Former Pakistan skipper Azhar Ali believes Somerset possess “tremendous ability in all formats” but he is doubly determined to help the west country outfit claim their maiden County Championship title.
Azhar scored 402 runs at an average of 33.50 last summer, but couldn’t drive Somerset past champions Surrey, with the county finishing runners-up for the second time in three years.
The 34-year-old is available for the duration of both the Specsavers County Championship and the Royal London One-Day Cup, having retired from ODI cricket.
