The New Zealand vs Pakistan T20I series did not start well with the visitors already losing the series losing three on a trot. The most disappointing thing for the men in green is that all the matches were one sided, where the blackcaps dominated them throughout the game. The Pakistan bowlers and batters were always under the pump throughout the series where their batters failed to make big scores and their bowlers were leaking runs constantly. This is also the worst start for Shaheen Afridi who is the new appointed skipper in the T20 internationals replacing Babar Azam.
The one player who Pakistan were looking to back was 25 yr old Wicketkeeper batter Azam Khan who failed to make an impact in the series. Azam Khan has been known for his big sixes in the T20 format where he has given some great performances in the Pakistan Super League(PSL) and Caribbean Premier League(CPL). However this has been another series where the youngster has not lived up to his potential at all. With just 22 runs from the 3 matches with an average of over 10.
The background music ruins the mood
There was another incident that is not sitting well with the fans which took place during the 3rd T20I vs New Zealand. As Azam khan was entering the ground the theme of WWE superstar Big show playing in the background. The fans have taken offence to this and have started accusing the hosts of body shaming the player. The theme was playing as soon as Azam stepped into the the field where the fans are insinuating that he was being compared to the wrestler who is known for his big size.

We do not know whether this is intentional or not, but it might be the fans just making a big story out of nothing. The music might only be playing because it is a catchy song and it might be just a coincidence which is turning into an unnecessary big issue among people on social media. We hope that the people can just let this go and let the team focus on winning the next two games. These are not big problems, but instead small problems that are trying to be made bigger without any proof.
