The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) fined Azam Khan for displaying a Palestinian flag on his bat during a match, but later withdrew the fine. Khan, playing for Karachi Whites, was fined 50% of his match fee for breaking the rules by displaying the flag without approval. However, the PCB reviewed the decision and waived off the fine. The board stated that players are not allowed to display personal messages on their equipment without approval. The decision to fine Khan had sparked criticism on social media, with journalist Hamid Mir also seeking clarity on the issue. The PCB’s decision to fine the cricketer for showing solidarity with Palestine was questioned, and the board faced backlash for the action. The board stated that Khan had violated the PCB Code of Conduct for players by not complying with the umpire’s directive during the match. Despite the initial controversy, the PCB later retracted the fine imposed on Khan for displaying the Palestinian flag on his bat during the match.
