Pakistan Fans Fume Over Alcohol Branding On Babar Azam’s Jersey

Pakistan’s prodigal son, Babar Azam, seems to be in a bit of trouble as Pakistan fans are seemingly unhappy with a recent controversy involving the star batsman. Babar Azam returned to Somerset to contest in the Vitality T20 Blast tournament after having had an exceptional outing in the recently concluded England-Pakistan T20I series.

However, Pakistan cricketers and controversy is something that works in tandem. His arrival in the English club has now caused another outrage and this time it is the Pakistan fans who have been outraged by Babar’s actions. However, the controversy this time is a bit different as it has nothing to do with Babar Azam’s gameplay.

The recent controversy revolving around Babar stirred after he contested in his first match of the Vitality T20 Blast tournament, wherein he donned a jersey that had the branding of alcohol. Alcohol is a taboo in Islam and now, Babar finds himself in the midst of a new controversy.

Babar Azam’s Jersey Sparks Controversy As Pakistan Fans Fume In Anger

Babar’s fans in Pakistan were left extremely displeased with the fact that the name of an alcoholic brand was mentioned in Babar’s jersey. Let’s have a look at some of the tweets by angry Pakistan fans.

Later, it was confirmed that it was a mistake that will be rectified in the coming match. Somerset will get that removed from the next game onwards. The sponsors logo for a brand of alcohol on Babar Azam’s Somerset shirt was left on in error. Somerset will be removing the logo before their next match in the T20 Blast,” confirmed Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq.

Babar Azam’s Show With The Bat Continues

Babar Azam, unbothered by all these controversies, had a great game on show in his maiden outing for Somerset in the Vitality T20 Blast against Worcestershire. Batting first, Somerset set a target of 230 runs for Worcestershire to chase. Babar played a scintillating knock and smashed 42 runs off 35 balls, opening the innings. Steven Davies also played a blistering knock and scored 60 runs in just 35 balls.

The chase always proved to be an uphill climb for Worcestershire. However, they came close to the target but couldn’t attain victory as they could only manage to score 213 runs for the loss of seven wickets in their 20 overs.
