Abdul Razzaq, former Pakistani cricketer, is facing backlash for a comment involving Bollywood actress Aiswarya Rai Bachchan’s name at a press event. During an interaction with Pakistani media about the team’s performance in the ongoing World Cup 2023 campaign, Razzaq’s comments targeting the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have infuriated fans.
Razzaq’s comment, made while sitting next to Shahid Afridi, has sparked outrage, with fans referring to his behavior as ‘shameful.’
Pakistan, initially favorites, are out of the tournament after a defeat to defending champions England. Only four teams remain in the race to win the World Cup trophy: India, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa.
The semi-final stage will begin tomorrow, with India facing New Zealand at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The second semi-final will be played between Australia and South Africa at Eden Garden in Kolkata on 16 November.
