Pakistan captain Babar Azam is facing intense scrutiny after his team’s early exit from the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. However, things went a step further as senior journalist Mubashir Luqman accused Babar Azam of match-fixing, claiming the star cricketer accepted expensive gifts in exchange for losing international matches against lower-ranked teams.

Babar Azam Under Fire

Luqman’s allegations, which went viral on social media, have added fuel to the fire already burning around Babar. The Pakistan team’s dismal performance, including a shocking loss to the USA and a heartbreaking defeat against arch-rivals India, led to their elimination from the tournament.

Relying on the USA to lose against Ireland, Pakistan’s hopes were dashed when rain washed out the game, ending their chances of advancing to the Super 8.

The Pakistan captain has faced a barrage of criticism, with many calling for his removal from the captaincy. However, the situation has taken a dramatic twist with Luqman’s match-fixing accusations.

The Allegations

Mubashir Luqman’s accusations have gone viral, suggesting that Babar Azam received an Audi E-Tron and luxurious properties in Australia and Dubai from questionable sources. Luqman claims Babar’s Audi, supposedly a gift from his brother, actually came from bookies.

“Just a few days ago, Babar Azam received an Audi E-Tron. Babar mentioned that his brother gifted him the car, but I found out his brother does absolutely nothing,” Luqman stated, stirring the pot.

Luqman’s allegations didn’t stop there. He uncovered more sensational claims, linking Babar to a larger scandal that could shake the foundations of cricket in Pakistan.

According to his sources, Babar received these gifts for deliberately losing matches against teams like the USA, Afghanistan, the Netherlands, and Ireland.

“When I inquired about the car, a source told me, ‘If you lose matches against America, Afghanistan, the Netherlands, or Ireland, won’t you get cars, houses in DHA, plots in Australia, and apartments in Dubai?'”


Luqman further exposed the internal workings of the Pakistan team, saying, “Everyone knows who the bookies are in the Pakistan team, who gets along with them, and how Saya Corps has used the players to blackmail PCB and brought the board to its knees.”

“During the last World Cup in India, eight players refused to play, telling others to stand with them, promising increased pay, and all of them got contracts worth 50 lakh.”

Fallout from the Allegations

These allegations have sent shockwaves through the cricketing world. Babar Azam’s future as captain is now uncertain, and the credibility of the Pakistan cricket team is hanging by a thread. Fans and pundits are demanding answers and accountability.

The cricketing community is watching closely to see how these allegations unfold. The future of Babar Azam’s captaincy and the integrity of the Pakistan cricket team are in serious jeopardy.
