Babar Azam filed a defamation notice against a journalist over match-fixing claims during the T20 WC


Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan’s white-ball team, was charged with accepting costly presents as bribes in order to purposefully perform poorly in the T20 World Cup.

After journalist Mubashir Luqman made references to match-fixing suspicions as the reason for Pakistan’s poor performance in the T20 World Cup, Pakistani cricket captain Babar Azam filed a defamation notice against him. Pakistan fell to the US in a huge upset and had to leave the tournament early since they were unable to pursue a run-a-ball target against India.

The notification, which is accessible to some news reports, requests an apology from Luqman within a period of 14 days. A defamation claim worth Rs 1 billion PKR (equivalent to 100 crore PKR or 30 crore INR) is filed.

The notice stated, “Our client reserves the right to institute legal proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction, against you, under the Defamation Ordinance 2002 for damages of Rs 1 Billion,” if you do not tender an unconditional apology and retraction within 14 days. This is in the same manner as you issued the defamatory statements on your YouTube show and with the same prominence.

Luqman has been charged by Babar Azam’s attorney, Qazi Umair Ali, with showing disrespect towards a generational talent who has won numerous games for Pakistan.

“After a long wait, we now have a player of Babar’s caliber. Maybe following Younis Khan. The remarks said are completely nonsensical. Such incidents have previously occurred in Pakistani cricket as well. He did not perform well, indeed. It occurs. Virat Kohli suffered for three years, but during that time, we never heard anything bad about him from India; rather, the whole nation supported him, Ali tells The news reports.

According to Ali, Luqman’s apology is all that the Pakistani captain wants to hear before dragging the matter further.”In Pakistan, a 14-day notice must be given before a case is filed with the court. It’s all well and good if the individual comes out and extends their apology within those 14 days. You can file a case with the court if they don’t, he says.Senior writer Mubashir Luqman made insinuations that Babar Azam was implicated in match-fixing following Pakistan’s World Cup loss.
