Karachi: Pakistan has included former captain Moin Khan’s son and new player Azam Khan in the T20 squad selected for the tour of England and West Indies. The amazing thing is that Azam Khan has not played much domestic cricket, but still he has got a place in Pakistan’s national team.
Azam Khan in Pakistan team
Azam Khan’s name in the T20 team is shocking because he has played only one first-class match so far. Although he has played 36 T20 matches and his image is that of a batsman who hits big shots. He has played in Pakistan Super League and Sri Lanka Premier League.
Lost 30 kg
This young player had lost 30 kg from his body to become a brilliant cricketer. From the first pictures of Azam Khan, it can also be guessed that he was very heavy earlier, but now he has worked a lot on his fitness. Apart from his impressive performance in the PSL, this young player played 36 T20 matches in domestic cricket and scored runs at a strike rate of over 157.
Giants like Gayle-Steyn have been praised
Questions are being asked everywhere on the selection of Azam, but he has been praised by big players. Azam told after his selection, it is my ideal to learn from players like Chris Gayle. I love interacting with big players because they give you an idea of how much effort they put into playing on the big stage. Chris Gayle has praised my power-hitting. Apart from this, Azam told that he is also a fan of Dale Steyn and this veteran bowler has also praised his game.
