Babar Azam has been accused of allegedly sexting a Pakistan teammate's girlfriend.

News publications The Hindustan Times and Fox Sports Australia, have reported that the accusations began on Twitter, first appearing on Twitter parody pages before respected subcontinent journalists picked it up. The allegations have since been reported on by Pakistani and Indian news publications.

On Twitter, the hashtag #StayStrongBabarAzam has been trending internationally since the alleged story broke..

The allegations are that Pakistan captain Babar Azam promised a woman that her boyfriend's (Azam's teammate) place in the national side was safe, if she continued the sext with him.

Unfortunately for Azam, this is not the first off-field controversy he has faced. In 2020, a case was filed against him in the Lahore High Court for blackmail and harassment charges.

The No. 1 ranked ODI batter is seemingly current.y in Sydney, Australia on a holiday away from the Pakistan team. He is yet to give a statement regarding the accusations.
