“Absolutely delighted to be joining the Multan Sultans family [for the] Pakistan Super League 2020! Look forward to a fun, exciting and successful season with the boys. Bring it on boys!” Azhar said on Twitter.
Azhar was Pakistan’s bowling coach until the conclusion of the World Cup earlier this year, where he was let go along with everyone else.
He was subsequently replaced by legendary Pakistan seamer Waqar Younis.
In this year’s PSL, the Sultans finished fifth out of the six teams as they won three games and lost seven.
The 2020 edition of the PSL will be held entirely in Pakistan and run from February 20 to March 22.
