Pakistan batting legend recalled the moment when Mohammad Azharuddin’s advice helped him score a double hundred in a Test match in England in 2016. Younis, Pakistan’s leading run-scorer in Test cricket, was struggling in England when he got a call from Azhar, who offered him a simple piece of advice.Only a very arrogant man would have turned down good advice from a batsman like Azhar and Younis is a wise man, who knew he needed good advice at that point. He listened to the former India captain and scored a hundred.The two faced off at Salaam Cricket 2018 and the mutual respect was evident.Younis said he had been an Azharuddin fan since his first tour against India in Sharjah.Salaam Cricket 2018: LIVE”My first tour against India was in Sharjah and I have been following Azharuddin since then.

Misbah disagrees”Two years ago, when I was struggling, Azhar bhai gave me a piece advice and that helped me score 200 against England in my last Test,” Younis said. “(Back then) I got a lot of criticism by the end of my career but Azhar bhai called me and told me that batsmen also use the crease and he asked me to try it in the nets. He did not force me into it but asked me to try and I did and that helped me.”Also read – Quality of batting has gone down, says HarbhajanadvertisementAzhar said he just reciprocated after a similarly nice gesture from Pakistan batting great Zaheer Abbas.”I told him whatever I had learnt in England and I think he implemented it.”In 1989, I was dropped from the first Test but there were no regrets because I was not batting very well. But Zaheer Abbas came to our nets session and he asked why I could not score. Then I told him what the problem was and he asked me to change my grip – I tried it but it felt a little strange. But he was one of my idols and tried it in the nets. After that, when I played a Test, I scored some runs and took five catches and my place was sealed. After changing my grip, my game changed completely.Also read – Muralitharan switched to off spin after trying pace and leg break”I had given Younis advice but Zaheer bhai had also given me sound advice years ago,” Azhar said.
