    Him playing at number 3 is the definition of nepotism.

    He might actually be a half decent player but when heís primarily a wicket keeper batsmen and averages 11 in List A, itís pretty clear whatís going on.

    Can't say that but he's got some elegance and class in his batting and he's a power hitter as well, I think he will be better than Asif Ali for sure if he can adjust to pace bowling as currently he is twice a player as Asif Ali against spin bowling.

    He is definitely out of shape but I would give him a proper chance with the bat before writing him off entirely.

    I understand Saud Shakeel not getting a chance as he has a fairly poor T20 record but hopefully in the next game he will get to play that too at his home ground.

    QG have the best management in terms of getting the most out of their players year in year out. The likes of Umar Akmal and Sohail Tanvir failed elsewhere but are showing great form for QG.

    Mohammad Hasnain and Mohammad Nawaz have been good finds as well. Hassan Khan was a good find in the previous edition as well.

    Let's see how he plays in the next game. His fielding is hit or miss however.

    To be fair, the List A sample size is very small. 4 games in which he did not even bat in 1 of them, so it's not conclusive.

    Imam's selection is at worst debatable. Even if the reason was nepotism his record is good enough that there's no way anybody can say that nepotism is the only reason he is playing etc.

    Indeed. No matter what people say about Imam, people forget he has performed in his age groups, and he's not doing to shabbily at international level. He is an opener and its not like we have tons of those. When we saw the team in the U19 wc a few eyars ago and everyone assumed imam baba and sami would eventually make the grade coz they looked decent for U19..so why this nepotism all the time?

    Azam Khan is the biggest ****** since , well im not even sure, Shoaib Malik? Maybe even Nawz sharif himself lol

    both Imam and Azam are nepotism selection; Azam's look worst when you see that he has no domestic record to back up his selection in PSL; Imam's looks worst when you see that he was selected in national team on the basis of nepotism and national team >>> PSL

    There's definitely a positive here, the positive being anyone sitting at home, in their underwear, with a gamepad in one hand and Doritos in the other has a every chance to get chance to play in a tournament and watched by millions and showcase their inabilities to actually bat.

    I would love if he replaces Sarfaraz as a wk batsman. That will teach Sarfaraz a lesson of not selecting players based on nepotism.

    Watched some videos of his batting on YouTube, and I have to admit he looks like a very very clean striker.

    Obviously needs to get fitter if he wants to become a successful international cricketer but it's hard to question his batting talent if you watch those videos.

    ^Thats Chris Gaylesque strength, those are huge effortless sixes. No nepotism I see here, can come in national side if he sort out his glaring issues

    He looks really overweight. I am sure Inzi has been giving him some culinary lessons!!

    Well if Adnan Sami Khan can lose excess Body Fat, all is not lost for Azam Khan. Lets hope he does not lose his big hitting abilities in the process

    I just don't understand how he can be THAT FAT given he is the son of a former cricketer? And it's not like his dad was fat.

    I have always rated this azam khan he just needs to work a little more on his weight and fitness. Man's a serious striker of a cricket ball and can be a good replacement for sarfraz in a couple of years time. Guys need to give the chap a break.

    For a large guy, he seems like a decent enough athlete. Sure can run.
