Fakhar Zaman shuts down nepotism claims against teammate Azam Khan

Fakhar Zaman comes to the aid of fellow teammate Azam Khan who suffers constant trolling on social media or nepotism for being Moin Khan's son.

Pakistan Cricket Team star Azam Khan has come under the scanner of the fans. The keeper-batter has often been claimed to be a product of nepotism in the Pakistan Cricket Team. However, Fakhar Zaman has now come to the rescue of his teammate. The ace batter has hit back at the media claiming to do a little bit of research about the the effort and struggle done by Azam Khan.

Pakistan Cricket Team fans had flooded social media slandering Azam Khan. They went on to cite nepotism claiming that Azam is getting a chance in the team as his father is Moin Khan.

But Pakistan top order batter Fakhar Zaman has come to the aid of his teammate. He hit back at the trolls and the media for the nepotism claims. Zaman went on to reveal that Azam Khan’s journey has been filled with struggles. And the player himself has made it to the team based on his incredible journey and talent.

“I can also say that you’ve came here by recommendation, but it would be a good thing if you see how a player has come, how much struggle he has gone through. In my opinion, you should also come after doing a little research first,” Fakhar said.

Currently, Azam Khan is in England to take part in the ENG vs PAK T20I series, ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup. And he has been named in the 15-member squad.

Why Nepotism?

Since Azam Khan is the son of former Pakistan Cricketer Moin Khan, fans have often slandered Azam. While fans have continued to troll Azam, the Men in Green have not taken the matter lightly. The keeper batter has already featured 11 times for Pakistan in the shortest format of the game.

Had nepotism been the case, the n playing more than 10 games for the nation would be a huge deal. In fact, the 25-year old also has found his name in the T20 World Cup squad and will be traveling to USA. Yet to shine bright, Azam will definitely take the opportunity to make his name in the ICC event.

Pakistan Squad for ICC T20 World Cup: Babar Azam (captain), Abrar Ahmed, Azam Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Abbas Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah, Saim Ayub, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Usman Khan
