Pakistani cricketer Azam Khan is facing a social media backlash after a video of him enjoying street food in New York went viral. This video emerged following Pakistan’s disappointing 6-run loss to India in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan suffered their second consecutive defeat in the tournament, failing to chase a modest target of 120 runs against India at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. Despite being expected to win after bowling India out for 119 runs, Pakistan’s batting collapsed under pressure, with Jasprit Bumrah’s impressive bowling leading India to victory.

Amidst widespread criticism of Pakistan’s poor performance, Azam’s video has sparked further outrage. He is often criticized for his fitness and inconsistent batting. Although the video’s timing is unconfirmed, many believe it was taken after the loss to India, leading to a flood of negative comments.

Azam Khan Was Not Part of India vs Pakistan Playing XI

Azam was not part of the playing XI against India, having been dropped after scoring a duck in the tournament opener against the USA. Pakistan lost that match in a Super Over and then again to India, putting them at risk of early elimination from the T20 World Cup 2024.

Azam’s potential return to the team for Pakistan’s next game against Canada on Tuesday, June 11, is uncertain. This match is crucial for Pakistan, as a loss would eliminate them from the tournament. To advance to the Super Eight, Pakistan must win both of their remaining matches.
