NEW DELHI: From being dismissed for a duck in his maiden T20 World Cup outing to being caught eating junk food on the streets of New York after a big defeat against India, the pakistani cricket Azam Khan has been the subject of criticism and trolling from all sides.
Khan's inclusion in the Pakistan team has been questioned by many legendary cricketers and the Pakistani cricket Board was criticized for selecting the legendary Moin Khan's son despite concerns over his fitness and weight.
In the T20 World Cup match against co-hosts USA, Khan batted at number six but was dismissed for a duck on the first ball. The 25-year-old was then ruled out for the next match against India, which Pakistan lost by six runs.

After the match, a video surfaced on social media showing Khan eating street food late at midnight in New York.
Khan has faced widespread criticism on social media platforms for his actions.
Former Pakistan captain and team manager Mohamed Hafeez criticized Khan on Friday, revealing shocking details about him.

Hafeez, who was appointed team manager in November last year, was sacked by the PCB three months later following the team's embarrassing 3-0 Test series defeat to Australia and a 4-1 T20I series defeat against New Zealand.
During his tenure, Hafeez supported Khan in the New Zealand series, but the son of former Pakistan wicketkeeper Moin Khan failed to live up to Hafeez's expectations.
In a show on a local sports channel, Hafeez called Khan unprofessional and said the 25-year-old was not ready to play international cricket.
“(On meeting Azam Khan for the first time) Azam Khan, if you want to play cricket for Pakistan, you have to do two things. Firstly, you have to try your best to be physically fit, which is a requirement at international level, whenever you get a chance, you have to perform. I also want you to work hard on your wicketkeeping abilities, because with your current fitness, you cannot perform in the field. ” said Hazeez while speaking at a local sports club. channel in Pakistan.

“I put Azam Khan in touch with the current Pakistan coach and shared all the plans with him. Irrespective of his weight and body fat level, I told him it doesn't matter to me ;all that mattered to me was that you need to bring your fat level and improve your running abilities. You need to increase your running abilities so that the team balance is not affected during the match. , Hafeez said.
“After assigning him a 6-week program, when Azam Khan appeared, he was still at the same weight and body fat level as he was 6 weeks ago. His running ability was also twice as weak as If the rest of the team could do 2 kilometers in 10 minutes, Azam Khan could only do it in 20 minutes. So I went to talk to him and asked him why he couldn't. 'had not followed the plan and role given to him “I didn't get a response, saying he tried his best but couldn't. It’s unprofessional,” the former Pakistani cricketer said.
“Then Azam Khan got another chance and played three matches. I found out that this guy is not ready to play international cricket. I told him again that if you want to play for Pakistan, you have to do showing more commitment. But I didn't. “I don't see that commitment in him. After three matches, I rested him and informed the selectors of my conclusions concerning him. Now it is up to them whether to play it in future or not,” said an angry Hafeez.
Khan has played 14 T20Is so far and has scored just 88 runs at an average of 8.80.
