Azhar never thought of leaving the captaincy
There is no run at-bat, the team is also losing. So it is not unreasonable to be under pressure, but Pakistan’s Test captain Azhar never thought of leaving the captaincy. He scored a century in the last Test, Pakistan was able to draw in the rain, but he survived the match. All in all, the failure of the captaincy is being sidelined by the praise of batting prowess, which is currently giving relief to Azhar Ali.
The Pakistan cricket team had a batting disaster in the beginning in response to England’s run hill, but with the help of wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan, Azhar Ali was able to draw the match with the help of hostile weather. His unbeaten 141-run innings could not avoid a follow-on, but the most important role behind the draw. As a result, the whole cricket world is praising Pakistan for its captaincy innings.
The second Test was washed away in the rain before the last Test was drawn, but Pakistan also lost the first Test of the series from an advantageous position. Azhar Ali’s captaincy has been put on hold for the rate at which he played 0 and 16 runs in two innings in that Test. Asked if he thought of leaving the captaincy in such a situation, Azhar Ali said at the end of the series, “Not at all, I just focused on the series. It never crossed my mind, yes I am stressed but I am focused on my performance. ”
Azhar Ali is disappointed not for the captaincy but for the series rate. “As a captain after the loss in the first Test, I have withstood the pressure and the criticism, ” he said. But I promised to change the situation with my own performance, I am very lucky that our team management also helped in this matter. But we are disappointed not to win the series. I came here to win the series, I got the chance but I missed it. ”
England won the first Test of the three-match series and won the series. The hosts were in a good position in the next two Tests as well. In fact, the rain has saved Pakistan from losing in these two Tests, but the points earned in the rain due to the ICC Test Championship match is a sweet achievement for Pakistan.
