Pakistan batter Azam Khan's shot nearly hit opener Saim Ayub and batting coach Mohammad Yousuf during a practice session before the Ireland and England T20I series.

The Men in Green underwent three days of training at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore prior to the Ireland series and departed the country earlier today.

Azam, renowned for his aggressive batting style, struck a shot directly towards two team members - Batting coach Mohammad Yousuf and opener Saim Ayub, who were stationed behind the wickets. 

Both individuals ended up on the ground due to the force of the ball coming towards them.


It must be noted Pakistan will play a total of seven T20Is against Ireland and England this month.

The Men in Green will play three T20Is in Ireland, followed by four in England. After the England series, Pakistan will leave for the United States to feature in the T20 World Cup.

The 18-player squad, which was announced for Ireland and England T20Is, will be reduced to 15 players for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 after the first T20I against England on May 22.
