Fox Cricket, an Australian news organization, removed its “unsubstantiated” report after receiving criticism from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for publishing unproven “personal claims” against Babar Azam, the captain of the national team.
Following the cricket website’s sharing of the report on its official Twitter account, the board had a response to the information.
According to the report, Fox Cricket accused Babar of sexting “a teammate’s girlfriend.”
The board tweeted, “As our media partner, you might have considered ignoring such unsubstantiated personal allegations which Babar Azam has not deemed worthy of a response.”
The Australian outlet removed the story and erased the tweet after receiving complaints from the PCB.
Azam hasn’t yet offered a response to the predicament. He shared a photo of himself a day ago with the caption, “It doesn’t take too much to be happy.”
