Azam Khan has been facing criticism across social media platforms since the beginning of the T20I series between Pakistan and New Zealand. The fans and critics trolled him for his below par performance and fitness level.

The trolling reached at a new level during the third T20I when a Disc Jockey (DJ) at the University Oval Stadium took dig at Azam Khan during his entrance.

As the 25-year-old cricketer walked to the crease, the DJ chose to play the iconic theme song of former WWE wrestler, The Big Show.

The viral video capturing the moment shows the Big Show’s theme song “here’s the big show” playing in the background as Azam Khan made his way to bat.

At the time of Azam Khan’s arrival, Pakistan was standing at 95/3, with hopes resting on him and Babar Azam. However, Azam Khan’s stint at the crease was short-lived as he was dismissed by Matt Henry after contributing just 10 runs.

While the DJ’s playful gesture might have intended to inject some fun into the match atmosphere, it didn’t sit well with some Pakistan fans. Many believed that the move was a form of body-shaming, drawing an unnecessary comparison between the burly batter Azam Khan and the WWE legend, The Big Show.

The incident has stirred controversy, with fans expressing their displeasure on social media. Some even called upon the Pakistan Cricket Board to address the matter with their counterparts in the New Zealand Cricket Board.
