Azam Khan sets the stage on fire with rollicking hits

The opening match of the fifth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) was set alight by tremendous pyrotechnics from the bat of young Azam Khan. The bulky right-handed batsman let his bat do the talking amidst the relentless backlash.

Azam, son of the Gladiators head coach Moin Khan, had attracted a lot of criticism for his selection in the draft. It was deemed as a sign of blatant nepotism but he has repaid the faith bestowed on him by the selectors, by smacking a plethora of hits in his match-winning knock.

Playing just the second T20 match of his career, Azam launched spectacular strokes that consistently reached the boundary fence. The 21-year-old struck three sixes and five fours in his brilliant contribution of 59 from 33 deliveries.
