Abdul Razzaq’s Shocking Dig at PCB: Aishwarya Rai Analogy Sparks Backlash

In the wake of Pakistan’s lackluster ICC World Cup 2023 run, former cricketer Abdul Razzaq has ignited a firestorm with a controversial remark, drawing attention not only to the team’s performance but also to the Pakistan Cricket Board’s alleged shortcomings.

During a recent media interaction, Razzaq, flanked by ex-players Shahid Afridi and Umar Gul, raised eyebrows with an unexpected analogy. Criticizing the PCB’s perceived negligence in nurturing players, he asserted, “If you think that by marrying Aishwarya Rai, a good and pious kid would be born, it would never happen.” This unexpected reference to Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai left many in disbelief, further fueled by Afridi’s apparent endorsement through laughter and applause.

Razzaq’s critique extended beyond his eyebrow-raising example. He lauded former captain Younis Khan’s positive intentions, emphasizing the alleged lack of commitment from the current cricket board. This criticism comes amid a wave of former players openly slamming the Babar Azam-led team for their disappointing performance in the ICC World Cup, culminating in a fifth-place finish on the points table.

As news of Razzaq’s comments spread, social media exploded with criticism. Netizens expressed disapproval, labeling the remarks as ‘shameful’ and ‘disrespectful.’ Some even drew unfavorable comparisons between Razzaq and Aishwarya Rai’s car driver, underscoring the severity of the backlash.

The controversy unfolds against the backdrop of Pakistan’s disappointing exit from the ICC World Cup, marked by five losses out of nine games, including defeats against arch-rivals India, Afghanistan, Australia, South Africa, and England. The team’s failure to advance to the knockout stage has intensified scrutiny on both the players and the cricket board.
