“Criticism will come but….”: Misbah ul Haq to Azam Khan

Srinagar: Former Pakistan cricket team captain has asked batter Azam Khan to be mentally strong and counter criticism with his performances.

Azam Khan has been under criticism due to his performance lately as well as his fitness.

“There was a time when he reduced his weight, did training and delivered performances. Nowadays, I have observed that the discipline he had in the past has been given up and I can see that he has increased his body weight. So, he also needs to think about it,” Misbah said during a show.

“If there are no performances, criticism will come and even a player like Virat Kohli gets criticised. He needs to get mentally stronger and criticism will come but he should just stay focused for the longer run,” he added.

Azam’s record in T20I cricket has been poor with just 88 runs in 12 innings at an average of just 9.78.

Pakistan’s squad for T20 World Cup 2024:
Babar Azam (c), Saim Ayub, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Azam Khan (wk), Usman Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Abbas Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Abrar Ahmed.
