Never thought of quitting as captain: Azhar

Pakistan captain Azhar Ali says he felt pressure when he was battling to score runs in the lost arrangement against England yet the idea of stopping captaincy never entered his thoughts.

Azhar confronted analysis for his run dry season before scoring a hundred in the main innings of the third Test.

“No, I stayed focussed on this arrangement. This thought never entered my brain. Truly there was pressure yet I was focussed on my exhibitions,” he told correspondents when inquired as to whether he needed to stop as skipper during the arrangement.

“After we lost the primary Test, as skipper I needed to manage the weight and analysis. In any case, I pledged to turn it around with my exhibitions and the measure of experience we had in our group the executives likewise helped us get over the principal Test annihilation and proceed onward.”

Britain won their first Test arrangement against Pakistan since 2010.

“We are disillusioned at not having the option to win the arrangement. We came here to draw the arrangement as well as to win it. We got our chance yet missed it. Credit likewise goes to England; they made the most of chances,” he said.
