Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Azam Khan scored his maiden T20 hundred in Match No.6 of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) match between Khulna Tigers and Chattogram Challengers at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.

Khan scored his hundred off 57 balls as the Tigers racked up a decent score of 178 for the loss of five wickets after being put in to bat first. Khan came to bat after Khulna lost the crucial wickets of Sharjeel Khan and Habibur Rahman Sohan in the fourth over.

From there on, Azam put on 92 runs for the third wicket with Tamim Iqbal, who scored 40 runs off 37 balls before getting out to spinner Vijaykanth Viyaskanth.

Thereafter, Khan deposited fast bowler Mrittunjoy Chowdhury for a four at the deep mid-wicket boundary, after which he got to his hundred with a massive six. Wahab Riaz, who was at the non-striker’s end, embraced Azam, who looked at his very best.

Azam didn’t stop there and finished the innings off with another six off Mrittunjoy. The right-handed batter stayed unbeaten on 109 runs off 58 balls with nine fours and as many as eight sixes.
