LAHORE: The two-prominent Pakistani all-rounders of the 90s and early 2000s Abdul Razzaq and Azhar Mahmood have picked Imran Khan as their partners during Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Digital Pairs series.
The series, which entered its fifth phase on Thursday, has garnered immense popularity among the fans, current and former players, pundits and journalists. The followers were asked to name two all-rounders of their choice.
Azhar, who represented Pakistan in 21 Tests scoring 900 runs and collecting 39 wickets, recalled that he started playing cricket inspired by the legendary captain and all-rounder Imran Khan.
