Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Moin Khan said to ask the chief selector if his son Azam will return to the national team in the near future.
Moin had been referring to Mohammad Wasim, who was the chief selector until recently being removed.
Azam, a 24-year-old big-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman, played three T20Is for Pakistan in July 2021, but has not been picked since then.
With Wasim gone, ex-Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has taken over as interim chief selector.
This has raised speculation about whether big changes will be made to the team in the coming weeks.
However, Moin noted that it is impossible to know what the future holds and ultimately, Azam will come to know where he stands in regard to making his international comeback.
“Now, [only] the chief selector or Azam himself knows about his return to the national side,” the Quetta Gladiators head coach told A Sports.
