with the bat in the ongoing three-match series against South Africa, where he has managed to score just 59 runs in six innings with scores of 36, 0, 2, 6, 0 and 15.
Ex-Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja believes that the veteran batsman is only keeping hold of his place in the Test team since he has played more than 70 Test matches.
“There is a big question mark over Azhar [Ali]’s place in the team. Apart from that first innings during the first Test where he scored 30 odd runs, he just never looked in control, to be honest. He can neither play the short ball nor did he look comfortable against the deliveries which are moving,” Ramiz said.
Following his horrific performances, Twitterati also didn’t spare Azhar Ali as they expressed their disappointment in sad and angry tweets.
Azhar has been completely out of form on this tour of South Africa where couldn't score a single half-century in three Test matches.
