The fact that Pakistan hoisted their national flag during their practice session in Mirpur, Bangladesh, sparked outrage. In the most recent development, a lawsuit has been launched in Dhaka against the Pakistani team. The case was filed against the entire squad, which included 21 players, including the team’s captain, Babar Azam.

While Pakistani cricketers hoisted their national flag during a practice session, Bangladeshis interpreted it as a political message during the country’s golden jubilee celebrations. Though national flags are routinely waved during international or bilateral games, BCB outlawed this practice in 2014. Foreign countries were barred from flying their national flag on BCB’s soil, however the decision was reversed due to significant protest.

“Numerous countries have visited Bangladesh, and numerous matches have been held, but neither side needed to practice burying their national flag on the ground. But why did you do it?”,a Facebook fan wrote.

“It’s nothing new to us; it’s part of Saqlain Mushtaq’s (Pakistan media manager) coaching style.” When the debate erupted on social media, Pakistan’s media manager Ibrahim Badizi responded by saying that they have been hoisting their national flag for a long time. Their practice began during the reign of Saqlain Mushtaq and has continued ever since.

“This isn’t something new to us.” It has been a component of Saqlain Mushtaq’s coaching philosophy since he joined the team. According to Sportstar, Pakistan’s media manager believes that raising the flag serves as an inspiration and motivation for the players.

Pakistan is currently in Bangladesh, and the first Test of the two-match series will take place on November 26 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. In the T20I series, Pakistan thrashed the hosts on their home turf, and Bangladesh would like to make a mark in the game’s purest form. The first Test will begin on November 26 and the second will begin on December 4.
