The younger brother of Test cricketer Shafqat Rana and umpire Shakoor Rana, Azmat was a consistent left-hand batsman who played with steady success in Pakistan domestic cricket. Like many others, he played just once for Pakistan. He was selected against Australia at Lahore in 1979-80 and scored 49 in his only innings. He could not make further inroads for selection into the Pakistan team due to the strong batting line-up but still continued to shine on the domestic front.
