New Delhi. A big name of the Pakistan cricket team has suddenly made up its mind to say goodbye to cricket. The star of Azhar Ali, who has taken over the responsibility of captaining the team in ODIs and Tests, is going down the drain these days. This player, who is going through a bad phase, announced to quit international cricket after the series being played against England. Announcing his retirement, he came in front of the media and took the names of all those who contributed to his career.
Azhar Ali is counted among those captains of the Pakistan cricket team who were brought into the limelight overnight. In the year 2013, after being dropped from the team after playing ODIs for Pakistan, he was suddenly made the direct captain two years later. In the year 2015, he was given this responsibility for the tour of Bangladesh. Before the 2017 Champions Trophy, Sarfaraz Ahmed replaced him as the ODI captain. In 2018, Azhar announced his retirement from this format.

The Test played against West Indies in UAE in October 2016 was very memorable for Azhar. He made a place in the club of giants by scoring a triple century in this match. After former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq and Younis Khan, Azhar became the third Pakistani to do this feat. In the first innings, he scored an unbeaten 302 in which he scored 23 fours and 2 sixes.
