Azam Khan Pakistan Talented wicket-keeper batter recently shared his thoughts on his selection and opportunities in the national team during a video chat with Desert Vipers, alongside veteran cricketer Shoaib Malik.
Azam expressed his frustrations, highlighting the inconsistency in his inclusion and the lack of faith shown in his abilities.
“I’ve always believed that when I play league cricket, I get ample opportunities because they trust me to win games. If doubts are cast on my abilities at this level, then I’ll find my own way,” Azam Khan Pakistan wicket-keeper batter stated.
Addressing the issue of not being given enough chances, Azam mentioned, “In the past 4 years, I’ve made a comeback three times but never played a full series. It hurts me that either I get a full series to prove myself or be left out altogether. Being stuck in the middle is regrettable.”
The 25-year-old emphasized that he approaches every game with full dedication but feels demoralized when doubts arise within the national setup. He also compared his experiences with foreign coaches to those within the Pakistan team, noting a difference in treatment.
“When I play under foreign coaches, they never make me doubt myself. However, when I play for Pakistan, I feel lacking because I know my worth. It’s frustrating when doubts are cast upon my abilities,” Azam concluded.
