Pakistan team skipper, Babar Azam, faced criticism from his own fans after he shared a video of himself riding a flashy sports bike on the streets of Lahore.

Fans emphasized the importance of prioritizing Babar’s well-being and ensuring his availability for crucial matches. Babar meanwhile enjoyed a thrilling ride in the streets of Lahore as he shared the clip with the caption, β€œReady, set, GO!”





While Babar enjoyed his time off the pitch following Pakistan’s impressive 4-1 ODI series victory over New Zealand, the controversy surrounding Pakistan’s participation in the Asia Cup 2023 and the ODI World Cup intensified. The BCCI rejected the idea of India touring Pakistan for the Asia Cup, leading to discussions among the presidents of the cricket boards of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan during the IPL 2023 final in Ahmedabad.

We will hold discussions with them for outlining the future course of action in relation to Asia Cup 2023.”

As the debate continues, Babar Azam’s bike stunt incident has reminded fans and authorities alike of the importance of safety and responsible decision-making, especially with crucial tournaments on the horizon.
