Few months back, Pakistan’s all format captain Babar Azam revealed that once one of his cousins refused to lend him shoes. The revelation had generated lots of discussion on social media.

“I asked my cousin if he could lend me a pair of joggers, but he refused, claiming that he didn’t have any,” Babar revealed. He added that he realised that he should never have asked for the shoes in the first place.

Following the interview, many social media users believed that the cousin who refused Babar Azam shoes might be one of the Akmal brothers. However, Umar Akmal has denied the social media speculations.

In an interview, he said that he doesn’t know which one of his cousins refused to give Babar Azam his shoes.

“We’ve always offered support to relatives who wanted to play cricket. I’ve never turned down a request. People who are close to me are well aware of this,” he said.

Umar Akmal added that Babar Azam himself is down to earth and he has never seen him refuse someone something. He also clarified that the Akmal brothers are not the only ones who play cricket in their family.
