Azhar Mahmood false allegations

Former Pakistani cricketer and coach Azhar Mahmood has condemned the false allegations surrounding his team following Pakistan’s disappointing exit from the T20 World Cup. Mahmood announced his intention to take legal action against those spreading misinformation, emphasizing that such behavior for personal gain is unacceptable and harmful.

Social media claims had alleged that the families of players and coaching staff traveled to the United States at the expense of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Mahmood expressed his frustration, stressing that these baseless claims are not only untrue but also damaging.

“Speaking without evidence and misconstruing facts is a criminal offense, and those engaging in such behavior will be dealt with through legal action,” Mahmood wrote on X.

He criticized individuals who spread false information to boost their follower count or grab media attention. Mahmood emphasized that he would seek legal advice and take strict measures against those making false allegations against him and his family. He urged everyone to stop engaging with or promoting these harmful narratives, calling for an end to the spread of misinformation in the media.

“Chasing more followers and media attention by spreading lies is totally unacceptable. I will be seeking legal advice and taking strict action against those responsible for making these false allegations against me and my family. We will not discuss this matter further on social media. I urge everyone to avoid engaging with or spreading these harmful narratives as it is crucial to end such behavior in our media culture,” he added.

In a related development, Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam is also reportedly considering legal action against YouTubers and former players who accused him of misconduct during the T20 World Cup. Babar faced heavy criticism after Pakistan’s early exit from the tournament, which prevented them from reaching the Super Eight stage.
