- PCB asks Mohammad Rizwan to delete social media post dedicated to Palestinians after historic win.
- Allegations of ICC and BCCI pressure over the post.
- Pakistani cricketers express solidarity with Palestine amidst ongoing Gaza conflict.
In the recent turn of events, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) requested that Mohammad Rizwan remove his social media post dedicated to the Palestinians in the wake of their historic win against Sri Lanka.
This request came amidst alleged pressure from the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Rizwan had posted the message on October 11th, a day after his impressive performance in a high-scoring Cricket World Cup match.
What did Mohammad Rizwan post?
Rizwan’s tweet stated,
“This was for our brothers and sisters in Gaza. Happy to contribute to the win.”
This expression of solidarity with the Palestinians drew attention due to the ongoing conflict in Gaza, where Israel had imposed a blockade and launched an offensive in response to an attack by Hamas.
This was for our brothers and sisters in Gaza. ????????
Happy to contribute in the win. Credits to the whole team and especially Abdullah Shafique and Hassan Ali for making it easier.
Extremely grateful to the people of Hyderabad for the amazing hospitality and support throughout.

A Gaza health official reported a high casualty count among Palestinians, with more than 9,770 individuals killed during the conflict. Several other Pakistan cricketers, including Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, and Usama Mir, also expressed their support for Palestine by sharing the Palestinian flag on social media.
Not only cricketers but many sports figures globally have been using their platforms to raise awareness about the dire situation in Palestine and advocate for peace in the region through Instagram stories, posts, and tweets. This collective effort from the sports community aims to draw attention to the urgent need for peace in the midst of the ongoing crisis.
