Azhar Ali Refuses to Wear Team Shirt Sponsored by Alcohol Maker

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.

  • It makes sense because you don’t want to advertise what your religion doesn’t advertise. But I am sick of my cricket team! When we be stable!!!! WC is coming!

  • Excellent newsworthy article by your reporter. Keep the quality coming in. Alcohol is a poison and even 1U/day is recognized as a cancer risk. For muslims to abide by their faith in the face of malicious penalties sends a strong message, that they don’t feel its sensible to compromise on their worldly health and even more so, the security and health of their afterlife!

  • PEPSI = Pay every penny to save illegal israel
