New Delhi: Pakistan skipper Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan became the first cricketers to attend Harvard’s executive education programme on the Business of Entertainment, Media, and Sports. The program was scheduled in Boston, Massachusetts from May 31 to June 3. The Pakistan cricketers joined the likes of top sportspersons, including Kaka, Edwin van der Sar, Gerard Pique, Oliver Kahn; NBA stars like Dirk Nowitzki, Chris Paul and Paul Gasol who have pursued the course. Several videos and pictures of the Pakistan duo are circulating on social media where the players can be seen having a great time in the US.
A video of Mohammad Rizwan is going viral on social media where the Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter stopped his car and offered Namaz on the streets of the US. Rizwan is one of the most humble cricketers around. He recently extended his condolence to the victims of the tragic train accident in Odisha, India.
Taking to Twitter, Rizwan wrote, “Loss of human lives is always painful as we are all one ummah. My heart and prayers goes to the people affected by the train accident in India.”
Speaking about Pakistan, the Men in Green are likely to pull out of the Asia Cup 2023 after their proposed hybrid model was rejected by the BCCI and member countries of the ACC. As per reports, Pakistan is planning to stage a tri-series during the Asia Cup window. The rejection also puts Pakistan’s participation in the ODI World Cup in India in doubt. The PCB has always maintained that if the Asia Cup is moved out of Pakistan under pressure from the BCCI, they will not tour India for the ODI World Cup.
