Babar Azam’s younger brother is training at the National High-Performance Center (NHPC) in Lahore, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Only international Pakistan players, first-class players, and junior cricketers are permitted to train at the NHPC, according to PCB norms.
Safeer Azam, Babar’s younger brother, was filmed batting in the nets at NHPC under Babar’s supervision, which sparked outrage on social media. Former Pakistan bowler Tanveer Ahmed criticised the incident, saying that if Safeer is permitted to use the facilities, then every Pakistani should be able to use them as well.
The issue was brought to the attention of the PCB’s higher-ups, who reminded Babar of the NHPC’s standards.
“Babar and his brother arrived at the centre three or four days before the conditioning camp began. And his brother afterwards held nets that were brought to the board’s attention,” a source on the PCB said.
According to reports, the PCB worked out an internal solution with Pakistan’s all-format skipper. Babar agreed with the PCB and promised that the incident would never happen again.
Babar is now in the NHPC conditioning camp with the PCB in preparation for the upcoming three-match ODI series against the West Indies. The great batter will lead the team in the three-match series, which will be contested in Rawalpindi on June 8, 10, and 12.
