Pakistan sports journalist Doctor Nouman Niaz has claimed that former captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Babar Azam, rejected an offer worth 450,000 Australian dollars from Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL).
While talking to Pakistan former wicketkeeper batsman Rashid Latif, Niaz said in a live stream on YouTube channel ‘Caught Behind’, “I want to mention that Babar Azam has rejected Australian $450,000 offer from Big Bash League (BBL), and we should acknowledge that this is the type of players Pakistan has, who play for their country.”
Which BBL team offered Babar Azam AUD 450,000? Babar Azam is busy with Pakistan from Dec 6 till Jan 21 for Australia Tests and New Zealand T20Is, and the BBL is played from Dec 7 till Jan 24. Was Babar only going to play two playoffs? Strange! #BBL13 pic.twitter.com/20mVoYFceO— Farid Khan (@_FaridKhan) November 28, 2023
However Babar Azam has not mentioned such an offer or confirmed whether he received it.
