Babar Azam, who will be leading the Colombo Strikers in the upcoming Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2023, has made a personal decision based on his religious beliefs to abstain from wearing a jersey featuring the logo of a betting company.
The respected cricketer conveyed his choice to the team management, who have wholeheartedly respected his wishes. Despite the franchise’s association with a betting company, Babar Azam has opted not to showcase their logo on his shirt.
The franchise management has demonstrated their support by making the necessary arrangements to accommodate Babar Azam’s request.
Recently, Babar Azam returned to Pakistan following the completion of the Hajj pilgrimage, which he undertook alongside his mother and teammates. He has now joined the training camp in Karachi to prepare for the upcoming two-match Test series against Sri Lanka.
