Pakistan recently played Afghanistan in a three-match home T20I series. But, they suffered a 2-1 loss as the Afghans made history. However, many new faces were given a chance in this series after their performances in the PSL 8. But, they failed to replicate such performances and Azam Khan was not an exception also.

In three matches, Azam Khan scored only one run in two matches. So, it was a very disappointing performance from the young wicket-keeper batter and fans were not happy at all. However, his fitness has been a concern since his introduction to cricket. Now, regarding the same matter, the former Pakistan cricketer, Aaqib Javed opened up and that video has now gone viral.

Here is the shared video:

“First at least attain some levels of fitness before playing.” – Aaqib Javed’s dig at Azam Khan

While talking to reporters, he shared his concern about the fitness level of players who are currently representing the Men in Green. Aaqib Javed said: “I am not sure what sort of experiment this was. It’s clear to me that no consideration was taken when selecting the squad for this series about what standard of skills and fitness levels are needed to represent Pakistan“. He further added that he would refuse his teammates to play with the same fitness level as Azam Khan.

“If I was a player in that squad, I would have refused to play with this team. First at least attain some levels of fitness before playing. Hopefully they will have learnt from this,” Aaqib Javed concluded. In the recently concluded Pakistan Super League, Azam Khan was a formidable force with the bat. He was the highest run-scorer for Islamabad United as Azam scored 282 runs in nine innings. He scored those runs at an average of 40.28 and with a strike rate of 161.14. So, fans were not happy with such a harsh comment from the former Pakistan cricketer on the young wicketkeeper batter.    

Here are some tweets shared by fane over the viral video:
