Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) filed a complaint regarding inappropriate conduct targeted at members of the Pakistani cricket team during the Indo-Pak match.

Days after Babar Azam and Co. failed to end the ICC World Cup jinx against Team India in the 50-over spectacle, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) filed a complaint regarding ‘inappropriate conduct’ targeted at members of the Pakistani cricket team during the high-profile fixture on Tuesday. On Sunday, arch-rivals India and Pakistan resumed their epic rivalry at the grandest stage of them all.

Multiple reports suggested that wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan was heckled by fans during match No.12 of the ICC World Cup 2023 between India and Pakistan at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Several fans reportedly shouted 'Jai Shri Ram' (Hail Lord Ram) multiple times when Rizwan was heading back to the pavilion at the world's largest cricket stadium. The viral video of Rizwan walking back to the pavilion sparked a huge debate on social media.

Those who are in the stage of recovery remain under the team medical panel's observation," PCB's media manager Ahsan Iftikhar Nagi told PTI.
