“Everyone keeps talking about fitness, which I agree is important. But, over the years we have had players who are said to be fit but don’t perform.

So I will just say that he’s a match-winner, don’t write him off.”
The former player further added that he adores when people criticize Azam as one can learn his mistakes and work on them. Moin opened up he himself was adhered t immense criticism but tackle it with improvement with time.
“I love when people criticize my son. I believe criticisms will bring the best out of him; it will make him a player.”
