    [VIDEO] Azhar Ali for Somerset in One Day Cup and County Championship 2019 - Performance Watch



    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

    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!

    After a promising start last season he ended up being underwhelming, producing runs at an average of low 30s.

    Last summer UK experienced a very dry summer and Taunton is one of the flattest wickets in the country, that's how you know he's well and truly past it.

    I am losing patience with Azhar and Shafiq too. I have been a big supporter of theirs over the years but since Misbah and Younus have retired, these two just haven't stepped up.

    Barber at 3 and Haris at 4 for me in tests. It's time we gave Usman Salahuddin a chance too.

    every body goes through the rough patch.Look at the pujara who was criticized massively but he did turn it around in tough away series in aus in which his performances was instrumental for india winning in aus

    Azhar ali is too good a player to be that long out of form .He will make a strong comeback in test bookmark my word

    Misbah has skewed the perception of Pakistani players and their fans. Every 35 year old considers himself a youngster now, and feels that he still has years left in the game.

    Misbah is an anomaly. In 150 years history of cricket, hardly 1% of the players were good enough to play at the top level in their 40s.

    Cricket will always be a young manís sport, and most players will be done by 36-37.

    We need to change the mindset of our players and our fans and not allow someone like Misbah to set a precedence.

    Someone like Azhar may feel that now that he has retired from white ball cricket, he can play Tests for another 10 years, but the reality is that he has already entered retirement age, and his form in the last two years shows that he is probably in terminal decline already.

    35 on paper and probably a few years older. His reflexes are giving up making it difficult to play genuine fast bowling or the moving ball.

    Worst case scenario is he is too stubborn to retire so Pakistan keep on picking him due to his name. He has a whole season here with Somerset to turn things around. Let's see what he does

    As I was saying before the start of the season, he’s finished. Either he retires from Pakistan cricket or gets axed from the team for good.

    While I used to think this way I think the age for players being done is now up around 38-40. This assumes a few big things though. The player needs to be hyper-focused on health and fitness. Misbah kept himself fit, and was a student of the game. I am personally really impressed by Virat Kholi and his obsession with fitness (I question recent reports of Veganism as thats not my cup of tea nor do I think its super healthy). It will probably be the reason he plays well into his 30's and ends up as the second best batsman after Bradman. Think of how much better Inzi, or even Indian "God" Sachin could've been had they had better fitness levels. Even the likes of Wasim or Waqar wouldn't have been who they were had Imran (ahead of his time given his era) not impressed fitness on them early on. Alongside today's medical standards I think if a player truly wanted, they could play to 40-45 easily. Look at Tom Brady playing in a heavily bruising sport still at the top. Even Kobe played at a high level because he was so obsessive. Ultimately it comes down to what the player wants and is willing to put his body through.

    Batting is ultimately a game of reflexes, and it is something that is inevitably going to decline with age no matter how fit you are. While I do think it is possible for players to be very good fielders, spinners, and perhaps even good fast bowlers into their late 30s if their training regime and diet is up to the mark, I highly doubt that most batsmen will have the reflexes to face 90 mph fast bowling. That is why batsmen tend to have a sharp decline in their mid 30's.

    Even someone like Kohli, who is perhaps the fittest cricketer of all time, may not be able to play fast bowlers with so much ease 6-7 years from now. For these reasons, I don't see a shift in the retirement age for batsmen.

    Mamoon bhai, I'm not disagreeing with you in principle, all I'm pointing out is that around the world retirement age for athletes is going up and older athletes are doing incredible things. Out of all the batsman in the world I'd give Kholi the best chance at playing longer than 35 or so. That is due to his obsession with fitness and clean eating. My point is simply this, players who put in the effort like Kholi can and will defy the odds. Players who do not, will end up on the path you've described. This is why I want a task master strength and conditioning coach who can instill a similar work ethic in out cricketers. It won't happen overnight, it is a process (look at team England, Australia, India) that will probably take a decade but we need to start now or be left behind.

    Azhar Ali to make a come back into Pak WC squad. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets selected for the playoffs game. very underrated cricketer especially after his innings against India in CT final.

    No he was finished a long time ago. He's 34 (possibly older in reality) and his reflexes are starting to go. One good innings today on a batting paradise wicket of Taunton doesn't change that.

    Azhar Ali needs to retire from international cricket.

    Harsh from Nasser. "Maybe a blessing in disguise for Somerset he is out now'.

    Agree with him though. Was struggling at the end.

    Not really. Pakistan is not that 2009 kind of team that could defend a 260ish score on a tricky pitch. Our bowling need more runs from our batsmen and if our batsmen pull up their socks I think we'll be OK.
