Pakistan assistant coach Shahid Aslam and NHPC fielding coach Atiq-uz-Zaman were also present for the session.
With the National T20 Cup starting on September 30, Azhar won’t be taking part in the tournament as he isn’t a member of any squad, while Shehzad will miss it since he only recently recovered from a hand injury. However, Azhar will commentate during the competition.
The 35-year-old recently captained Pakistan in the three-Test series against England, which Pakistan lost 1-0.
He finished as Pakistan’s highest run-scorer with 210 runs, which included a superb 141 not out in the third Test, at an average of 52.50.
