    Azhar Ali re-signed by Somerset for 2019 season, to be available for first-class and List A games



    He will be available for both County and One-Day matches.

    Oh this is fantastic news. I honestly don’t care one bit about his slow strike rate and inability to rotate strike...valid but overstated criticisms. He puts a price on his wicket and scores ugly runs but gets there more often than not. Playing English county will only help him develop further.

    Very happy for Azhar. He comes in for a lot of criticism but he has made a solid contribution to Pakistan cricket over the years. With all the emphasis on white ball cricket the stint with Somerset will be a good opportunity for him. Somerset see his value not only as a player but as a leader.

    I will be keeping a close eye on his performance here. This should be a good experience for him, and a chance for him to regain form. If he flops for Somerset I think we may see him dropped from the Pakistan side

    Hopefully he will retire and can focus on plenty of county cricket, hes not going to improve at international level.

    I think one of the first things you learn about playing short pitched bowling is too keep your eye on the ball and if you decide to sway out of the way keep your hands low. I personally think his reaction times have gone. He'll be ok on dead pitches, as long as the game is not on the line, but anything with any pace or bounce forget it. A shadow of the batsmen who scored at Old Trafford and the MCG

    the way he played today vs Olivier I thought was dangerous for him!
