Moin Khan, the wicket-keeper-batsman, was the hero of many successes of the Pakistan team in the nineties. Moin was very popular with the audience at that time. Moin’s son, who is known for his stormy batting and quick running, is also setting foot in the highest level of cricket. Moin’s son Azam Khan has been named in Pakistan’s T20 squad for the first time.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced three teams for the tour of England and the West Indies on Friday (June 4). Azam Khan’s arrival in the T20 team is a big surprise. Azam is also a keeper-batsman. However, in domestic cricket, he has come to the fore for mercurial batting.
Azam Khan has opened the door for the national team by batting brilliantly in the PSL for Quetta Gladiators and in the National T20 Cup for Sindh. His devastating batting has come to the notice of Pakistan’s selectors. The 22-year-old right-handed batsman has a strike rate of 156.41 in T20.
Pakistan will travel to England on June 25 to play ODIs and T20s. The three-match ODI series will start on July 7. The three-match T20 series will be played from July 16. Babar Azam’s team will play five T20s and two Tests in the West Indies from England. The T20 series in the Caribbean starts on July 26. The two Tests will be from August 12 and 20.
