Pakistan cricket captain Babar Azam is considering taking legal action against YouTubers and former cricketers who have made defamatory claims against him following the team’s disappointing performance in the T20 World Cup 2024. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is gathering evidence to support a potential lawsuit, as reported by Geo News.

The Pakistan team’s early exit from the tournament sparked widespread criticism, with many targeting Babar Azam, the team’s captain. A coordinated social media campaign allegedly aimed to tarnish his reputation, with several individuals making damaging statements about him. Ahmed Shehzad, a former Pakistan cricketer, went so far as to call Babar Azam a “Fraud King” on a popular TV show, sparking outrage on social media.

PCB is investigating Babar Azam’s concern :

The PCB has taken notice of these incidents and is working to investigate and address the matter. The legal department is collecting evidence and gathering information to build a strong case against those responsible for the defamatory statements.

Meanwhile, several members of the Pakistan team have returned home after the tournament, including Naseem Shah and Usman Khan. However, others, such as Babar Azam, Imad Wasim, Haris Rauf, and Azam Khan, have chosen to extend their stay in the USA.


This development highlights the growing concern over online harassment and defamation in Pakistani cricket. As one of the country’s most successful cricketers, Babar Azam is well within his rights to take legal action against those who have besmirched his reputation. It remains to be seen what steps will be taken next in this matter.
