Rookie batsman Azam Khan is ecstatic after getting selected in Pakistan T20I squad for England and West Indies tour.

While speaking in a video released by the Quetta Gladiators, Azam revealed how he received the aforementioned news and his initial reaction.

"I was having breakfast when Nabeel [Quetta’s Media Manager] bhai told me about my selection for Pakistan T20I squad. At first I thought he was joking. Then, I left my breakfast and straight away went to my father [Moin Khan] and that was an emotional movie moment," chuckled Azam.

"I wasn’t expecting to be selected so early. I am happy because my hard work for the past year has paid off," he added.

Azam also thanked the Quetta Gladiators management for showing faith in his talent and giving him an opportunity to prove himself in HBL PSL.

"Nadeem Omar, our owner of Quetta Gladiators, supported me a lot and gave me a chance in PSL to show my potential. Sarfaraz [Ahmed] bhai also gave me a golden opportunity to perform at those batting numbers, where I could perform in PSL," he said.

"I will have to increase my efforts because I want to be a consistent member of Pakistan team," he added.
