Pakistan opener Azhar Ali has admitted that he is eager to represent his country in 100 Tests as it would see him join an elite club.
Azhar has currently played 65 Tests for Pakistan, and should he feature in another 35, he will join the 100-Test club, which currently includes Javed Miandad, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Younis Khan, Wasim Akram and Saleem Malik.
When asked if he could become just the second player after Younis to score 10,000 Test runs, Azhar insisted that he is not concentrating on that particular record.
“At the moment, I don’t have any such goals in my mind,” he told PakPassion. “What I am looking forward to is to play as long as I can for my country.
“In doing so, I would like to reach the 100 Tests milestone for Pakistan. I have already played 65 Tests so far so there are another 35 to go before I can I achieve that goal. At that point, I will see where I stand in terms of runs.
“Obviously to get to any such milestone such as the 100 Test mark, I will have to perform very well and once that happens, anything is possible.”
