Wicket-keeper batsman of Pakistan cricket team Azam Khan was brutally roasted by fans after his disappointing show against England in the fourth T20I encounter on Thursday. The 25-year-old was dismissed for a duck after facing just 5 deliveries and he even dropped a few easy chances while fielding. Azam has struggled to perform well in recent matches and his poor run ahead of the 2024 T20 World Cup has sparked a lot of outrage from fans. Azam is the son of the former Pakistani captain Moin Khan and his selection for the World Cup was also much discussed by fans.

Defending champions England produced a fine all-round performance as they beat Pakistan by seven wickets at The Oval on Thursday in their final competitive match before beginning the defense of their Twenty20 World Cup title.

England restricted Pakistan to a modest 157 after winning the toss, with a kick Adil Rachidthe player of the match taking 2-27 from his maximum four overs.

They then quickly set off in pursuit while Phil Salt (45 years old) and captain If butler (39) shared a blistering opening stand of 82 in seven overs.

Harry Brook finished the match with a six off Paceman Haris Raufthe pick of the Pakistani attack with 3-38, as England finished with 158-6 to win with more than three overs remaining.

The victory gave England a 2–0 triumph in a four-match T20 series where matches at Headingley and Cardiff were both called off without a ball being bowled.

“We have worked hard in training and there is a good atmosphere in the team,” Buttler told Sky Sports.
