The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to revoke the 50% fine imposed on Azam Khan. This decision comes after a thorough examination of the incident where Azam Khan breached Article 2.4 of the PCB’s Code of Conduct during a National T20 Cup match against Lahore Blues.
The PCB, through a concise press release, stated, “Upon careful review, the imposed fine on Azam Khan has been lifted by the Pakistan Cricket Board.” Azam Khan faced the penalty for repeatedly disregarding an umpire’s instructions during the match.
During the National T20 Cup clash at the National Bank Stadium in Karachi, Karachi Whites’ player Azam Khan incurred the fine from match officials. It’s important to note that players and team officials are prohibited from displaying personal messages on their equipment without prior approval from the relevant authorities.
The decision sparked a reaction on Twitter, with fans expressing their opinions on PCB policies, particularly in situations involving players expressing solidarity with causes such as Palestine.
