Babar Azam, the current Pakistan cricket captain, became a centre of attention, but this time, for off the field reasons. He was stopped by the Excise officers at the Liberty Chowk in Lahore, who suspected him for a possible traffic violation.
On May 20, the 28-year old’s car was thoroughly checked by the Excise officers, who noticed that the numbers written on the licence plate were quite small. They determined that the number plate didn’t comply with the standard size as per the government regulation and recommended him to replace it at the earliest.
In the meantime, the Excise officers also took a detailed look at Babar Azam’s documentation, which included the vehicle’s registration and tax compliance. After determining that he has fulfilled all his legal obligations, they let him go on his way. The kind and amiable gesture maintained by the number one ODI batter in the world, amidst all the inconvenience, indicates that he is not only a famous personality, but also a responsible citizen of his country.
Furthermore, the Pakistan cricket superstar also took a selfie with the Excise officers before leaving for his destination from the Liberty Chowk. The picture is getting widely circulated on social media and it has gone viral on various platforms as we speak.
Talking about the cricketing exploits of the Pakistan captain, he recently led the national team to a 4-1 ODI series win against New Zealand at home. In the five ODI matches, Babar Azam managed to score 276 runs at 55.20 average and 93.24 strike-rate with two fifties and one hundred.
