Azam Khan is batting smoky in PSL
Diet and weight have been discussed more than batting
New Delhi. Pakistan Super League team Islamabad United’s batsman Azam Khan played a blistering inning against Karachi Kings and was added live to a TV show. Shahid Afridi and Misbah-ul-Haq were also present in the program. Afridi praised the batter, but while ending the conversation, he also said that Azam should stop eating burgers. Azam replied without hesitation, come Shahid bhai, let’s eat together. The purpose of writing these lines is to tell that along with the performance of Azam Khan, his weight and fitness are also discussed.
Islamabad United is at number two in the point table of PSL. The team has won 3 out of 4 matches. In this, Azam Khan put 2 matches in the bag of Islamabad. While tearing apart the bowling attack of Karachi Kings led by Mohammad Amir, Azam scored 44 runs in 28 balls. After this, Azam Khan hit 97 runs in 42 balls at a strike rate of 230 against Quetta Gladiators.
didn’t let obesity come in the way
Like his father Moin Khan, Azam hits the ball hard on the side with one knee resting on the ground. There is no such shot that Azam does not play and the reason for this is his obesity. Azam, who once weighed 140 kg, has reduced his weight to 110 kg. Azam says that his weight is not coming in the way of his performance, be it running between the wickets or wicketkeeping.
‘Ranatunga used to enter the field by swallowing sheep’
Even before Azam Khan, many heavyweight cricketers have done wonders. Bypassing the criticisms, he proved himself to be heavy on others in the field. The first name is Arjuna Ranatunga, the most successful captain of Sri Lanka. When he used to play, his weight was around 115 kg. Shane Warne took a jibe at Arjuna Ranatunga’s protruding stomach that he looked as if he had swallowed a whole sheep. Regardless of such things, Ranatunga not only changed the direction of Sri Lankan cricket but also made it the world champion. No one can forget Team India’s defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka in the semi-finals of the 1996 World Cup and Vinod Kambli coming out of the ground crying.

First won the World Cup, then scored a lot of runs
Inzamam-ul-Haq was also targeted by the people regarding his weight. Inzamam’s weight was around 100 kg while playing. In 1992, Inzamam was instrumental in helping Pakistan win the World Cup. In the semi-finals, he snatched the match won by Martin Crowe’s Kiwi team. The former Pakistan captain scored a lot of runs in Test and ODI cricket.
147 kg explosive opener
Rahkeem Cornwall of the West Indies is considered the heaviest cricketer in the world. The weight of all-rounder Rahkeem is 147 kg. Off-spinner Rahkeem is also famous for his explosive batting. Former Bermuda cricketer Dwayne Leverock’s weight was 127 kg. Despite the heavy weight, Dwayne took the catch of Robin Uthappa in the 2007 World Cup by diving in the slip, he surprised everyone. Former England veteran batsman Mike Gatting’s weight was also more than 100 kg.
