Pakistan’s newly-appointed captain Azhar Ali misfires in the tour game against Australia A. Azhar, who was recently given the job of captaincy, carries a huge responsibility on his shoulders to deliver in the hostile conditions of Australia.
After Babar Azam performed well with the bat under the leadership job, the expectations increased on Azhar as well. Azhar only managed to score 11 runs in the tour game before he was trapped LBW by Michael Nesser.
Averaging just over 43, Azhar occupies a very key position in Pakistan’s batting line-up. Pakistan will be looking forward to their Test captain to deliver in Australia during the upcoming Test series.
Pakistan does not have a good record in Australia and Azhar has a great chance to turn things around in the 2-match series with the bat and the captaincy.
