Babar Azam: Pakistani cricket captain Babar Azam is in the news for a surprising reason ahead of a crucial match against Bangladesh in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. According to sources close to OneCricket, Azam spent Rs 7 lakh on one. The designer for their upcoming wedding is sherwani, a traditional Indian outfit.
The news comes as a surprise as the Pakistani team, which was the world champion in 1992, arrived in Kolkata just a day before the match against Bangladesh.
It is rare for a captain to indulge in wedding shopping during such an important tournament, which can lead to controversy in the cricket world.
Babar Azam’s wedding is set to take place later this year, making his such an expensive shopping time even more unpredictable. Reportedly, Azam bought designer Sherwani from a renowned Indian designer’s boutique, Sabyasachi, who is known for his exquisite bridal and groom attire.
Apart from Sherwani, Azam is said to have bought jewellery worth a considerable amount from a jewellery manufacturing company while resting in a plush room of a five-star hotel.
Preparations for the wedding are in full swing and Azam’s relatives are also engaged in preparations. In the midst of such an important international tournament, the timing of their wedding shopping has sparked a debate about the focus. Babar Azam now finds himself at the centre of attention for both his stylish wedding preparations and the performance of the Pakistan cricket team, making his journey in this World Cup interesting to watch.
