Journalist Mubasher Lucman accuses Babar, Shaheen, and others of match-fixing

The Pakistani cricket team is under severe criticism following their disappointing exit from the T20 World Cup. In a recent video blog, TV host and journalist Mubasher Lucman leveled serious allegations against the players, suggesting their involvement in match-fixing.

Lucman questioned how Babar Azam could afford an 80 million rupee Audi car, hinting at potential ties to match-fixing. He also implicated several other cricket personalities, including Wahab Riaz, Shahid Afridi, Shaheen Afridi, Inzamam Ul Haq, Saqlain Mushtaq, and Mushtaq Ahmed, accusing them of being involved in match-fixing activities.

According to Lucman, he alleged that Babar XI deliberately lost matches against the USA and India for financial gain, which he linked to their investments in overseas properties. Lucman further claimed that eight players had confessed to intentionally underperforming and used this as leverage to negotiate better contracts with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

These allegations have sparked controversy within the cricket community and raised serious concerns about the integrity of the sport. Lucman’s claims have ignited discussions about transparency and ethical standards in cricket, especially regarding the behavior of players representing their country at the international level.

As of now, the PCB has not issued an official response to these allegations. Nevertheless, the situation underscores the necessity for thorough investigations and stringent accountability measures to uphold the credibility of cricket, a sport cherished by millions worldwide.
