Hashim Amla has often been in the news for not wearing Castle Lager – an alcoholic drink manufacturer- logo on his shirt. Muslims around the world have always been a fan of the South African for his humble nature.
Despite being fined a certain portion of his match fee for not donning the shirt with Castle’s logo, Amla has never let it come in the way of his faith.
While we have been praising Amla for this, it is pertinent to mention that Pakistani test cricketer, Azhar Ali also follows in the footsteps of Hashim Amla. You might ask, Pakistani team does not have any beer company as a sponsor.
Well, the 34-year-old plays for Somerset in the county cricket. Tribute, another ale company, is the title and shirt sponsor in addition to being the official beer of Somerset. However, Azhar Ali has been seen donning Somerset shirt without Tribute logo at the front.
This year again, the cricketer will be seen playing for Somerset for the entirety of County Championship and One Day Cup.
Other cricketers who denied wearing alcohol companies’ logos include Rashid Khan, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Fawad Ahmed.
