Karachi Whites player Azam Khan was fined 50% of the match fee by the match officials for violating PCB’s code of conduct during the National T20 Cup match against Lahore Blues at the National Bank Stadium.

The name of the official who had imposed the fine has not yet been revealed.

There are social media reports that the person in question may be a “candidate” for the “IPL” and at the same time it is also being expressed that he will not be able to get a job over there.

He was of the view that imposition of fine on Azam Khan for having striker on his bat in favour of Palestinian people had hurt the sentiment of Pakistani people.
