Senior Pakistan journalist Mubashir Luqman has brought allegations of match-fixing against captain Babar Azam after his team crashed out of the T20 World Cup 2024 in the group stage.

He has levelled some serious allegations against Babar in particular, claiming that the Pakistan captain received expensive gifts in return for losing international matches.

According to Luqman, Babar’s Audi E-Tron, which the cricketer said was a gift from his brother, was acquired from questionable bookies while he also got apartments in Australia and Dubai.

Luqmans suspicions rose after Pakistan lost against USA and won a close game against Ireland before making another premature exit from a World Cup.’

A video of Luqman speaking on a podcast and levelling the allegations against Babar has reportedly gone viral over various social media platforms.

Luqman also slammed former skipper Shaheen Shah Afridi for his poor performance in the T20 World Cup.

Meanwhile,  several Pakistan cricket fans have urged the PCB to investigate the allegations made by Luqman.
