Moin Khan Wants Azam Khan to play for Another Team in PSL

Moin Khan Wants Azam Khan to play for Another Team in PSL:

In a recent interview with Syed Yahyah Hussain, Nadeem Omar, the owner of PSL franchise Quetta Gladiators revealed some details regarding Azam Khan. Azam Khan has been a prominent candidate for the backup wicket keeper choice in the Pakistan T20I squad. However prior to the World T20, the selectors excluded his name and added Sarfaraz Ahmed in the World T20 Squad of Pakistan. Azam doesn’t get a chance to play as wicket keeper in PSL because of the fact that he’s in a team which already has Sarfaraz Ahmed. Since Sarfaraz Ahmed is the captain of Quetta Gladiators, its hard for Azam to keep the wickets in Sarfaraz’s presence.

Nadeem Omar revealed that Moin Khan, the father of Azam Khan and Head Coach of Quetta Gladiators told Nadeem Omar to let go Azam Khan. Moin wished that Azam plays for any other team in the PSL so that he gets a chance as wicket keeper batsman. However the owner Nadeem Omar wants to keep Azam Khan. ‘I want Azam Khan to prove himself as a hard hitting batsman. I am not letting him go for 2/3 years. Pakistan needs a hard hitting batsman’, Nadeem Omar stated.

Nadeem Omar also said that in the presence of Mohammad Rizwan in the national side, Azam will always be a second choice keeper. So Nadeem thinks that it is better for Azam Khan to prove himself as a batsman first.
