According to media reports, Azam displayed Palestine's flag on his bat during the National T20 game.The flamboyant batter is playing for Karachi Whites and scored 35 against Lahore Blues on Sunday before being summoned by the match referee Mohammad Javed.According to reports, the young batter was fined 50% of his match fees. The batter was earlier warned by the referee not to display the unapproved logo (Palestine's flag) on his bat as it would be a breach of the ICC code of conduct, of which the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is also a signatory.Azam had, according to sources, informed the referee that all of his bats have the same stickers.The ICC regulation for clothing and equipment states that players shall not be allowed to display messages that carry political, religious, or racial activities or causes.In a similar move in October this year, Pakistan's cricket team during the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup showed their firm support and shared their prayers for all Palestinians suffering at the hands of Israel.
