PCB Lifts Fine on Azam Khan for Displaying Palestine Flag on Bat

1 min read

The Pakistan Cricket Board has waived off the 50% match fee fine for Azam Khan’s displaying of the Palestine flag on his bat during the National T20 Cup in Karachi. Azam, playing for Karachi Whites, was fined 50% of his match fee by the PCB match referee for refusing to remove the Palestine flag sticker from his bat during a match. The PCB did not give a reason for waiving off the fine, nor did it explain whether Azam had agreed to remove the sticker for the remaining matches. According to ICC rules, players and team officials are not allowed to display personal messages on their equipment without approval. Azam has appeared in five T20Is for Pakistan and is known for his big-hitting abilities. During the recent ODI World Cup, Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan also tweeted in support of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
