Pakistan cricket fans expressed their anger after the Green Shirts faced humiliating defeat at the hands of the United States in their first T20 World Cup match on Thursday. 

Speaking to Geo News after the disappointing loss, the fans lambasted the Pakistan's selection committee for selecting Azam Khan in the mega tournament. 

One of the spectators said that the team has disappointed them today. 

"Azam Khan has no place in the team but they are still including him in the team. He doesn't know fielding and he got out on the first ball," he said.
