Two of the grand old men of Pakistan Cricket are using this weekend’s Abu Dhabi T20 as a platform to relaunch their careers.
Abdul Razzaq and Imran Nazir are representing Lahore Qalandars, Yorkshire’s first opponents under lights at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium tomorrow night.
The pair have almost 500 international caps between them, but have been out of all cricket for a number of years, with Nazir suffering from arthritis.
While all-rounder Razzaq, who has faded out of the game since making his international appearance in 2013, has returned to domestic cricket within the last month, batsman Nazir has not played any pro cricket since 2014.
“The last four years were a nightmare,” said Nazir, 36-years-old.
