Pakistan six-hitting entertainer Shahid Afridi said wicketkeeper-batsman Azam Khan doesn’t deserve to be in the national team right now.

His comments come after Azam was removed from the T20 World Cup squad in favour of fellow wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed.

Initially, Azam got the nod over Sarfaraz before being replaced.

In the National T20 Cup, Azam, the 23-year-old son of former Pakistan captain Moin Khan, scored 150 runs in 10 matches for Southern Punjab at an average of 16.66 and a strike-rate of 133.92.

“No, he [Azam Khan] should not be part of the side right now,” Afridi said during a live session on his YouTube channel as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.

Pakistan T20 World Cup Squad: Babar Azam (c), Shadab Khan (vc), Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wk), Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shoaib Malik

  2. Azam Khan needs to improve his hitting power & it should have consistency in his batting Av. Of 16 runs per match is not good enough … He should wait for his turn

  3. No one talks about Asif Ali and Shadab khan. Why they are in the squad. Same is with Mohd Hafeez .pakistan’s selectors and experts ruin pakistan cricket team. These three players are good for nothingbut no one says anything about their selection. Their T20I and domestic performance including PSL are all void, however they are in the team no one dares to quistion tbeir selection…

  4. First of all I am very disappointed to have Sarfaraz Ahmed in this wt20 series.
    Looking at his unprofessional attitude, behavior, actions and shouting and making faces like irritated personality.
    I love see Pakistan wins all the way lakin having him is the Sign of very disappointing news. 😞
    Sarfaraz please be more respectful and cheerful rather than a loser attitude.
