Pakistan’s former captain Azhar Ali has taken retirement from ODIs but he’s still displaying his batting skills in the white-ball cricket in England. Azhar played a pivotal role for Somerset in clinching the Royal London One Day Cup title this year.
Chasing a target of 245 in the final, Azhar gave a fantastic start to his team by playing some breath-taking cover & straight drives. The former captain of Pakistan also smacked a century in his first match for Somerset this year.
The retirement of Azhar Ali from ODIs was a shock for every cricket fan in Pakistan as he was going through a fantastic form in the same format.
Having played a pivotal role in Pakistan’s Champions Trophy campaign, Azhar Ali would have been a great choice as an opener for Pakistan in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019.
