Azhar will put up his bat that he used to score an unbeaten triple-century against West Indies during the 2016 series in the UAE.
The 35-year-old will also auction off his playing jersey from Pakistan's title-winning 2017 Champions Trophy campaign.
Azhar wrote on Twitter: "I put 2 of my closest belongings on auction with base price of 1 million PKR each to support people suffering due to ongoing crisis.

"The shirt is from 2017 Champions Trophy which we won, it has the signature of all the players which were present in the squad," Ali said in a video posted on Twitter.
"Both these things are close to my heart but if it can be used in the difficult times for the benefit of the people I will more than happy."
