Bye, bye Azhar Ali

At the current Karachi Test, Test cricketer Azhar will retire. In Pakistan, it is uncommon for a player to receive a proper send-off despite the fact that senior players everywhere else are given the opportunity to mark the end of their career with additional awards in acknowledgement of their excellent services. The cricket board hardly ever bids the players farewell in a respectful way. Azhar Ali, a legendary member of the cricket team, will be one of the select few players taking part in their final Test match at Karachi’s National Cricket Stadium in the hopes that he will be given a proper send-off at the conclusion of the game. Azhar Ali, whose Test match career began in 2009, amassed more than 7,000 runs in 97 Test matches in 2009, including 19 outstanding hundreds. His triple century, the first triple century in a day and night test match, is just one of his remarkable achievements. After Hanif Muhammad, Inzamamul Haq, and Younis Khan, he is the fourth batsman to score a triple century. He holds the distinction of being Hanif Muhammad’s second opener to register a double century. Traditional cricket is losing its appeal for players and spectators when T-20 and T-10 are introduced. Azhar Ali upheld the great legacy of playing classic cricket with the finest shots, and he is one of the few players with the character and temperament to be forever known in Pakistan’s cricket history for his playing and interpersonal attributes. He might, though, lament England’s victory over them in the series. The visiting side performed admirably and was superior to the hosts in both batting and bowling. Pakistan needs to perform better.
