Pakistan’s leading Test skipper and opening batsman Azhar Ali is set to resume competitive cricket to prove his match fitness ahead of Pakistan’s tour to New Zealand.
Azhar Ali, due to the knee injury, was out of cricketing action since Pakistan’s Test series against Sri Lanka, which also kept him out of the limited overs series and the national T20 tournament.
He went to the United Kingdom for his rehab program under doctor Zafar where he worked to regain fitness during his month-long stay.
After his rehabilitation program completed, the 32-year-old batsman has joined his domestic team SNGPL on Saturday to play the super eight stage of Pakistan’s premier first-class tournament Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
He will be in action for SNGPL against HBL in Quaid-e-Azam Trophy’s match starting on Sunday.
