    Just saw this video clip of Azam Khan's batting, and I can tell you he looks impressive. He looks so composed at the crease, playing spin so well, touch of Inzamam in him, and boy, he is a powerful striker of the ball. He should play this game. Quetta mustn't waste him.

    Literally only good shot he played was that straight six. One of the worst montages I have ever watched

    Cant play fast bowling

    Good runner between the wickets.

    Doesn't have any footwork.

    And with that much body fat, he can't survive in PSL or make it to international level.

    Lucky to be there due to his dad... Otherwise nothing impressive about his strokeplay.

    Touted as the trump card by Quetta management, Azam Khan announced himself as the next big thing from Pakistan in the opening game of PSL 2020.

    Share your thoughts about this budding youngsta beauty.

    For your viewing pleasure:



    Primarily scored towards the on side and hardly played anything towards the covers. But it could have been mainly due to Islamabad United bowlers bowling on a wrong line to him.

    Typical knee jerk reaction to over hype a third class player.

    But Weight wise ?
    Yes, definitely BIG thing - matter of fact, HUGE THING!

    wrong field placing by Shahab otherwise Azam gave a few nice n easy chances in the outfield in the start of his innings - he could hardly send the ball to the boundary in the start. Many teams would have gotten him under 10.

    Can hardly hit on off side ; HOWEVER: he could be a good T20 batsman - but what he is definitely NOT, is a quick n agile fielder.

    Moin khan ko thori Sharam aani chahiyay - agar coach ka beyta aisaa hai tou baqi log kia follow karengey.

    Needs to lose at least 80 pounds to look like a sportsman.

    Powerful hitting, boy has strong arms. He needs to lose a lot weight to seriously become a professional cricketer.

    Not very impressive, majority of the fours were almost catches. But it is too early to judge, so lets see.

    Clears his front leg well and powers the ball. Played some magnificent strokes today. Really hope he reduces weight though.

    “I wanted to get fit because people were calling me over-weight even after I scored some big runs. So I wanted to end that criticism and get fit,”

    “I didn’t knew would I be able to hit same big hits after training as I will lose my power and body might get stiff, but the way Shehzar took me throughout the training was so motivating that I myself was feeling much fitter and more powerful”

    “My ideal is Chris Gayle because the way he hits the boundaries makes me play like him. I had watched him so much that I might have developed his playing style,”

    “Being a son of a cricketer is not my fault and I don’t find a reason to be criticised. Yes, if I hadn’t had the talent and was still in the team then it would have been right but today where I am is because of my talent which surely was built by the help of my father.”

    “I am not allowed to eat any junk food, just the high-protein diet, and black coffee. This is why I lost my 14kg and still want to lose more. I will begin my training where I left after the PSL ends and will not let the people talk negatively about me.”

    I think that's a bit extreme at this point in time but good player nonetheless. Now he needs to play some domestic cricket as well.

    If this was Shahzad or Hafeez you would be praising them to no end.

    You always moan that youngsters are no better than oldies...so you should be happy.

    Nice to see he knows how to pace an innings. Rotates the strike as well. Need to see him get 2 full seasons of FC cricket
