Former West Indies cricketer Brian Lara has appreciated the Pakistan team’s captain Azhar Ali for playing match-saving inning to save his team in the third and the last Test series against England.

Taking to his Instagram account, Lara said that he enjoyed watching Pakistan vs England Test series, CPL T20, UEFA Champions League, and golf at the same time. He wrote,

“Sunday morning I woke up though I would watch some test cricket, CPL T20, golf and the UEFA champions league, literally spend the day on the couch.”


He went on to write,

“Captain Azhar Ali batting to save his country a test match with no chance of winning pretty much dull cricket if he was to achieve it. But quite the opposite I was watching one of the best test hundreds and rearguard action I have ever seen. I know Trinbago Knight Riders won their CPL match but my remote remained untouched. Well played Azhar. True captain’s knock!”

Sunday morning I woke up thought I would watch some test cricket, CPL T20, golf and the UEFA champions league, literally spend the day on the couch. Captain @azharali79_ batting to save his country a test match with no chance of winning pretty much dull cricket if he was to achieve it. But quite the opposite I was watching one of the best test hundreds and rearguard action I have ever seen. Two great partnerships with @iamfawadalam and Mohammed Rizwan but @azharali79_ played one of the best captain’s knock in modern cricket. I know @tkriders won their CPL match but my remote remained untouched. Well played @azharali79_ True captain’s knock! Well done @tkriders @djohnsonpga and @fcbayern #testcricket #sundays #engvpak #cpl #uefa

It should be mentioned here that Azhar Ali made his first Test century against England on Sunday. The right-handed batsman survived to score worthy 141 runs, however, rain interrupted the match.
