Pakistan batsman Babar Azam has denied that he or anyone else was part of a group against captain Sarfraz Ahmed during the World Cup.
Azam’s comments comes after rumours surfaced that Sarfraz accused him, spin-bowling all-rounder Imad Wasim, left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz and opener Imam-ul-Haq of forming a group against him after Pakistan’s loss to India.
Reports said that Imad wanted to take over as captain, and that his group was backed by veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik.
However, Azam insisted that nothing of the sort happened.
“There [were] no groups in the team,” he was quoted as saying by The Nation. “When we lose a match, we start to hear about groups in the team. We started hearing about groups after the loss to India.”
