Squash Player from Pakistan, Hamza, gets Banned

The three international competitions in October, December, and February 2023 that Hamza Khan did not attend.

The Professional Squash Association (PSA) has barred Hamza Khan from competing in any international competitions for the next thirteen weeks because he did not live up to the commitments he made due to the fact that he was performing duties for his country and did not receive his passport in time to participate in PSA competitions.

Since he has been disqualified from the previous four international competitions for which he had submitted an entry or received a wildcard, The former winner of the British Junior Open has now been disqualified from participation in any and all PSA competitions until the 15th of May, according to a well-informed source who spoke with ‘The News.’ This ban comes as a result of the fact that he was given.

Hamza did not compete in any international competitions during the months of October, December, or February 2023 since he was given a wild card into the $70,000 Pittsburg Open tournament.

Every time the Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) had his passport at Asian Junior or senior Team event in Chennai (India), or while he was competing for Pakistan in Asian competitions, he was required to show proof of citizenship.

Because of the suspension, the player, who is only 18 years old, will have to begin his pro career from the very beginning in just over two months.

Over all of these years, he was compelled to compete in junior events, which, from all appearances, slowed down his advancement to a significant level.

Because of the extraordinary efforts that have been made by Hamza’s uncle Shahid Zaman, he was given a wildcard to participate in the Pittsburgh Open, which took place in February there in the United States.

I’ve arranged something out of the ordinary and been successful in obtaining a wildcard for Hamza, who is in dire need of competing in worldwide senior circuit championships in order to advance his professional life as a player. Without Hamza, Pakistan may have easily won the junior Asian championship. What he needs most is experience competing on a more global level in professionalism. I was able to secure a wildcard spot for him in such a prestigious competition by utilizing my network. Former World No. 14 Shahid Zaman recently commented to “The News” that the tournament organizers made the difficult decision to bar him from participation in the Grade I competition.

He went on to say that these athletes would not make any advancement the senior positions until they continued to compete at the junior level.

He went on to say that it is imperative for talents like Noor Zaman and Hamza to focus their efforts on the senior circuit.

According to him, even the natives in the United States have a hard time getting wildcards, but I was able to get one for Hamza because he so desperately needs experience playing at an international level in order to develop into a professional player.

The Egyptians, who currently dominate the sport of squash on a global scale, send very few of their junior players to compete in international competitions. When a player reaches a goal or fails to reach a goal, the player is replaced by the next player in the rotation.
