Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan hold the distinction of being the first cricketers from their country to enroll in the prestigious Harvard Business School.
The BEMS program at Harvard Business School has attracted renowned athletes from various disciplines in the past, such as footballers Kaka, Edwin van der Sar, and many more.
In 2021, Rizwan also presented the Holy Quran to Matthew Hayden, a former Australian opener and Pakistan’s batting consultant for the T20 World Cup in the UAE.
“It is a huge honor to represent Pakistan on such a prestigious global stage. We are going to the BEMS program at Harvard to learn from the best of the best in the world,” he said.
