Profile

A tall, strong left-arm fast bowler, was rushed into Test cricket regardless of his limited first-class experience, due to a shin injury to Pakistan's spearhead, Imran Khan. Azeem was born with two fingers missing on his right hand but despite his handicap, he performed commendably in the Test arena. His debut was against India in 1983-84 and on the subsequent tour of Australia, he bowled marathon spells, taking 19 wickets with five-wicket hauls at Adelaide and Perth. In the home series against India he took a marvelous 6 for 46 at Lahore on a lifeless pitch. He then took 22 wickets in the six consecutive Tests against the Kiwis. He gave way to left-arm paceman, Wasim Akram. In the 18 Tests Azeem played, he took 63 wickets.
