Azhar Mahmood ' Pakistan Test Cricket ' Cricket Signed Card Autograph £6.00
This is an In Person signed 6" x 4" white card by the former Pakistan Test Cricketer.
Azhar Mahmood Sagar ( born 28 February 1975) is a Pakistani-born cricketer who became a British citizen in 2011 and is now a fully qualified English cricketer. Originally his father objected to his interest in cricket, but later started to appreciate it seeing his accomplishments. As a teenager, Azhar was mentored by Irfan Bhatti who played a One Day International for Pakistan in the early 90’s. When not doing net practice, Azhar would fancy himself playing tape ball cricket on the cemented pitch in the cricket ground in front of his home. He loves watching Hindi movies and considers Amitabh Bachchan as his idol.
Azhar made his One-Day International debut against India in 1996 at Toronto Cricket Club, Toronto, but did not gain major recognition until his Test debut against South Africa the following year at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi when he hit a century and a half-century without being dismissed. He later went on to score two more centuries against the South Africans.
He joined the Pakistani team primarily as a medium pacer but he has surprised many by his batting powers. His hard hitting but orthodox batting skills have also been extremely useful in the one-day game. Unlike most Pakistani pacers who are swing bowlers, he is a useful English-style seam bowler, who can chip in with wickets in time of need.
