Pakistan’s Captain Babar Azam lands himself in a new controversy after his brother Safeer Azam posted a video on social media. In the video he can be spotted practising in the nets of the high-performance centre(HPC) in Lahore. The social media post caused a ruckus as the PCB policies governing its high-performance centre. The policies clearly state that only Pakistan players, first-class players or junior cricketers can use the facilities and staff at the HPC with permission of the authorities.
“Babar came to the centre three-four days back with his brother and this was before the conditioning camp had begun. And his brother later held nets which was brought to the notice of the board,”A RELIABLE SOURCE IN THE PCB SAID.
The source acknowledged that since no Pakistan player was allowed to bring any of his relatives or friends to the HPC for practice. So Babar was politely reminded about his indiscretion and told to not repeat it.
“He is our national team captain and the matter was handled in a manner where he was politely reminded about the situation and he agreed,”THE SOURCE SAID.
The Video which caused the ruckus
Babar’s brother Safeer posted a video of him. He can spotted batting in the nets of the HPC under the watchful eyes of Babar. In the video, Safeer was seen batting against Pakistan pacer Shahnawaz Dahani.
Babar has started having daily nets at the HPC in preparation for the coming international season. Additionally, PCB is also inviting around 60 players in two batches to attend two-week conditioning camps to prepare for the new season.
