In a series of exclusive blogs exclusively for PakPassion.net, Azhar Mahmood will offer a unique perspective on a variety of issues affecting cricket in Pakistan and around the world, as well as interactive question and answer sessions.

Azhar Mahmood played 21 Tests for Pakistan, scoring 900 runs and taking 39 wickets, as well as featuring in 143 ODIs, scoring 1521 runs and taking 123 wickets between 1996 and 2007.

He began his Test career in 1997 on a high note, scoring a belligerent Test century against South Africa in Rawalpindi, later adding 2 more to his tally against the same opposition in 1998. He began his ODI career against India in 1996 and was later part of the Pakistan side that reached the Final of the 1999 World Cup in England. He played his last ODI in 2007, although the match is remembered more for Pakistan’s famous defeat to Ireland at the 2007 World Cup which resulted in Pakistan crashing out of the tournament in the first round.

He has since become a prominent figure in domestic competitions around the world, including the IPL, Ram Slam T20, Big Bash League, Bangladesh Premier League, and Caribbean Premier League, where he has represented teams including Surrey, Lions, Auckland, Barbados Tridents, Barisal Burners, Dhaka Gladiators, Kent and Kings XI Punjab.
