Last night Pakistan Super League (PSL) finally came home!
The opening ceremony took place in Karachi at the National Stadium, followed by a much-awaited match between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United.
While there were plenty of highs and lows from yesterday, one particular cricketer stood out – Azam Khan.
Azam Khan is a Pakistani cricketer who plays for Quetta Gladiators and Pakistan Television. For those who were unaware, he is the son of a former Pakistani cricketer, Moin Khan.
The powerhouse smashed three boundaries and stroked five shots to the fence, scoring 59 off 33 which was enough to make the Gladiators victorious!
Father Moi Khan must be really proud of his boy and surly knew his capabilities. “Azam Khan will be Quetta Gladiators’ trump card in HBL PSL 5,” Moin Khan – coach of the defending champions – was reported to have predicted about his son earlier this week.
After watching his mind-blowing performance, netizens were unable to keep calm and took it to Twitter to express their feelings.

Azam has shown his trolls and those who went against him that weight has nothing to do with your passion for the game.
If you have a fire that ignites within, then you can conquer every peak that comes your way.
Bravo Azam! We are very proud of you!
