Azam Khan keeps attracting attention to himself with his aggressive playing style. He struck an amazing 42-ball 97 for his club Islamabad United against Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League on Friday. His inning had nine fours, eight sixes, and eight sixes. Azam Khan asserted that Australian cricketer Tim David, not the India star, is his role model when contrasted to another T20 great, Suryakumar Yadav. The Pakistani player said that he could more accurately compare David’s game to his own since in franchise cricket, he and David came out to bat at similar times.
You are aware of how difficult the situation is from where I bat. If the score is around 40 for four, 180 or 160 for two, you must go complete the game. It’s a really difficult job. But now more than ever, Tim David encourages me. I play the same position as him, so I am familiar with and understand his hitting role. He hits enormous home runs. Suryakumar regularly plays one down, which is akin to top order, according to Azam’s observation on paktv.tv.
Azam Khan and Pakistani spinner Naseem Shah joked about during a Bangladesh Premier League match last month.

When compared to Suryakumar Yadav, another legend of the T20 format, Azam Khan claimed that Australian cricketer Tim David, not the India star, is his role model. The Pakistani player claimed that because David and he both came out to bat at around the same times during franchise cricket, he could more fairly compare David’s performance to his own.
