    [VIDEOS] Worcestershire CCC sign Azhar Ali for the 2022 County Championship & Royal London OD Cup

    Worcestershire CCC have moved to sign prolific Pakistan Test opener Azhar Ali for the entire 2022 LV=Insurance County Championship campaign.

    Ali committed to Worcestershire on Wednesday evening and should be available to play all 14 County Championship matches this summer.

    Worcestershire Cricket Steering Group Chairman, Paul Pridgeon, described Ali as “a quality signing who will also be great in the dressing room.”

    The right-hander has played 91 Tests for his country spanning 11 years since making his debut in 2010 and has scored 6721 runs at an average of 42.53 with 18 centuries.

    Ali already has experience of County Championship cricket, through three spells at Somerset, and he scored a century against Worcestershire on his debut at Taunton in 2018.

    He is set for his Worcestershire debut in the opening County Championship game against Leicestershire at the Uptonsteel County Ground beginning on April 7.

    Worcestershire supporters will have the first opportunity to see Ali in action at New Road against Sussex in a game that gets underway on April 21.

    The former Pakistan captain replaces Australian Matthew Wade in one of Worcestershire’s overseas player spots. The wicket-keeper batsman is unable to join the County as planned for 2022 after being picked up by the Gujarat Titans for this year’s Indian Premier League.

    Pridgeon said: “I think it is a fantastic signing and Alex Gidman (Head Coach) is delighted. Azhar should be available for all 14 County Championship matches.

    “His record in Test cricket is outstanding, and he offers great experience and is of high quality.

    “He has got a lot going for him, and it is excellent as well that we’ve got someone available to play County Championship cricket all summer. It gives us that stability.



    “Azhar will be great in the dressing room as well and will also be able to pass on some good information and experience to the young lads.

    “We spoke to Andy Hurry (Somerset Head Coach), and he said Azhar is singularly the nicest human being you could ever come across.

    “The fact he has played county cricket already so knows all about English conditions is another plus factor.”

    Ali has vast experience and made his first class debut two decades ago.

    His Test debut came at Lord’s against Australia in 2010, and he has been a critical component in the Pakistan side ever since.

    Ali hit his highest Test score of 302 not out against the West Indies in Dubai in October 2016 when he batted for 11 hours.

    He has a total of 41 first class hundreds and 14,040 runs.

    He will fail just as he did for Somerset where he was averaging in the low twenties.

    He is well past his best and is probably touching 40. His career is over and he should have retired after the recent England series in 2020 where his captaincy was badly exposed in the first Test (a Test we should have won).

    He will for sure score a snail pace hundred in one of the games along with with a few low scores to ensure the average is around the mid 30 mark by the end of the season.

    His batting approach is that of a tailender on a road too! He just manages to score some meaningless runs then.

    No real shock he averaged less than 30 at somerset, one of worst possible overseas county signings ever. i doubt he would score any runs if he was playing for a club side in the uk.

    Surely age has now caught up on Azhar.

    Failed Ini every innings so far, May be just playing him for the sake of 100 test matches isn’t it.

    There is a reason no Pakistani cricketer has yet achieved that feat.

    Lets be honest on form, does he deserve a prolonged run, like he has.

    He'll play vs Sri Lanka, pile of some runs and will retain his spot for at least another year and we will all be extremely disappointed.

    He is easily the worst player to watch too. Just extremely boring and doesn't even kick on when he is fully set. Can make the same argument for Fawad Alam but at least his batting stance entertains me. Azhar is just boring, old and not good anymore. The only reason he didn't get cut like Shafiq did is because of his former captaincy and the "experience" excuse.

    If he performs here then he will not be dropped from Pakistan team. If he takes retirement from international team then everyone will wish him all the best for any county game.

    It only took Durham 4.5 sessions to score 580 on this flat pitch — and then Azhar Ali got out for a second ball duck for Worcestershire soon afterwards, against a Division Two medium-fast bowler who has played barely 20 matches. That is just embarrassing really.

    Its high time he called it quits

    Azhar is embarrasing himself and ruining his legacy and stats

    Time to call it a day for Azhar. I hope the selectors are noting this performance which, to be frank, would be embarrassing for a number 11.

    No more selections on so called “reputation”, please! Worcestershire deserve a full refund from Azhar and he should give it to them out of sheer embarrassment.

    He has actually managed to reduce his average even further, to 5.67.

    My question for Worcs is simple. At what point do you say we cannot play him in our next game?

    Worcs looking like they are going to be bowled out early this afternoon and they are still over 300 runs behind. If Durham enforce the follow-on then Azhar could find himself batting again soon. If he wants to avoid being dropped/released then he really is in dire need of a score, or at the very least to show some prolonged resistance.

    Worcs getting their moneys worth here from this pakistani legend. Cant wait to see him play his 100th tests, clearly using this county stint to build up his world class form. All hail the legend that is Azhar Ali.

    Whilst Azhar Ali is struggling and is in decline comparing him with Shan masood in any capacity is just pathetic .

    Azhar Ali even in decline has outperformed Shan in the last 2-3 years .

    Shan has scored 32 runs in his last 8 test innings with 3 ducks in his last 4 test innings . Azhar has 2 100s and a few 50s in his last 8 innings .

    1000 runs before end of May in the large scheme of things don’t mean anything.

    Shan does not even average 30 yet in test cricket despite nearly 26 tests .

    Azhar going steadily on 20* (46) in Worcestershire's 2nd innings against Durham.

    They're 82/2 (19.0), need 360 runs to win.


    Arsenal all the way!! (and Pakistan, of course!)

    Minimum wage which I believe is currently £9.50 per hour.

    Is there a source for this one pls ?

    ie the overseas player salary rate, not the UK minimum wage.

    I'm eager to find the source as well but I guess we'll find out when Azhar Ali has his next interview with PP.
