“Azhar Ali has been a true ambassador for cricket. Congratulations to him and his family. To have such a selfless cricketer in the dressing room has meant a great deal to our cricket system and team. Very rarely do you see such cricketers retiring on a high,” stated Raja.

“I would have liked him to play 100 Test matches but just to let you know Azhar, I also ended up with 198 ODIs. It doesn’t matter, it’s just a number.

“What you have achieved is truly amazing. You lifted us all and stood up in crunch situations. You are a great example. I want people to play cricket like you, with a smile on their face and enjoying the game.”
