Northern batting all-rounder Hammad Azam has applauded Pakistan spinner Nauman Ali following his special debut in the Test series against South Africa.
Nauman played his first two games for the national team against the Proteas and took a total of eight wickets in the series at an average of 21.50.
In the first Test in Karachi, the 34-year-old became just the 12th Pakistan player to take a five-wicket haul on Test debut.
