Pakistan star Azam Khan involved in 'heated moment' with fan following golden duck against USA

PTC News Desk: Azam Khan, the batsman for Pakistan's cricket team, got into a violent argument with a spectator on Thursday during the T20 World Cup 2024 match against the United States after he was dismissed for a golden duck. Azam, who has recently struggled with form, could not impress once more as Nosthush Kenjige trapped him LBW for zero runs. Azam was spotted making exaggerated faces and even staring at a fan as he made his way back to the pavilion.

The precise cause of the incident was unknown, despite the fact that the photo of it became viral. Azam, the son of former Pakistan captain Moin Khan, was mercilessly mocked on social media, with numerous individuals bringing up the topic of "nepotism."


The first major upset of the 2018 T20 World Cup was caused on Thursday by the newcomers USA, who shocked the reigning champions Pakistan via the Super Over.

Pakistan, asked to bat first, finished the 20 overs allowed with 159 for seven. After putting on a great display, the USA finished at 159 for three.

Pakistan could only manage 13 for one in the Super Over, while the USA hammered 18 runs for the loss of one wicket.

The outcome is similar to Pakistan's devastating defeat by Ireland in the 2007 ODI World Cup. At the time, Ireland was participating in its first World Cup.

Monank Patel, the captain, scored a flawless 50 off of 38 balls. In 26 balls, Andries Gous scored 35 points. The MVP of the USA's opening-round victory over Canada, Aaron Jones, was still undefeated at 36 off 26 balls.

Earlier, Shadab Khan added 40 and Pakistan's captain Babar Azam hit 44 to lead the team. With three wickets for thirty runs, Nosthush Kenjige was the most effective bowler for the USA.

The United States of America began the campaign with a victory over Canada, and their triumph on Thursday enabled them not only move up the table but also write history.
