Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif said Imran Butt and Azhar Ali are both unbalanced on the front foot when batting.
In Imran’s case, Latif pointed out that he is transfering too much weight on his front toe.
As for Azhar, he is doing the same thing, but only on his front heel.
Both Imran and Azhar featured in the recent two-Test series against the West Indies, but failed to have a major impact.
Imran scored 49 runs at an average of 12.25, while Azhar amassed 62 runs at an average of 15.50.
