Pakistan’s Test specialist Azhar is having a productive stint of County cricket with ongoing association with Somerset. Having performed both with bat and ball, Azhar is fast emerging as one of the overseas heroes for the Somerset franchise.
Following the completion of the upcoming ICC World Cup, Azhar will also be joined by star Pakistan batsman Babar Azam in the County circuit. Expected to take part in England’s premier domestic T20 tournament, Babar will be sharing the dressing room with his compatriot Azhar for Somerset.
Talking about his junior teammate, Azhar lavished lofty praises on Babar’s cricketing abilities and also an individual. Calling him a likeable bloke, the 34-year-old believed that Babar’s current status as the world no.1 T20I batsman speaks volumes of his irrefutable caliber.
